See GI: If gastric ulcer is suspected, you should see a gastroenterologist, schedule an endoscopy. He will look down your stomach with a camera, this will confirm or exclude upper gastrointestinal ulcer.

Upper abdominal pain usually from acid reflux is very common in pregnancy. I had it myself. I will try over the counter medications and be careful with your diet.
