hi and welcome to healthcare magic!!
well it is very good that you have asked this question now itself and yes you have to keep getting the baby tested until it is born to see for any hbs ag infection and you can consult your gynaecologist regarding the vaccines available and post pregnancy the various measures to be followed to prevent infection.
take care.
