I’ve read that you can sew a tennis ball into a shirt so it makes it uncomfortable to lay on his back. My dad is an awful snorer and he got a pillow that made it uncomfortable to sleep on your back, he tried that for a while but the damage was done and my mom got her own room haha… I usually just pinch my husband.

Whenever my dad or DH lose a few (like 5-10) pounds the snoring improves greatly. DH is pretty thin to begin with but it still works for him.

If your SO is a back sleeper, look into getting a wedge pillow.  I got one for my Fiance but he refuses to try it because he doesn’t always sleep on his back (yet in the middle of the night when he DOES switch to his back, thats when he snores!  bah!)

I’m a very light sleeper and it’s taken me about a year to get used to sleeping next to him – and, even then – it’s a challenge!   (that’s without the extra noise!)

DH is an occassional snorer – upon the advice of a married friend – I nudge him to move his sleeping position and that usually does it (without actually waking him up).  (Usually be tapping his feet with my feet… and that will make him stir and turn.)  If it’s really bad and I don’t have to listen for my alarm, I’ll keep earplugs by the side of the bed.

I’m a very light sleeper and the pillow over my head only does so much!

Fiance was a really big snorer when we first moved in together.  Then, when I finally made him get rid of his old disgusting pillow that he loved, the snoring pretty much stopped.  The odd, occasional night, he’ll wake me up with a snore, but as soon as I nudge him, he’ll stop.  Luckily, these nights are few and far between now!  If he starts snoring a lot again, I will insist on a new pillow!

I try to deal with it, but sometimes I cover his mouth or nose. lol He will stop and I can fall asleep. It is worse when we are watching a movie in bed and he and our puppy are snoring.  Plus, the baby is kicking me at the same time. lol I get so frustrated and jealous at how peaceful they are all sleeping. 

He doesn’t say anything when I wake him up. Maybe it is because I am pregnant. lol

I gave uo and just wear earplugs now.  It really isn’t my DH’s fault, though. I’m such a light sleeper that I even have to wear them when I am sleeping BY MYSELF!  =P  Pathetic, right?  But my DH uses them too now, since a lot of the time he falls asleep before me and I stay up watching TV.

@bakerella:  LOL!!  Your comments are so funny!!

I’m a light sleeper and luckily my husband doesn’t snore.  Well, that’s that true. He just started snoring but it only happened twice so far.

I am guilty of talking in my sleep.  My husband makes fun of the things I say in my sleep.

Fiance doesn’t snore all of the time but when he does it’s really loud. I’m NOT a light sleeper and I’ll jolt wide awake sometimes because of it. I tend to nudge him and make him roll over but that seldom helps.

Omg,  DH just came home and told me I was whistling in my sleep last night!!! What the heck?!?!?!?! ROFL!!!! I’m convinced it was some kind of crazy nose whistle, but he said it was a really funny and really long whistle over and over, and that one of our cats came to bed and brought a toy because she thought I was calling her. LOL!!!

These are life savers.  Seriously.  CVS stopped carrying them and now only carries their knock off version.  I don’t know if they are at the same and I don’t want to find out.  I get them at Walgreens now.

SO tends to snore when he sleeps on his back. When that happens, I usually stroke his cheek gently, and he then turns over to sleep on his side. He doesn’t wake up properly from it, and it really helps.
