In brief: Yes

Irritation of the stomach caused by too much stomach acid (if you have a bit of heartburn) can make you feel nauseous.
I would try taking an OTC acid blocking medication like Prilosec and see if the symptoms improve after a few days. Of course, morning nausea in a woman of childbearing age makes me think of pregnancy, so you might want to rule that out with a home test if you could be pregnant.
