No: If you think you may be pregnant, you really need to take a urine pregnancy test that you can purchase at any drugstore or see a doctor.

Yes: Heartburn is a common symptom in pregnancy, but it is a common health problem for nonpregnant women as well. The easiest way to answer this question is for you to do an over-the-counter pregnancy test available at any pharmacy.
