um possibly. when I had it during two of the three pregnancies when I got swollen like that I had the baby. because my protein levels were sky high. you should call your doctor and they might have you do a24 hour collection of urine to get a definite answer. did you ob do one early in to get a baseline? mine did one each time after my oldest wad born at 20ish weeks

Do you know what your blood pressure is?

Swelling and dizziness can be normal in pregnancy but if you have a history of pre-eclampsia already, yeah, I would call your OB just to be sure.
