What is a normal blood pressure???

Went to the doc today and mine was 140/80 which the nurse said it was a little high but then the doc didn't say anything about it.   I had to deliver my oldest at 37 weeks because of blood pressure issues so I am just a little freaked out now.

120/80 is 'normal'. But the top number is less concerning than the bottom. The top one fluctuates more with anxiety, stress, excitement etc. So I would guess maybe you were a little nervous at the doctor, maybe about baby, a test, what the dr might say. I'm always a little nervous at appointments. I bet if you were to take your blood pressure when you were relaxed at home it would be completely fine!

I was curious about blood pressure just yesterday, actually, because I know nothing about it. Luckily, my blood pressure has always been good, but I was just curious. Anyway, what I found was the normal blood pressure should be no higher than 120 over 80.  140 doesn't seem to bad.

if it gets above 150-90  I would say thats when they worry.
