My daughter is ten weeks from term with her first pregnancy.

Customer Question
She is 37 years old...
My daughter is ten weeks from term with her first pregnancy. She is 37 years old. I think she has toxemia because her arms, hands, ankles and feet have become very swollen and she has severe heartburn. These are symptoms I had with my first pregnancy over forty years ago . I was induced one week before term because I was diagnosed with toxemia. What are the consequences of toxemia for my daughter today.

Left untreated your daughter could seize, loose the baby or die.
From what you have posted, you need to either drive your daughter to the nearest hospital or call for an ambulance.
Do this right now.
Does this make sense to you?

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
