  • toximia is also known as preeclampsia. It is when your blood pressure rises during pregnancy. I had this problem with my first son, but it wasn't until later in my pregnancy. I aslo had blurry vision with my swelling. This usually only happens with your first pregnany. You could havd swelling for many different reasons.

  • it could be from the heat too. pregnant women swell a lot more during the summer.
