Pregnant. Concerned about Toxoplasmose results. Meaning?

hi, I did some test because I´m 36 weeks pregnant. I´m concerned about the Toxoplasmose results. Before my pregancy the Toxo IgM was negative (0.02) and Toxo IgG -Equivocal(5 Ul/ml). In the first trimester the Toxo IgG was Equivocal(4 Ul/ml) and Toxo IgM Negative (0.01). In the second trimester the Toxo IgG was Non reactive (1.4). Finally, with 36 weeks pregnant the results were Toxo IgG -grayzone(1.6) and Toxo IgM Nonreactive (0.03). What those it means?

Hi Karina,
Welcome to HCM,
As far as Toxoplasmosis is concerned you & your unborn child is not at risk. The tests indicate only a past infection. Antibodies remain in the body for some times & your results are all reassuring.
All you have to do is to avoid close contact with pets, improve your food hygiene level & avoid eating half cooked foods.
Take care & have a nice day.
