In brief: Probaly yes

It is safe, but not adequately tested in pregnancy however prolonged use more than a year make you more prone to osteoporosis and fractures.
For a short term to subside the symptoms of heart burn in pregnancy, is safe most likely.

In brief: Yes

Better is to try antiacids like Tums or rolaids first, then zantac (ranitidine) or Pepcid and if those types of medication dont' work, then consider a proton pump inhibitor. Talk with your doctor first about your heartburn so he/she can know what you're experiencing and guide you as well. Best of luck!
