I would be concerned that if your viral load has been consistently < 400, and is now 1,200, that something might be going on regarding your treatment. I am not sure I would wait 3 months to repeat it. If it is 1,200 or greater again, then a treatment adjustment and possibly a resistance test is in order. If it is < 400, then not to worry.
