I am in my second month and I am in the marines so you can pretty much see I am busy. I have a three year old and expecting again. I am having the hardest time with heartburn. Please help

I took chewable papaya enzyme. They taste delicious and they help with the heartburn. I was told by my midwife about them because you're not supposed to take antacids during pregnancy. Also, she told me you can take more than as directed on the bottle they are totally safe, just fruit enzyme.
I used to take two after practically every meal, sometimes up to four if it was really bothering me. They don't work exactly like antacids, but they do help.
You can buy them at a vitamin store, they are not expensive.
