Is this considered high blood pressure

Im 16 weeks pregnant with my second child and went to the doctor tday and my bp was 137/72 and my dr was telling me that I may have high bp. And when i got home i checked it and it was 132/75.  Was wondering if i was on the verge of having high bp or not

I have high blood pressure and what my dr consider as being high is anything above 140/90 but it could be different for everyone because they usually go by your average which mine was 120/80.

My blood pressure is always all over the place during pregnancy. You need to make sure that you take it after resting as anything physical will increase your blood pressure even more than normal with your body working overtime with the extra weight and nutrition for your baby
