CMV during pregnancy
Feb 20, 2011
I am 8 weeks pregnant. I had my first TORCH test 4 weeks ago, when my CMV IgG was reactive at 116.6 and CMV IgM was non-reactive at 0.17. I had a follow-up test 2 days ago in which my CMV IgG was reactive at 138 and CMV IgM was again non-reactive at 0.17. Based on my discussions with several doctors, I am unclear as to whether this poses a threat to the foetus or to the baby after birth. Kindly advise me on the same as I am quite confused about this. Thanks

The tests indicate evidence of past exposure and not recent infection. Thus, there is nothing further that needs to be done.
