When presented with either a physical or psychological stressor at 21–23 weeks’ gestation, pregnant women’s blood pressure responses are reduced compared with those of nonpregnant women’s [29] Heart rate responses to challenge also are decreased at 24 weeks’ gestation compared with a nonpregnant state [30]. Similarly, compared with the nonpregnant state, catecholamine responses to challenge are diminished when examined during the third trimester of pregnancy [31]. Together, the current studies suggest that changes in the physiological stress response are present as early as late second trimester.
