My doc says 120/80 or slightly lower is desirable. I think "normal" used to be considered 140/80 but they dropped it a number of years ago.

ideal is 115/75 according to my doctor. But you should check with yours because you may have other variables.

"If you are going to win any battle you have to do one thing. You have to make the mind run the body. Never let the body let the body tell the mind what to do. The body will always give up. It is always tired in the morning, noon and night. But the body is never tired if the mind is not tired."
-General George S Patton, U.S.Army, 1912 Olympian

Sounds like it is on the higher side of normal. There is a chart here that can explain more.

I was wondering if anyone can tell me what the normal BP should be. I always thought it was 120/80 but i heard it has changed.

My blood pressure has been high since having a baby and lack of exercise. Its normally 130-140 and 80-90.

is that pretty high?
