When my sister had it, it mainly started with a lot of swelling and high blood pressure. The blood pressure she didn't realize until she was at the doctor's, though. I'd say it started for her around 34-35 weeks with her first 2 pregnancies. This time she's had both symptoms, but no pre-eclampsia.

However, with my first 3 pregnancies, I had quite a bit of swelling, but no pre-eclampsia. And with my 4th, I had a ton of swelling in my legs only and high blood pressure at the end, but no pre-eclampsia.

So, having some of the symptoms doesn't necessarily mean that you do or don't have pre-eclampsia.
