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.

It could be a sign of pregnancy. No one is immune from heartburn. It can happen at any time.

Is it a sign of pregnancy if after you eat you get a really bad stomach ache and can cause vomiting?

This question should go unanswered, because it makes no sense to believe that you could be pregnant after eating and feeling stomach pain. You may just have food poisoning or gas, maybe even heartburn, but pregnancy, I believe not. you are obviously referring to "morning sickness" which can occur anytime of the day most likely during the first trimester. if you think you are having morning sickness you need to have a pregnancy test done as you need to be seeking prenatal care if you are indeed pregnant. ~pawsalmighty
