Heartburn at this stage is common, due to pressure of the uterus on the stomach/bowel. Try eating smaller meals more often. Gaviscon may also help.

Hi, try to go for check-ups, and let them check your Blood pressure, this can be why you are having headache, otherwise you can take Panado tabs. Buy yourself some Medigel or Spasmogel from the pharmacy and take 10ml 3times a day this will help with the heartburn. Avoid white bread !!! You can still take brown bread or low GI bread. Take care.
