    There is no reason to think that optimal D levels for pregnant women should be any different than D levels for anyone else. The Hollis/Wagner study gave 400 IU, 2000 IU or 4000 IU per day. That might be worth looking up.

    Interestingly, the babies born to even the 4000 IU moms tended to have low D levels indicating that at least for many of the women, 4000 IU isn't enough.

    It's best just to test and treat.
