Absolutely normal: blood pressures can fluctuate from second to second and this variation can be both normal and beneficial to your well being. If you truly need to monitor your blood pressure for whatever reason - should be done daily at the same - at rest, sitting down,- I usually recommend as soon as you wake up in AM.
