hi.heartburn is unlikely with macalvit as it is a calcium carbonate which is rather used to even treat heartburn.in pregnancy heartburn and acidity and belching are common as progestrone hormone causes the lower oesophageal sphincter to relax.you can start taking macalvit at bedtime and you can start taking syrup mucaine gel for heartburn.take care
