Both are right: There are multiple variables affecting blood pressure moment to moment. If the reflex that squeezes the veins to return blood to the heart is a wee bit sluggish or you're a bit volume depleted, it'll drop. If standing up took a little adrenaline, it'll rise. You're a human being, not a bunch of numbers. Life's hard enough without obsessing over measurements. Ask, "how do you feel?".
