You can ask your doctor to do avidity test for toxoplasma IgG antibody, which will tell approximate time since infection. (IgM antibodies can sometimes persist for months to years & are thus not indicative of acute infection). If avidity test shows that infection was more than 2-3 months back, there is no need to abort pregnancy for positive IgM antibody.
Wish you good health.
