I’m the snorer in our relationship, he’s the bed hog. I try to take decongestant and that seems to help.

Sounds like he needs a sleep study to be evaluated for sleep apnea

Oh boy so funny that I’m reading this because I have been snoring like crazy lately! And I know I’m keeping my husband up. I’m 33 weeks pregnant so I’m on my sides only but I still snore. My nose is stuffy every night at bedtime. Fine during the day but as soon as I hit the pillow, I’m stuffy. Therefore, my mouth is open and I’m snoring. I need to start using those breathe right strips again… And we have a fan/Air conditioner on every night, so there’s the white noise…yet he can still hear me. I wish he’d put in ear plugs but he’s so paranoid that he won’t wake up for work. I think I’m going to offer again to set 2 alarms for him (my phone and iPad) and he could set his alarm too. I’m a light sleeper so I’ll hear the alarms! I would not mind going into another room at all, but he won’t let me! haha! He wants to be close to me (so sweet I know) but Geez, i’m just pissing him off every morning. This morning, I could tell I woke him up, I could just feel it, that I was snoring. then he got up before his alarm went off. I said “You ok?” and he (luckily) doesn’t make me feel bad at all. He just said yeah it’s time to get up for work. A minute later, his alarm went off. So, this man, who loves his sleep, got up before his alarm went off, probably because he was awake and annoyed! He gets over things so quickly so I didn’t bother mentioning anything. But boy do I know I probably annoyed the crap out of him all night.


I did try a humidier the past few nights- It’s not working.

dodobee :  My DH snored for YEARS and it drove me crazy.  His doctor finally referred him to a sleep specialist and it turns out he had sleep apnea! Turns out if this is untreated it can lead to all sorts of health problems, and utlimately a shorter life span.

He has been usung a CPAP while sleeping for the last three years and the difference has been amazing! He lost 20lbs, has more energy, and we both sleep through the night.

Fingers crossed that it’s nothing serious for your husband, but snoring can be indicative of other problesm, so please get him to the doctor to get checked!

dodobee :  THE FISH!!!!! He keeps the fish!? It’s so nice of him to want to keep custody of it, the great chore that it will be to take care of 😛

Glad that he’s listening to you and is taking it seriously.. with the great dash of humor. Let us know what the doc says.

I just have to say, this title and post are hilarious. No advice for snoring though.
