My FI has trouble getting back to sleep if his sleep is interupted for any reason. Last night I got home late and got into bed as quietly as I could. He woke up and was quite cranky that he couldn’t go back to sleep.
Anyone have advice? Should I just sleep in the spare bed on nights that I get home really late to avoid an argument/super tired FI?

He might just be a sensitive sleeper or it could be a sleep disorder. Has he always been like that or just recently? If he’s always been like that I would suggest going to a sleep clinic.My FH has sleep apena. He used to snore so loud it was unbearable. He went to a sleep doctor and did a sleep test. He would always wake up throughout the night and be super cranky the next day. He has a CPAP machine now and we both sleep much better 🙂

Thanks Miss K. He has always been like that. I lose my patience with him because instead of lying still and trying to sleep he mutters to himself, tosses and turns and makes a big huff out of it :/
Might have to get him to see a sleep specialist.

Has he tried melatonin? I have been having sleep problems and my dad mentioned that GNC sells time released melatonin that can help you fall asleep and stay asleep though the night. If it doesn’t work, and neither does a sleep doctor, I would say sleep in the other room. My parents have slept in separate rooms for 30 years and they are the happiest couple I know. (One time my mother assured me it hasn’t affected their sex life… great thanks mom) My mom has sleep apnea and my dad is a super light sleeper (hence the melatonin). If sleeping in the other room sometimes makes your life better I would say to do it.

@theone99: Yes, why not sleep elsewhere if is going to cause an issue for him?
I am a light sleeper too, so I know how this feels. I usually am the one who ends up sleeping elsewhere. In the future ai hope to get a bigger bed with one of those mattesses that doesn’t transfer motion.

I would definitely suggest having him get a sleep study done, insurance often covers them and they will be able to address any problems that he might have. There is no reason for him to be cranky and start a fight even though he’s tired and you accidentally woke him up – been there, done that.
