In brief: Please see below.

Congenital toxoplasmosis symptoms can range from none to severe, and can be seen anywhere from the first month to later in life.
Infected babies can have anemia, low platelets (which can cause easy bleeding or bruising), jaundice, small heads, brain calcifications, seizures, mental retardation, vision loss, or other neurologic problems.

In brief: Multiple or none

The symptoms can vary widely from nothing, to preterm labor, poor growth of the fetus, finding of damage to the eyes (retinal inflammation), skin, ears (hearing) and sometimes it is mild enough that the eye damage doesn't show until later in life.
Toxoplasmosis can be acquired from eating or handling raw or undercooked meat and contaminating your food, or from cat feces.
