Eat something small and protein-rich before bed.  Also, it might help if you prop your upper body up on pillows.

Nauseuous? Does it feel at all like heartburn at all?

 

You could try propping up your upper half a little at night or perhaps eating a little earlier in the evening. See if that helps any, or take some tums? I have heard milk is supposed to settle the stomach as well.

im 34 weeks and i get extreme heartburn when i try to lay down and go to bed at night. plus im just over all uncomfortable as well. i have noticed that if my head is propped up more then its not as bad. i have used tums which helps. but as my doctor agreed with me today if its continous for over a few weeks, then you need to take something else. which he told me zantac was okay to take. so i guess ill try that. but try to prop up your upper body.

Sleep in a recliner if you have one....if not prop yourself up in a somewhat sitting position
Baby is taking up tons of room and pushing your stomach up into your ribs...

You can try to eat either cherries or a large handfull of walnuts before bed. Both increase your melatonin levels which promote sleep, and they are also high in manganese which is a muscle relaxant. You can also try to prop yourself up with pillows and sleep more upright.

I have found the couch has been a godsend for me.  I hurt lying down, try sleeping in chair or couch or somewhere you can get relatively comfy.  eat protein enriched snack before bed to curb the sickness.

Get a wedge pillow to sleep on or try sleeping sitting up in a recliner if it's super bad. Sorry you're not feeling well!

Get a hazel-wood necklace. It helps with nausea and reflux. Also try these ideas:
