Hi khanzai22

Apart from single episode of 135/90, rest other values are with in normal limit. you need not worry.

follow up with the BP measurement and consult your family physician once it is abnormal.

It will be better to measure it by mercury sphygmomanometer and that too by a doctor. too loose cuff gives falsely high BP and vice versa.

good luck and best wishes for the new angel
