False HIV test - pregnancy

I was recently told that my HIV test was positive and I am 3 months pregnant with my second child.   They are making me take it again because I have been with the same man for 10 years, never had a blood transfusion, shared needles, etc.   I can't think of why it would be positive.   Is there a chance this can be wrong?

Pregnant women are known to give false positives and the testing person should have advised you.

it is not uncommon for this to happen to women who are pregnant.  relax...if you have not had an "exposure"...then you cant have hiv.
