Toxemia?

My aunt had toxemia with all of her pregnancies. I think I might have it. Is it possible that its genetic??

  • It is possible but I'd say unlikely. I had it with my first pregnancy but not with my second or third so even in someone who has already had it once doesn't guarantee anything.

  • OP here-- My grandma and other aunt also had it. That is why I am thinking maybe I have it too. I always have extreme swelling (which i know is common during pregnancy) and my blood pressure has been a bit high lately.

    Any advice would be great.
