Because the management will differ depending on the gestational age.

Hi,

According to your wife's reports:
She is having Rubella and Cytomegalo virus IgG positive and IgM negative.
It indicates previous infection or immunity to the infection.
So that may not affect the present pregnancy generally.
But as IgG levels are high sometimes there is possibility of reactivation.
And usually reactivation will not the affect the baby much.
So she can continue the pregnancy with regular antenatal checkups and ultrasound examinations to detect any possible anomaly at the earliest.
You discuss these possibilities with your doctor and follow her advice.
Wish you Good Health, If you are satisfied with my response please rate the answer after closing the discussion.
Take care.

Hi,
I can understand your anxiety.
But according to the diagnostic criteria, it can only be said that most possibly there may not be any problem to mother and baby.
Giving 100% guarantee is not possible just by seeing the reports.
Wish you Good Health, If you are satisfied with my response please rate the answer after closing the discussion.
Take care.
