Does your man snore?


Does your significant other snore? If yes, what do you do....elbow or kick him till he turns over? Does he get upset or do you feel guilty that that will interrupt his sleep? What is your technique? Discuss.....

nose strips

My husband has begun snoring the past 5 months. I think the nature of his job has changed his sleeping habits. He only snores when he's on his back and its not too loud. But I'm a pretty light sleeper so it nearly always wakes me up.

I often nudge him and he rolls over. Some nights he's too tired to respond so I physically wake him up and tell him to roll over.

The past few months or so he's tried out those nasal air strips. Those seem to help him quite a bit. He still snores, but not nearly as often. It mostly just happens when he's on his back and *very* tired.

Same here!

Spotty, my hubby is exactly the same as yours. And I am also a light sleeper. But when I wake him up to stop snoring he will sit up and say something nonsensical, then lie back down and carry on.

One night years ago when he was working at a company called "B&R;", I tried to wake him up to get him to stop snoring and after several unsuccessful pokes in the back, he sat up in bed and shouted, "You just don't understand the B&R way!" Then he lay back down in a huff. I started laughing and asked him if he was awake. He said he was and his eyes were open, but everything that came out of his mouth made no sense. He just looked so confused, then fell back asleep within seconds. The next morning he had no idea what I was talking about but he thought it was pretty funny.

every single night...

If I'm lucky and fall asleep before my hubby, then his snoring doesn't bother me. Otherwise, it's very difficult for me to fall asleep. Ever since we've had our baby, I've been going to bed later than him (b/c of night feeding) and waking up in the middle of the night for the baby. So crawling into bed with him snoring away the bed monsters is more of a nightmare for me than the monsters themselves. ;)

Usually I poke him, push him and he'll roll over. He knows by now that when I ask him to roll over, he will roll over without a second thought. Once in awhile though, when he's really tired or when he has allergies, his snoring is absolutely unbearable. I used to use earplugs but can't do that anymore with a baby around. Our only solution is sending one of us to the guest bedroom. This is the only time I feel bad waking him up b/c I know he really needs his rest.

When I'm not in particularly pleasant mood, I'll just turn my lamp on and start reading. Reading always put me to sleep. The only problem with that is my hubby can't fall asleep with the lights on. That's why I only do it when I'm annoyed with him or mad at him. :P

Mine yells out in the night... he does not snore but when he dreams he will talk out loud and in a bar voice so he is being really loud! He will even answer me if I then ask him what he is yelling and say with exasperation " I was just answering you". I will then say, I was sleeping and did not ask anything, then he will get all confused and say , "I don't know what you are talking about, i am sleeping" and then fall back into a deeper sleep. Very strange!

I have a snorer too!

Mine snores really loud. I have a two year old and it's really hard putting her to sleep. We've, well, he's tried every otc stuff but it just doesnt seem to work. He's 22 and he snores so friggin loud. I'm usually kicking him so he can roll over but sometimes he doesnt. I cant use earplugs because my daughter sleeps right in the middle. I'm going to set up a bed in my daughters playroom and make him sleep there. I'm tired of it and I've spent way too many sleepless nights because of him.

sounds like an animal....

My man gets this out of control snoring . It got soooo bad i Have to wear ear plugs to muffle out some of the outrageous noises that come out of his throat -cause at first- he does Not open his mouth !! It sounds like an animal . NO JOKE . If i try to touch him he flings his arms so i gotta watch out for that as well .I started with ear plugs now and seriously cannot go without .

thank goodness no but...

apparently I do! haha He nudges me and tells me to turn on my side and apparently that stops the snoring...I have sinus problems though that I should probably check out...I've been wanting to try those nose strips though...

i think my bf has this problem...

for him, I am the yeller and the snorer. He often tells me in the morning that I woke him up with my talking to him or snoring in his ear. What he tries to do is when I am talking or yelling he turns me away from him so he can rub my back. I've notice that my snoring wasn't as bad when I stopped having drinks. I guess having a few drinks after work used to loosen me up and make me snore. When he starts to snore or breathe very heavily I tend to rub his chest or back.

O yeah he snores

My Husband snores so bad that i sleep on the sofa most nights.Since i've gotten a little older in age i've become more of a light sleeper so his snoring wakes me up every night.Even though i get irritated at him for snoring i still love him...for better or worse right ;)

Sometimes he does, I guess it depends on the day, if he's really tire or not. I just move him for him to turn around and get in a different position, it does help, cause usually if he sleeps on his back that's the position he usually starts snoring the most and loud so I have to change his position if he is.
