Put a plug in his nose?

Seriously though, maybe he should go and get checked for sleep apnea. Darling Husband has it and he uses a CPAP. He sleeps much better with it.

Express concern and ask him to see a doctor.

I’l assume this is new or else you would not be suddenly complaining about it.  Snoring can be caused by weight gain, but also allergies or deviated septum or sleep apnea.  Sleep apnea means he stops breathing at night and left untreated can eventually lead to heart disease, stroke, and heart attack.

What you do is gently place a pillow over his face and apply pressure until the snoring stops. He’ll also be dead then, though.

I sleep with earplugs and a fan on.

Get him to go to a sleep center for observation. If he has OSA, they’ll put him on a CPAP at night and the snoring should stop. It will also help him feel more rested and healthier since he will be getting the oxygen he needs throughout sleep.

MeandYou :  Is it constant or just when he is sick or maybe had a drink?

My husband snores- normally i poke him and he will roll over on his side and that will stop it long enough for me to fall asleep. I find also if I fall asleep first I am not bothered by it

However when he is sick it is so loud- he will sometimes move to the couch for me , or I’ll get him the nasal strips. Have you tried those? 

Also if he snores really loud all the time, you probably should have him see a doctor. It could be indicative of a bigger health problem.

slomotion :  lololol

OP, I have the same problem with Darling Husband. He probably snores like 1 out of every 5 nights. I just move to the guest room when it happens, no fuss. I tried ear plugs, white noise headphones, and made Darling Husband try nasal strips, but nothing helped. I just have to remove myself from the situation.

My husband just bought some kind of mouthguard (looks kinda like a grind guard) to help with this but the device is too uncomfortable and it didn’t last 5 minutes, which I knew would be the case!  DH usually stop when he rolls on his side so that’s how we sort it out.  On occasions where he doesn’t I put on a white noise YouTube video & put a fan on.

But yes as others have said, he should be checked out by a doctor for this regardless.

MeandYou :  Sleep apnea is a real concern! He should go see a sleep doctor and get tested.  Darling Husband uses a CPAP and it’s changed his life.  The snoring is gone, he lost 27 lbs (because lack of sleep messes up your metabolism) and has waaay more energy now.

Snoring is common, but not normal. If it’s just caused by a cold then whatever, but if it’s chronic, he should see a doctor.

MeandYou :  is it constant? my husband often snores but usually just a light touch from me makes him sort of shift and snort and then he’s done. He doesn’t even wake up 99% of the time. It’s weird lol

My husband and I sleep in separate rooms quite often! I’d rather not have to do that, but earplugs did NOT work for me. And I DO sleep with a white noise machine on. We are still happily, googily in love so it hasn’t affected our relationship.
