Heartburn is not a symptom of early pregnancy.

Our bodies change every 7 years so you could have eaten something such as peppers, cucumbers, onions or even garlic that may have caused heartburn. If you are a nervous type of person you could be suffering from acid reflux. If you 40 plus and your heartburn is continual it is best to have a good physical by your doctor to be sure you don't have heart problems. Indigestion/heartburn is common during pregnancy but is not a 'sign' of pregnancy and does not usually occur until the end of the second trimester (28 weeks or so).

if you are having your period on time and it lasts the normal amount of time then you are probably not pregnant Heartburn/indigestion occurs generally in the first trimester and the last trimester. Many women get it late in pregnancy as the uterus pushes the stomach from underneath and the hormones relax the smooth muscle. While many doctors recommend Tums because of the calcium, the extra calcium can actually cause Acid Reflux. So try to stay away from that as a solution. Try something all natural, like Brioschi or Gingera. Gingera is greatest because it's got ginger in it...which is known to help relieve the nausea and indigestion from morning sickness/indigestion.

I had horrible heartburn the first two weeks right after my missed period when I got pregnant. So it definitely IS a symptom of early pregnancy. I had never ever in my life had heartburn before that point.ย

Could morning heartburn be a sign of pregnancy?

Generally morning heartburn is a side-effect of pregnancy (rather than a symptom of pregnancy). It usually occurs once it is fairly obvious the lady is pregnant; when the abdomen has distended quite a lot, indicating that there is a fair amount of pressure on the stomach (and some other internal organs). The extra pressure on the stomach can cause acid reflux, since it effectively limits how far the stomach will stretch (to accommodate food etc...). Since stomach capacity is reduced, acid has a tendency to flow up the oesophagus, causing heartburn.
