Will positive IgG values cause problems in pregnancy?

Q. My wife is 25 years old and pregnant. She had red rashes and fever for three days in the early stage of pregnancy and consulted a doctor. She consumed Voveran for five days. Later our gynaecologist suggested a TORCH test. The results of the test are as follows: Toxoplasma IgG antibodies - negative; Toxoplasma IgM antibodies - negative; Rubella IgG antibodies - positive > 250 IU/ML; Rubella IgM antibodies - negative; Cytomegalovirus IgG antibodies - positive > 8.0 IU/ML and Cytomegalovirus IgM antibodies - negative. What does the report indicate? Will it affect her pregnancy?

A.  IgG is the past infection; it will not affect pregnancy. IgM is the present infection. Since this is negative, the pregnancy will not be affected.
