Snoring hubby

Does your hubby snore?
Mine does and like a freight train!!! He HAS had nasal surgery to no avail and he has tried "Snore away" and that doesn't help either.
How do you deal with a snoring spouse??

Haven't figured this one out. I can't do ear plugs since I need to be able to hear the children (especially the toddler) but my DH snores no matter WHAT position he sleeps in, back or sides!

I get up and get on the couch! Since our bedroom is off of the livingroom, I have to shut the bedroom door....and can still hear him but not enough to keep me awake!

I SHOVE him... I shake the mattress.. I tell him to ROLL OVER... If I"M awake.. HE"S awake...

But he tells me I snore too... I tell him it's because zi'm sleep deprived from HIS snoring!!

Seriously.. it's just an occasional problem here.. But if snoring is a major issue, your spouse should have a sleep study done.

Snoring is linked to high blood pressure, heart disease, stroke and blindness..not to mention depression, loss of concentration, headaches and increased chances of automobile, household, and workplace accidents...

Serious snoring in children not the norm either... Its really nothing to "sniff" at...

Here too...... if it were a regular thing, I'd have already gotten myself my own bedroom!

My BIL had to have a sleep study done. The folks there were at him! They said he was the worst "sleeping" patient they ever had.

He was given one of those CPAP (???) machines to sleep with at night. After wearing it the first night, he told my sister that the night before was the best sleep had had gotten in 10+ years! (they had only been married 8 years when he had the study done)

My hubby snores so loud that I tell him to go downstairs and sleep,and I can still hear him up here.This snoring of his not just once in a while it is most of the time.I have tried everything and nothing seems to work,but when I tell him he is snoring I get the response,"No I'm Not".Yeah okay.
My youngest daughter snores all the time,I always thought it was only when she is really tired,but no it is all the time,she keeps her roommates up most of the night with it.She has been snoring,seriously since she was a baby,very loud.She has been tested and everything is okay,but why does she still snore???

My dh also snored badly. I would poke him, have him switch etc and even sleep on the couch. When we were in the hospital for our son's birth he snored so loud he kept me up more than the baby did!

I was concerned as he seemed to stop breathing at times. He finally had a sleep study done and is now on the CPAP machine. He does not snore now but I can hear the air woosh out of his mouth when it slacks open. It has really made a difference as one night when he did not use the machine he did not snore that much but did keep waking up.

I think that you should cover his face with a pillow when he snores. Place it firmly over his face until he stops breathing--er--I mean snoring. Well, at least if you show him this, he'll be so scared that he won't go to sleep, thus not snoring.

Seriously, I live with a mega snorer too. When we first got married, he didn't believe he snored, so I tape recorded him and played it for him for breakfast. But, what I do know is poke him, make him roll over, or I go to the living room to sleep. He can't help it, but it is annoying.
