The authors discuss the need for researchers to consider the early stages of pregnancy in the evaluation of cardiovascular disease risk factors. They acknowledge feedback on a study with regard to fetal growth in the first trimester of pregnancy and development of cardiovascular disease in the middle age. They also explore putative mechanisms that influence physiological systems in the early stages of pregnancy such as oxidative stress exposure.
