I know exactly how you feel. It has gotten so bad that I have resorted to hitting and kicking my Fiance. I know that sounds absolutely horrible. mean and abusive but trust me, it is unbearable. It wakes me up all night and I end up walking around like a zombie during the day with bags under my eyes and wanting to just sleep around every corner. At first he got some nasal spray to clear his nose cos it gets very clogged at night. It worked for a while but then later the snoring started again. I discovered that when he lies on his left side, the snoring either subsides or goes away. But sometimes that doesn’t even seem to work. What really upsets me though, is that when I wake him up at night to ask him to change his position and try not to snore, he ignores me and sometimes even gets angry at ME for waking him up just to tell him to stop snoring. That is why I’ve resorted to the hitting… He in any case claims not to remember anything the in the morning. I’ve also been forced to kick him out of the bed in fear that I might not get any sleep at all. But it seems to go through phases. At times he will not snore at all and other times it will be really bad. I just don’t know what triggers it. Perhapds stress levels and how tired he is when he goes to bed. I read up on it a long time ago and have tried many things but the latest is for him to breath slowly and easier when he puts his head on the pillow and drifts off to sleep. I think the faster and harder they breath, the more susceptible the pallets in the back of the mouth are to rubbing each other and causing the vibrations. It’s actually been working. So, I highly recommend it.

Haha oh man, I’m the snorer in the relationship :(.  I didn’t even know I did until he told me.  I don’t think it happens all the time, though it gets really bad when I haven’t been getting much sleep.  In the last couple weeks I’ve taken naps with him after I pulled all nighters, and twice it was so bad I woke myself up! Oh man, I don’t know what to do!  At least he’s sweet and says its cute haha.

Fiance is a terrible snorer as well.  It drives me crazy.  Twice in the past year I’ve had to ask him to go sleep on the couch lol.  (I would go sleep on the couch, but he doesn’t like me too, he’d rather leave than make me leave)  We’ve tried the snore nose strip things, but they don’t solve the problem, they just kinda make his snoring a bit quieter, which does help sometimes.

@AngelJCV: i wrote my first response before i read your post.  This sounds exactly like my FI!  he hasn’t been snoring in awhile *kocks on wood*  I used to kick him to wake him up, but i’ve discovered that if i just kinda kick the mattress he wakes up and i tell him to roll over to his left side or stomach which usually makes him stop. 

also, that breathing thing might work for him, he’s a fast hard breather too, i’ll have to suggest it the next time he goes through a snoring phase, thanks!

I know how hard it is. I wish my Fiance would lose a little weight, which can make it better. Sleeping on your tummy can also help, but most en seem to enjoy sleeping like beached whales. LOL

I use foam earplugs that are hot pink and yellow. They don’t block everything, but they are more comfortable than Ear Seals, which work, but are hard to wear.

Try to limit Dairy in the eveing. (ex. : ice cream, milk, cheese) Dairy often is the cause of some peoples snoring. My FH snores like crazy if he has dairy before bed. So I put a stop to that.

FI’s snoring is awful. I have been asking him to go see a doctor for at least a year now and he’s just been too lazy. He’s thin and healthy otherwise so it doesn’t make any sense why he snores as much as he does. I’m just worried that he might have sleep apnea like his mom. 

 

@AngelJCV: Mine does the same thing when I nudge him to turn over. I used to wake up really upset that he was so angry with me in the middle of the night but the I realized that he had NO idea he was acting that way.

My husband is a snorer too. His excuse was that no one ever complained before. I was like, “You never sleep this close to anyone else”. lol He now realizes that he does it, it is annoying, but he is so considerate and tries to let me fall asleep first. It doesn’t bother me as much when I fall asleep easily, but if I wait until an hour after he is sleep I will have a hard time.

Maybe try those nose strips, or the spray you see in commercials that they claim works??

My Fiance snores pretty badly at times too and It’s very annoying. We only sleep together 2 nights a week really because he works the graveyard shift, but on the nights he snores and I can’t get to sleep, I will usually shake him and let him know he’s snoring and he will put on a breathe right strip or use his nasal spray cuz he went to a doctor and found out it’s most likely due to allergies.

The strips and sprays don’t do a thing for my Fiance.

@agirlwithdreams7: Uggghhhh!!!! I feel your pain.

My Fiance didn’t used to snore but after putting on some weight he know snores almost nightly. My solution is a quick jab to the stomach, works for a while at least.
