Yep! Nearly immediately you start to make a hormone that relaxes smooth muscle. Your uterus is made of smooth muscle, so it helps keep contractions at bay as it stretches. Unfortunately, your intestines, stomach and esophagus are all made of smooth muscle as well. So your esophagus isn't as good at closing and keeping acid where it is.

And I've taken both zantac and prilosec while pregnant.
