pregnancy, work and salary

Hi All,
i am pregnant (with some complications). My doctor wrote me off from work for a week for last week, and from this week on for 50% at least for a 2-3 weeks period. HR is now telling me that this means that from the 1st day of my "sickness" =from last week on, now i will be getting only 90% of my salary. well, for the 50% work i will get a bit more than 90% salary, but still not 100%. My due date for the delivery is in2,5 monhts.
This sounds very strange to me as a few years back when i was sick and in a hospital for 2 weeks, my salary was not reduced at all, i got the whole 100%.
why would i get less when i am on sickleave now due to being pregnant? (i was so confused by what HR was saying i did not address this question to them...)
Is this OK like this or shall I really inquire why it is so?
