When I was pregnant, and suffering heartburn so bad, I would wake up gagging in the night, I used one of those BIG v-shaped pillows, I nearly had to sleep sitting up, but it worked! Normal pillows stuffed under my head and neck didn't work, I had to actually be propped up.

You need to keep your entire esophagus(the tube from mouth to stomach) inclined up so that any Acid which escapes out of Stomach via LES valve goes back to stomach because of gravity. But much better is an hour long stroll after dinner, but keep tummy warm with thick cloaths and not exposed to cool air outside (Stomach needs a bit of warmth to chew on the food).
