    Can low blood pressure become high blood pressure?

    I just started the second trimester and my blood pressure is 90/40, I have some pregnant friends that are farther along than me and they're suffering from high blood pressure.

    Can my low blood pressure become high? Or am I going to be "in the clear" essentially because I started low?

    I wouldn't say you're in the clear. What your blood pressure is now has nothing to do with what it might be later.

    It is a good sign to have low blood pressure, however, it does not preclude you to have high blood pressure toward the end of pregnancy. you will still need to go to your physician and make sure you take good care of yourself.
