Congratulations on good news to know your wife is pregnant. Following is my advice:

1) Get "serum beta hCG (human Chorionic Gonadotropin)" blood test to confirm the present pregnancy. It helps in continuing treatment at later stage also. Don’t rely only on urine pregnancy test.

2) Toxoplasma is not significant previous infection has limited role in current pregnancy as per current medical science. So don’t worry about it.

3) XXXXXXX (Anti- Nucleotide Antibody) is positive at 1:100 which is also not very high. But still in view of 2 abortions she can be started on low molecular weight heparin medications which can be only started after doing coagulation profile and few other tests by a qualified fetal medicine specialist in your town.

Overall there is no need to worry. Please follow above mentioned advice. See a fetal medicine specialist in person and discuss about starting low molecular weight heparin.
