Nice pressure! Was your doc OK with it? I know mine likes to keep me in a certain range, including a not too low range. Personally, I find the lower numbers comforting.

30 weeks = fantastic! :-)

I don't know how true it is but I was told by the drs when I was in the hospital that your BP is suppose to be slightly elevated in the first trimester to get extra blood flow to the uterus and baby then the second trimester it is suppose to go down then back up the next trimester. I would ask your dr.

Wow, great blood pressure. I would have made them retake it too. Hang in there it sounds like you're doing wonderful. :)

Wow, what a wonderful appointment! I'm jealous of those pressures too ;-), though very happy for you. My proteins have been fluctuating since I had my first diagnostic 24h at 29 weeks - trace, 1+, negative, trace... yay for yours staying at negative, hope they'll do so for many, many more weeks.

I bounced around from trace to nothing to 1+ and back to trace - it varied even within the same week. Awesome BP!!!!
