Is it normal to have Hepatitis in pregnancy ?

I am 8 weeks pregnant and tested positive for Hepatitis B . My husband also went for the test but the results came out negative. I dont have any signs and symptoms for it. I have a relative who is a medical personnel who told me that sometimes tests taken in pregnant women can be distorted due to hormone changes and something to do with HCG levels. I have two children. Please advise
