My hubby snores but it’s not TOO bad. I know this is really simple but have you thought about putting him on his side? When hubby starts to snore, I wake him up and say, “Baby, SPOON!” and that usually does the trick.

This probably sounds super silly, but have y’all tried breathe-rite strips? They’re basically just adhesive you put on your nose so it opens up your nasal passages. They may help?

It sounds like a freight train is barrelling through our house when my Fiance snores. It is terrible. We can’t sleep together because neither of us would get any sleep. We have tried everything to no avail. We do have separate bedrooms, and we don’t like it, but we do have open access to each others rooms and we always cuddle before we leave each other. For us, this is how it has to be. He has a job where he has to be very alert at all times, and I am an extremely light sleeper and will not be a very nice person, if I don’t get enough sleep. It is sad, but it works for us, and once we got used to it, we just made our time before we go to sleep more special. It is also nice to be able have our rooms the way we want them. It is kind of like going to a different place when we visit each other. His is manly and mine is girly.

RenoRose – *I* snore! Sometimes so loud I wake myself up. I know, so attractive. They worked pretty well from what my SO says.

I think they’re only like five bucks a box, so definitely give them a shot. If anything he’ll get more air into his lungs which will makes things a bit easier on him.

Think you could get used to sleeping with a pair of earbuds in or headphones on? Sony and Bose make super awesome noise cancelling devices. You flip them on and it’s amazing. Just an idea!

It does totally suck, but we made it into a positive. I am sure you will figure out a way to make it work. It is really hard when you both have to be able to function the next day. I can still hear my Fiance several rooms away, but at least it is bearable. For now, you could both take turns, if you can’t find anything else that works. We tried everything, and unfortunately, nothing worked. We can’t sleep with anything in our ears because we want to be able to wake up, if something should happen that requires us to be awake.

I give Darling Husband the bow when he snores but it sounds like that wont’ work for you =(

Is there anything he can put in his mouth to position the soft palette (whatever, i don’t know what’s going on!) so he snores less?like a special mouth guard or something???

What kind of reconstruction did he have? Has he gone for other opinions? There’s a procedure called a uvuloplasty that removes the uvula (the ‘punching bag’ hanging at the back of the throat) that seems to be very successful…laser removed so minimal bleeding and discomfort. ENT Dr.s have been performing this for many years now. Breathe Right strips can work,Ocean nasal spray…does he have allergies and is a mouth breather? Lots of causes for snoring,but it may be time for him to get some other options from other Drs. Is he overweight?

It can be extrememly frustrating to deal with,but there really are some solutions out there.

Both my ex and my Fiance snore horribly.  They have both been diagnosed with sleep apnea, and FH uses a CPAP whil eliminates the snoring completely. 

We also recently saw a pillow at Brookstone that is supposed to eliminate snoring.

my Fiance snores and he has sleep apnea…BADLY!

It wasnt so bad at first (my parents snore), but then it got worse as he gained weight (I’m a good cook, what can I say?) and it got to the point where he would wake me out of a dead sleep. I have to fall asleep first or be dead tired in order to get any sleep.

If your Fiance has sleep apnea he should get a sleep study done to see if he needs a cpap machine.  I don’t want to be ‘debbie downer’ but sleep apnea can increase ones risk for heart disease.
