hi taking gelusil should not hurt pregnancy. the heart burn is because of acid brash .causes  your baby growing  and there is a lot of laxness of oesophgeal sphincter that is also hormonal. so you could take  small meals not bulky after meals dont  immediately sleep. keep your head end high with pillows behind your head or try lying down on recliner.
