The aids test is not a difficult test to do. If he didn't immediately say "we need to do the test again" (which he would have if the test had yielded an inconclusive result) then this must mean that the test showed she had HIV. Since you are apparently getting this second hand through your sister it is most likely that he told her what it meant but didn't rub her nose in it to allow her to get used to the idea.Obviously this needs to be totally clarified at the next visit. If she is really positive, she will likely be placed on medication at around 28 weeks to lessen the chance of passing it on to the baby.
