    So, hubby is back to snoring again. I've nudged him 3 times already but snores again once he falls asleep. And it just seems to get louder. I can't have a go at him as he is doing alot of things for me and baby lately. He is quitting smoking which is a very big challenge for him as he has been a smoker for a long time. He is also cooking Christmas dinner for me, my mum and her fella. But I just wish I could sleep. Think I may vacate to the lounge... :-( xx

    Oh hun I know exactly how you feel. The quitting smoking might have something to do with it as his airways will be adapting and trying to clear themselves out. This can produce a lot of phlegm which could be lying at the back of his throat. You could try a herbal decongestant before he goes to bed to try and clear it or a nasal spray.

    When my OH snores really loudly LO jumps around like he's saying "mum tell him to shut up" lol. Our neighbours have complained about it before :shock:

    Hope you managed to get some sleep xxxxxxxxxxx

    O gosh my OH snores too and it's terrible. I just wear ear plugs every night. They say that what the baby hears now influences what he'll sleep through when born so I'm hoping that's the case with my little man!

    The best cure for snoring I ever found is a kidney punch lol. Apparently he thought me breaking 3 of his ribs was a bit extreme :(

    If he wears stuff in bed and it's worse when he's on his back then sewing something uncomfy in the back of T-shirt or PJs really does work!! Golf balls are quite difficult to sew in though... I'm fine as long as I manage to drop off before him, if not, all is lost!!

    mine has a cpap ( continuous positive air pressure) machine.if your partner snores loudly and stops for a few seconds then starts again it could be cause they are actually not breathing and while its annoying for us women it can result in death for them.so if its really that bad a trip to the sleep clinic might be needed to check for sleep apnea.

    I use ear plugs if it is really bad but most of the time I find a quick nudge to get him to go on his side works. He did use the nose strips as well for a while and they worked as well, and it was then fun listening to him complain about the pain of pulling them off in the morning!!
