What are symptoms when your pregnant gf gets toxemia?

A doctor has provided 1 answer

Preeclampsia: Toxemia of pregnancy, or preeclampsia, is a multi-system disorder involving high blood pressure and proteinuria in the last half of pregnancy. The degree of hypertension and proteinuria, and the presence or absence of other clinical manifestations of the disease vary from patient to patient. About 1/4 of patients will have nonspecific symptoms like headache, belly pain, and visual changes.
