In brief: Wait.

You are more susceptible to infections while you are pregnant.
What's the rush? Pregnancy is complex enough; why add the risk of infection to it? Is there any particular reason you can't wait another 15 weeks, since you've waited this long?

I agree. Always weigh the risk and benefit. The risk here, though still low, is a pregnancy complication. I would recommend you just wait until after you have recovered from your pregnancy. Good luck to you.
