Elevated BP at 40+weeks appt

Any tips to getting my blood pressure down while pregnant?? I'm 40 weeks 2 days pregnant, went in today for an OB check and my BP was about 137/87. Not horrible, but not great. Had to have an NST on the baby, which they said was fantastic. I don't feel bad, have very little swelling in my ankles/legs (most of which I attribute to the heat), and no protein in urine, etc. They let me go, said it could be a fluke, but want me back on Friday to check again. Oh, and no dilation what so ever; high and tight. :/ I was 10 days late w/ my second (my VBAC) and I'm so scared that if I don't get my BP back to normal by Friday they may try to induce me. Is there anything I can do????
