I've had really bad heartburn which is worse at night and made me vomit but Gaviscon liquid didn't do much to help and I ended up taking ranitidine tablets which reduce the amount of acid your stomach makes and that helped a lot. If the liquid doesn't work go back to GP and get an antacid like ranitidine.
It is a bit early for your pain to be caused by the baby pushing its foot up under your ribs. Could you have pulled a muscle in your chest? Vomiting violently can pull all sorts of funny muscles. That you feel it mostly when lying down suggests position you are in is a factor which would mean stomach contents leaking out (and this can be very painful) or a more mechanical muscle related problem.
