In such a case, it is advisable to avoid foods that have a high fat concentration. This applies especially in saturated fats, and you should also avoid foods with a strong pungent smell as well. This two tend to be the most common causes of stomach upsets in pregnant women. You should see a doctor before you decide to take any form of medication to treat the stomach upset.
For sour stomach or heartburn I use 1/2 tsp. Arm&Hammer baking soda stirred into a small glass of water and drink it down. Make SURE it's all dissolved before you drink it! Not recommended if you are are low sodium diet. Further information is on the box itself. Good luck hope it helps, works great for me.
Soda crackers help. Go for the whole wheat and/or lightly salted. The lower salt is healthier, especially if you have blood pressure trouble. Peppermint is good for nausea. You could try mints or even mint tea. Ginger ale is great because of the ginger. Ginger is a natural treatment for nausea. If you do not Luke ginger ale (like me) you could try Sierra Mist, Sprite, or 7-up and sprinkle some ginger in it.

Every person is different in what is settling. What might work for one person may be upsetting to another. Keeping hydrated helped me and the crackers helped sometimes but what really did the trick was small meals often throughout the day. I felt like I was always eating. So make heathy choices fruit, veggies cut into snackable sizes cups of soup. Herbal teas , I would take my lunch and eat it a little at a time through out the day then dinner was split at night. It help if I KEPT at least a little something in my stomach. Congratulation. Best wishes. And do your best to enjoy your pregnancy. It is a gift. :)
