In brief: High

Preganancy is a state of hyper estrogenism or high estrogen state, mainly due to increase estrogen production by the placenta (called estriol).
The rise of estrogen leads to various physiological changes in the women's body including lowered tone of the esophageal sphincter, hence why heart burn sensation is common in the early stages of pregnancy. Good luck.
