Does he have apnea? I’d suggest he see a dr about it. Snoring can be indicative of a major problem.

My husband snores, but I wake him up and tell him to knock it off. Once I’m asleep I don’t notice but if it ever got that bad, I’d make him go see a doctor

he really needs to see a doctor. sleep apnea means he’s not breathing, and that could be a serious problem.

My brother has sleep apnea and it’s a scary thing!  He’s actually got it bad enough that he needs to be on support at night because several times he’s just stopped breathing.  If it’s not caught and treated like with my brother, your Fiance might not wake up again!  Seriously, MAKE him see a doctor!

My Fiance is a snorer, too.  I find that if he is laying on his back it is WAY worse (he is a big guy and this kind of constricts his throat a little).  Usually, I will just wake him up and tell him to turn on his side.  This makes it so that I can at least get some sleep (until he turns around again onto his back!).

If it is sleep apnea, he will snore and gasp for breath.  It’s really serious, and I hound my Fiance to go to the doctor, too.  He will be making an appointment after the holidays, one way or another!

For the sake of your relationship, he needs to see a doctor.  You have to put your foot down on this one.  What is it with men and refusing to go to the doctor?

Make the appointment for him if you need to.  You have to explain to him that his snoring is affecting your sleep, and when you’re not happy, no one is happy.  His health is affecting the entire family’s health, and he needs to man up and take care of it.

My Fiance snores occasionally (usually when he’s sick or really tired), but I did notice that he snores a lot less when he loses some weight.  Even 10-15 pounds is enough to make a difference for him.

Ditto to all Bees above.

I have a few family members with sleep apnea, and even though they did NOT want to go to the doctor, they didn’t realize how dangerous and disruptive it was for themselves (and others). Now that they have the breathing assistance at night, they sleep better, feel better, and are SAFER (would talking to him about the kids and his importance to them help scoot him to the Dr?).

I hope that he does this for you if not for himself, because it’s a serious health issue, and if it continues interrupting your sleep it affects your health (and attitude/relationship/etc) as well.

My Fiance doesn’t snore (luckily) but BOTH my parents did and it was really loud so I was used to it until they got a divorce and the sound was cut in half. I would take him to the doctor whether he likes it or not. If he stops breathing in the middle of the night I would be freaking out! He needs to be checked out ASAP!

I know he refuses to go to the doctor but he needs to.  It’s ruining his sleep and your sleep.  Men all think that they can fix health stuff on their own but they can’t!
