Yes: If it didn't go up at times, you'd like pass out when you stand up suddenly or when you run or otherwise exert yourself. The lowest reading you get is typically the best indicator of your resting, baseline blood pressure which is what's important. We like to see this below 140/90, which yours is. Good news!
