  • your blood pressure is ideal/perfect at 120/80......you'd have to be like 135 and up for them to even notice that it's higher. I think your worrying too much :)

  • If you are talking about the top number then it's great! You need to worry when:

    •The bottom number of the mother's blood pressure is confirmed to be over 110 mmHg or is greater than 100 mmHg consistently over a 24-hour
