I have no experience with HBP in pregnancy, but my hubby has had it from a young age, so here are my general tips based on what he’s seen consistent results with:

-keeping salt intake in check – majorly minimizing processed food is a big way to do this

-regular exercise – doesn’t have to be a lot, but a few short walks a day is helpful

-drink tons of water

-plain hibiscus tea is also great, but I think it’s a uterine stimulant, so a no go.

If you suspect your HBP is highly stress related, you can also try meditation practices.  I highly recommend the Healthy Journeys website for general stress and specific pregnancy meditations.  There’s even some free pregnancy tracks if you do a search.  You might also see if there’s anything you can take off your plate and let your hubby take care of temporarily.  I’ve done both and they’ve really helped me feel less stressed and anxious.  Good luck on all accounts!
