Brief Answer: Hormone induced gastritis Detailed Answer: Hi, Thanks for your query. The stomach pain and heart burn you have are effects of hormone HCG (human chorionic gonadotropin) released in pregnancy. This is very common in pregnant women. Do take breakfast a little early to reduce the symptoms al through the day. You can also take milder antacids like Tums or Gelusil. Regards,
