    You're not being irrational at all!! Your husband is being a jerk. If anything, he should be the one offering to sleep in the bunk bed and leave the bed to you.

    Has he been checked for sleep apnea?

    Wow you're patient with your dh. Mine snores and if gets too bad I wake him up! He sleep walks too so sometimes he ends up sleeping somewhere else.

    Buy the bunk. It's on special and you're going to need it really soon too. Plus it will give your older kids a chance to get used to it.

    I've just read the rest of the thread and thought I could add some useful info. I am a really bad snorer. A few years ago I did a sleep study and was diagnosed with sleep apnea. I got a CPAP and it has literally changed my life. It's not silent but it's very quiet, especially compared to snoring. It's also not that uncomfortable to wear. The main thing though is I wake feeling so rested, it has significantly improved my quality of life so even though I don't love sleeping with the mask on I do it because I know I will feelbetter the next day if I wear it.

    I would encourage you husband to do a sleep study. When I did mine they found I was stopping breathing over 100 times an hour! That freaked me out enough to get the CPAP right away and I'm so glad I did.

    I really hope he does it for your sake. It's not fair that his snoring should impact your health and quality of life so much.

    How much are the CPAP machines?

    Why are people so tetchy about being snorers, it's not like you choose to be a snorer!

    At least you can get the bunk now. Just mention his snoring after he's put it together!

    1. Buy bunk bed ASAP
    2. Record DH snoring and play it back to him on full volume right next to his ear

    I'm sorry he's being an inconsiderate **** xx

    I'm another that uses cpap. It's freaking amazing the difference in using it and not. There are quite a lot of very serious health problems that come with untreated sleep apnea. A lot of people with sleep apnea have it due to weight. Even if u found a way to sleep through his noise I would push for a sleep study to rule out sleep apnea and all that goes with it. In the mean time can u try those super strength ear plugs used by machinary workers?

    I got mine a few years ago now, I think it was around the $1000 mark, can't quite remember. Some of it can be covered by health insurance if you have it, and when the exchange rate was good it was actually cheaper to buy from the US.

    I mean I get it, it's embarrassing to be a snorer. I was embarrassed. And when DH would complain or go sleep in the other room it would hurt my feelings a bit and there's this assumption that if you snore you must be fat and lazy. Some people would rather live in denial. I did for a long time but after I had DD1 I was so fatigued all the time and couldn't cope and my doctor and DH both encouraged me to do the sleep study which turned out to be a god send. I rave about my CPAP now to anyone who mentions snoring. It's been a life/ marriage saver for me and DH.

    My grandmother had a cpap for her apnea. Best I can recall (was over a decade ago) it was no louder than say a nebuliser.

    CPAP machines these days are almost silent...unless the mask slips a little and messes up the seal. My dad uses one...He was a terrible snorer all through my childhood and was apneoic...He finally went for a sleep study and reckons it's the best thing he ever did...Mum does too!!
