Thank you for your health query.
For these infections, only elevated IgM is of concern, as raised Ig G only indicates a past infection, to which you have already acquired immunity.
The is absolutely nothing to worry about the results mentioned.
Take care, and enjoy your pregnancy.

Please feel free to ask for follow up clarifications.
