st: Trend Regression Coefficients of Ordinal Predictor

I am fitting a regression model with a normally distributed outcome (y) 
and an ordinal variable in 4 levels (x) as predictor, along with other
variables (a, b), using the command

regress y i.x a b

I get separate coefficients for the levels of the predictor x while the
first level is treated as reference. I would like to demonstrate that the
coefficients of the ordinal variable levels are trending in a certain
direction with the variable itself. Is there a way to demonstrate this? 

Thank you!
