Hello and thanks for posting.
However, most low-level detectable viral load tests (like yours) are not of any particular clinical or viral significance; and some are merely laboratory errors.
Since you're pregnant (and congratulations!) it's important that your adherence to medications is very good and viral load is suppressed. This is the best way to ensure the health of your child.
