Chest pain happening for nights. Is that a heart attack symptom?

I am 5 months pregnant and just recently for the past 3 nights ive been experiencing some painful chest pain underneath my bra line right in the center where my rib cage meets. I dont feel short of breath or anything just that i have pain for like an hour it feels like. What could this be? The first thing that always comes to my mind is heart attack and start freaking out. Im hoping its because the baby is making room in my stomach . I was last pregnant with my daughter 5yrs ago, so maybe my body is adapting to being pregnany again, IDK! Any answers will surely help. Thank You! :)

You are pregnant 5 months and Chest pain which you are having is not Heart attack.
These are atypical pain which you may be having because of Acid reflux in to the food pipe,or just a muscular pain because of distension of abdomen.
These kind of pain you may avoid acidity and reflux by taking small and frquent meals .
if more problem may take ranitidine like drugs in consultation of Gynaecologist.
Muscular pain may respond to hot fomentation or local application of diclofenac gel.
You can practice deep breathing exercises .
If iny kind of doubt take an ECG to see everything is normal.
Good Luck to you.
