My mom had bad toxemia and sisters all had preclampsia. What are my risks at 18 with first baby?

In brief: >25% - really high.
I would recommend starting baby Aspirin (80-81 mg orally daily) before conception (or by 16 weeks at the latest) to decrease your risk by 15% or more.
Preeclampsia predisposes you to future hypertension and neurological deficits (albeit subtle). Maternal-fetal medicine consultation is paramount in properly managing your high-risk pregnancy.

In brief: High
Your risks can be reduced by early prenatal care by an OB md and if it develops, a maternal fetal medicine specialist, nutritional counselling, and fetal non-stress testing(nst) with a biophysical profile.
