Had my blood pressure checked at an antenatal appointment on Tuesday, and blood pressure was 110/58. Midwife said its normal, however was a very moody midwife who seemed not bothered didn't want to discuss further.

Anyone no wether it's okay or not? Anything to worry about???

Yep don't worry, mine flits between 100/58 and 117/70, usually depends whether it's done morning or afternoon. As long as you aren't experiencing diziness that can sometimes be bought on by lower blood pressure then they don't worry

Anything under 120/80 is "normal" when you're not pregnant; they let you go a bit higher before worrying at all when you are knocked up.

That's a v healthy blood pressure, nothing to worry about!

The maximum you can go to when preganant without concern in 140/90, after that it's classed as mild hypertension. 150/100 is moderate and 160/110 is severe. Unless you have protein in urine or you are having symptoms such as flashing lights in your eyes and a severe headache then they just monitor you and the baby. Blood pressure tends to go lower in then 2nd tri and then up in the 3rd tri, I wouldn't worry about your reading as it's the bottom number that causes the worry rather than the top one.

Similar figures as you op. 20 weeks with dc3. Had the same in my previous pregnancies. It only became an issue when I had epidurals for my CSs. It dropped lower, lowest was around 80/40 IIRC and I was given drugs and fluids to increase it. Make sure you really drink plenty as it helps a little
