I think I may be experiencing this dip though I am so afreaid of getting my hopes up. I found out at 20 weeks that I have protein of 213. I will be 22 weeks this friday and my pressures are normally 120/75 , 117/73. This past week they have been 110/65 ,101/63. I am thrilled to see these numbers but again nervous as * each time I take it that it's just a matter of time. Reminding myself to try and stay calm, think positive!!

I don't really know why it happens but I do know that I never got the dip with my son and I had severe PE with him and high BP starting around 21 weeks and delivered at 28w6d. With my daughter I got the dip and was PE free with BP issues only at the end and I made it to 36 weeks. I am keeping my fingers crossed that I see that dip around 20 weeks this time as well!!

Typically, you will see a dip in bp during the 2nd trimester, as more of your blood volume is being shared with baby. That is my layman understanding and explanation.
