paperbackwriter  It wouldn't have mattered because the murmur is due to increased stroke volume, not anything mechanically wrong with the valves. If they had said A or P then it might have actually caused more confusion (stenosis etc.) +6  
cport12  Also an important side note is that with the addition of the placenta, systemic vascular resistance would actually decrease (another organ added in parallel) which should help point you towards an increase in stroke volume. +

charcot_bouchard  Can be congenital mild Tricuspid stenosis also. it also exaggerate during preg +

noplanb  Wouldn't Tricuspid stenosis be a systolic murmur? +  
noplanb  I mean diastolic* +1  
centeno  I think that a murmur of grade 2/6 is a clue for flow murmur. Maybe any pathologic cause of murmur would be exaggerated in pregnancy (due to increased blood volume) +
