Penicillin is the most effective drug for the treatment of syphilis in pregnacy and you both have been given the right treatment .You need not worry as both TPHA and Vdrl continue to remain positive after treatment. You need to undergo quantitative assessement of vdrl after every 3 months as its titres fall fourfold within 6-12 months of treatment.
