In brief: Should be positive

Igm is the immunoglobulin noted for coming out early in response to any illness or vaccine, it fades over time while igg come out a bit later and stays up longer. If your wife had a rubella vaccine a positive IgM indicates she had a good response to the vaccine and future pregnancies will not be at risk.
