Oh man…. I end up pinching my mans nose til he wakes up or stops. Or I elbow him. Ha!

But seriously, I got allergy mattress cover and pillow covers, plus one of those air filters/cleaners. Between that and my constant dusting/vaccuuming…He barely ever snores now.

Maybe you can see an allergist to see if he has a hidden allergy? For my man it was dust mites. Zyrtec and changing the environment was huge.

If not that, the a sleep study.

Edit–we also got rid of the carpet in the bedroom!

We have separate rooms. πŸ™

 

He needs to get a CPAP machine but can’t afford it right now.

My Mom made my Step-Dad get a CPAP machina (aka his Darth Vader mask). She literally says it may have saved their marriage…or at least their sleeping in the same room part.

@Ms.Sugarsnap:  They aren’t louder than my step-dad’s snoring…but he was a REALLY loud snorer. <– Is that a word? Lol.

I am looking at my FI’s CPAP machine next to the bed right now and listening to him snore, he refuses to wear it because it “isn’t comfortable”….

 

I am in the same boat as you tonight!!!

My parents slept in separate rooms and because of this I never wanted it for myself. So when Fiance and I started dating, and he started snoring, I forced myself to learn how to deal with it. It took awhile but now I am ok with it unless he has been drinking and it’s worSe then usual.  If it gets bad I give him a quick smack πŸ™‚

My Fiance is the same way…  and to make it worse he is traveling a lot for work so i get used to nice quite sleep, then he comes home, and I love him, but I don’t love not sleeping very well.  One of my FI’s friends has a air machine to sleep.  It is super quiet.  He is thinking of going into a sleep study to get a machine.  My Fiance also is a little over weight.  I think he just needs to get on a treadmill! How is his fitness level? Could his weight be an issue?

Both Fiance and I snore, though he’s worse than I am. His dad has to have the CPAP machine but Fiance isn’t to that point. My snoring is due to a deviated septum. Fiance claims that’s what his is too but I’m pretty sure it’s actually sleep apnea due to his dad having it. I usually just push him a bit if he falls asleep earlier than me and starts snoring but it doesn’t help all that much. I sleep like a rock though so he’s only managed to wake me once with it. I’d like to get my nose fixed at some point but that would be quite far in the future.

@Ms.Sugarsnap:  I change mine every week and they get washed in super hot water ith a fresh rinse. I will change them more often if the windows have been open. But I’m like you…I can’t take the snoring!! I would even go sleep on the couch at like 4am for peace, so the air purifiers and clean room has been a lifesaver.

My grandma had a CPAP and I couldn’t take that sound either.

@Ms.Sugarsnap: Aww! Sorry to hear you are dealing with this! So frustrating! My poor uncle used to snore and barely get any sleep…and of course his wife, my aunt, couldn’t sleep because of it either. They struggled with this and various attempted remedies for years. Finally, it took going to the doctor and him having a small operation to quiet the snoring, removing a small flap of whatever was vibrating in his throat…sorry to be graphic! This operation coupled with special pillows to elevate his head in such a way did the trick. Of course, this is an extreme situation but perhaps it is worth looking into as an option. At least, a talk with his doctor could help point him in the right direction.
