Try asking this question in the 3rd trimester board because I know most woman that get this disease get it in the 3rd trimester.

I got toxiema during my first pregnancy. I was about 38 1/2 weeks and my legs started to swell real bad and fast. I had to wear my husbands shoes cause mine would not fit. The swelling was up my legs to my mid thigh. My mother made me go to the hospital and they took my blood pressure and it was 198/103. REAL HIGH!! The doctor asked me if I was seeing spots. I felt fine. Totally fine, no headache or pressure. The baby was moving and everything was feeling normal for me. So, they admitted me and induced me. And I had a big baby girl 9lb 5oz. That was back in 1997. I had swelling of the feet like many women do but this seemed to be different. Real puffy and when you pushed in on my leg or ankle the indent would not go away. Hope this helps.
