    Sounds pretty okay to me. After having PIH with my last pregnancy when I went in at 7 weeks and heard 101/63 I was estatic. It doesn't sound low to me at all.

    Yeah it's a little low but if you feel okay, I wouldn't worry. My sister ran really low through a couple of her pregnancies, and my father had lows too and they wondered how he was still conscious

    Thats a little low, mine at the docs today was 78/48. He asked if I was feeling ok. So I had a bunch of tests done.

    Here is a chart.

    Mine is usually 90/60.
    During this pregnancy it's measured as low as 80/45. That made me feel dizzy and faint. But now it's headed back up again and I feel better.
    Low blood pressure is actually a good thing healthwise, it's only bad if it makes you faint. Get up from sitting or lying down slowly and take your time going up the stairs. And don't stand in one spot too long.

    It is fine unless you're feeling faint/dizzy from it, then have it checked out.

    My sister's BP runs low like that....They're not sure why, it just seems to be her normal. She does get dizzy and lightheaded quite a bit though.

    I think if the top number is less than 50 I would be concerned. Are u feeling dizzy or anything?

    That's about where mine sits too, but I do get light headed sometimes if I get up too quickly etc.

    The last few times I've had my BP taken, it's been about 80/50. The doctors have said that low bp in itself is good, but if it's causing symptoms like fainting/dizziness/lightheadedness, then it is a problem. Be careful standing up after sitting, or sitting up after lying down.
