with regarding to diet during pregnancy, here are a few points
1. Choose foods high in fiber that are enriched such as whole-grain breads, cereals,, rice, fruits, and vegetables.
2. Eat and drink at least four servings of dairy products and calcium-rich foods a day to help ensure that you are getting 1000-1300 mg of calcium in your daily diet during pregnancy.
This you can do, by take CALCIVIT tab 2 times in a day , throughout the pregnancy
this can be taken now?
Eat at least three servings of iron-rich foods per day to ensure you are getting 27 mg of iron daily.
or needs to nbe started at leter point of pregnancy?
you can start them, right away
Choose at least one good source of vitamin C every day, such as oranges, grapefruits, strawberries, honeydew, papaya, broccoli, cauliflower, Brussel sprouts, XXXXXXX peppers, tomatoes, and mustard greens. Pregnant women need 70 mg of vitamin C a day.
Choose at least one good source of folic acid every day, like dark XXXXXXX leafy vegetables, veal, and legumes (lima beans, black beans, black-eyed peas and chickpeas).
I am facing acidity issues
and quite bad back-aches
though, you are on Folvite, you can eat such diet
that is common during the first trimester , due to morning sickness
this will reduce the acid production
should i avoid patatoes and the likes?
and reduce the symptoms
yes, you should as they worsen the acidity
avoid spicy foods
Avoid drinks containing caffeine (coffee, tea, cola) because these can relax the XXXXXXX and allow acid to reflux back into the esophagus.
Don't eat big meals. Eat several small meals throughout the day instead.
Wait at least three hours after your last meal before going to bed.
It's important to drink plenty of water during pregnancy (8-10 glasses daily) along with other fluids, but don't drink these only at mealtimes.
Large quantities of fluids can distend your stomach, putting more pressure on the XXXXXXX and forcing it to open inappropriately. Drink some of your fluids in between meals.
Wear loose, comfortable clothing. You need to avoid any tightness around your waist and stomach.
Sit upright in a comfortable chair rather than slouching.
Sleep with your head and shoulders propped up with a wedge pillow or elevate the head of your bed six to eight inches.
This will allow gravity to work for you and it will help keep your stomach acids where they should be--in your stomach and not in your esophagus.
Exercises such as yoga, pilates, and stretching will also help
Antacids like Gelusil MPS, don't cross the placenta into the baby's bloodstream, and are therefore considered a good option in the treatment of acid reflux, as in your case

Is there anything else , you need help with ?
Is it safe to get physically close with my partner?
yes, you can have sex, during pregnancy, upto the 2nd trimester or even till 3rd trimester
but you need to use woman on top position or side positions
and avoid pressure on the abdomen, during sex
if u feel uncomfortable or pain, you should slow it down
