well, the current answer for your question would be NO.
As of this moment (that i know of) there is no solid data/ evidence showing that hyperbaric pressure causes harm to the fetus.
But there have been records of pregnant mother who go through hyperbaric treatment (i.e for carbon monoxide poisoning) and came out unscathed.
They did some studies using pregnant sheeps and the results were not in favour of fetal survival.
Anyway, all of this only applies if you are certain that you are pregnant. if you are just going for a trip and hoping to get pregnant along they way....well by all means..have fun!  ;)

The first 4 months is the most important period of pregnancy. This is the time where miscarriage might occurs. Best to avoid stressful condition to the mother and the fetus at this time e.g. diving. You might go diving after the first trimester. If in doubt seek advise from your O&G doctor.

well.. it doesn't matter at what stage is your pregnancy. a viable pregnancy is a viable pregnancy. at 2 months you can see the heart beating already  ;) so thats definitely a pregnancy yes? anyway, best not to risk it. miscarriages are quite frequent these days especially in the first and second trimester. so when you are expecting...jaga la betul-betul.
