Im 34wpregnant & having indigestion and GERD afternoon or nighttime.Causing me to feel faint, breathless, dizzy, cannot stand long hours.What can I eat?

Abdominal pain, bloating and acid indigestion thought to be GERD now followed by constipation/fatigue/nausea - high fibre+omep/ran no effect, causes?
GI: Most common cause is often diet related, however once it gets to this point it is usually dysbiosis. Abnormal bacterial function.
