Thanks for writing to us.
It seems that you had an exposure to rubella but you are not actively infected. Since you conceived after an IVF procedure, you should continue with the pregnancy as the fetus is not likely to be affected n first ten days after conception till implantation takes place.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
