Try asking Cyberdoc, as this is outside of my area of expertise. I'd think the TB might be a more likely and immediate risk to the baby. I would think she should have informed you from the start, about her infectious disease problem. HIV, damaging resistance to infections, commonly occurs along with TV and can make it harder to treat.
