What is acidity?: Do you mean abdominal pain, discomfort, heartburn, nausea, or refluxing acid up into your throat. Or is it more morning sickness? I would initially try Omeprazole in the evenings, if too expensive start with maalox or carafate (sucralfate) in the evenings. It may be motion sickness, expecially if you are reading., if so try stopping that.

Antacids: A sense of gastric acidity, with pain in the upper abdomen, and a sour taste in the mouth, can be quickly alleviated with over the counter antacids that contain either calcium carbonate or aluminum and magnesium hydroxides. If symptoms are frequent, consult your doctor, as you may need stronger medications. Many strong medications are available over the counter as well.

Something else.: You are suffering from something else. Body "acidity" is not generaly user adjustable. Alterations in acid status indicate very serious underlying illness and are usually life threatening. If you eat a regular vegetarian diet your "acid" status will be normal. If you are having symptoms that are bothersome see someone about it.
