In brief: See your doctor

This may be preeclampsia (old term "toxemia").
It starts in late pregnancy, exact cause unknown, more common in first pregnancy. Symptoms: high blood pressure, fluid retention, protein in urine, headaches, vision changes. These can progress to seizures, kidney, and blood problems. Iv magnesium is used to prevent seizures and labor may be started since delivery is the best treatment. Be seen now.
