Dr can't get a blood pressure reading

I go the the dr every two to three weeks to get my coumadin levels checked. I'm on coumadin since I had blood clots two years ago. Anyway, the last time I was there they couldn't hear my blood pressure. Three different people tried. The dr said, "it happens." I'm starting to freak out because I've heard if you can't hear blood pressure it could be due to a blockage in the heart. Has anyone had this happen before? Why wouldn't they be able to hear my blood pressure? The doctor was able to get a systolic reading from my wrist which was 123 so she wasn't worried at all. Thanks.
