    Default Does anyone's husband snore?? How do you deal with it?

    My dh has started snoring little by little and it's getting louder and louder, it's driving me INSANE I can't sleep with any noise going on, I can't sleep with ear plugs either, and he gets crabby when I'm constantly shushing him. I have chronic insomnia so it's very hard for me to fall asleep even with sleeping tablets, they are hit and miss.

    If i go to bed earlier and fall asleep before him his snoring still constantly wakes me, last night for eg i was up til 2 am, it's not feasible when i have to be up at 6 to get the kids up for school.. He is 1.80cm in height and is 83kgs, he's at his heaviest but he's not fat, he's extremely slim except his enormous stomach, it looks quite odd actually- he looks 9 months pregnant and it's obviously where his weight goes. Could it be his increasing waistline contributing to the increasing snoring? I'm at my wits end and constantly irritated, I'm so tired and crabby and he refuses to sleep elsewhere (he can sleep anywhere literally) knowing I can't sleep anywhere else but the bed.

    Does he sleep on his back or side? DH only snores on his back, I shove him onto his side and it's fine.

    He snores no matter which way he sleeps, no matter how flat or elevated he is either..

    We alternate between me wearing earplugs on bad nights, or sleeping in seperate rooms every few nights to get a solid decent sleep. Keeps us happy and sane

    Could you get a spare bed for another room that he (or you) will sleep in? I know some people are a bit funny about sleeping separately but its honestly not worth the hassle and fights from being tired and irritable

    Yes my DH snores...every...single...night!
    It started that he used to snore when on his back (and after a few too many drinks). Then progressed to full blown snoring on his back, side, stomach.

    How do I deal with it...He moved into the spare bedroom. This worked a treat for both of us for a while. Although not the message we wanted to convey to the kids. It came to a head last holiday when we had to share a bed again and our baby DS was in a cot in our room. DS was up screaming all night. He just couldn't sleep for the snoring.

    This was the last straw, DH finally went to sleep study and now wears a respiratory mask at night. We are back in the same bed together and we are both getting a fabulous nights sleep.

    Yes. Every night. I can hear him on the other side of the house!! I am surprised he doesn't have permanent bruises with me and dd constantly pushing shoving etc. I once woke up to dd hitting him with a pillow! Nothing helps. The dr suggested getting him tested for sleep apnea which we are going to do

    Yeah, it's terrible. Not an everynight thing though..if it's really bad, I wake him to tell him to roll on his side. The baby is in our room and amazingly she snoozes through it lol.

    We use the mute nasal clips. DH has started pulling them out in the middle of the night but I can at least get to sleep. He has to lie on his right side though or he still snores - no idea why and he won't go to the doctors!
