Shouldn't be needed as you get that from fecal matter if the cat has eaten a rodent that was infected. But better safe than sorry I guess although even if it comes up positive you could have had it before you got pregnant if you've spent any significant amount of time around cats and cleaning litter boxes. It can be deadly to the baby if you get it while pregnant, but if you've already had it you're safe and I don't believe you can get it from a scratch. Even if you could skin would have to be broken. So I wouldn't stress yourself out about it.
