If so, what don you do about it? I don't want to have to sleep in another room.
Ohropax (see link) - unusually comfortable soft wax earplugs from Germany - and a mutual agreement that I can nudge him and he'll roll over. He only snores on his back; goes to sleep on his side but then rolls over and the snoring starts.
Loud snorers are usually fat hogs.
If they'd lose some poundage, they'd lower the decibel level in the boudoir.
Tell that to my bf who is 6'2/167, r2.
Same as R3, my partner is 6'1 and 170 lbs - in fact he's running the NYC marathon. It's true though that obese people tend to snore.
In my partner's case I think a contributing factor is that he gets congested from eating dairy foods right before bedtime. He denies it but, it seems to me that many of the times we have a bad snoring night, I wake up first and in the kitchen I find evidence that he consumed cheese or yogurt or milk right before bedtime.
Skinny snorers haven't found their inner hog yet.
Fast forward 25 years, you'll see!
Yeah, but even though it sometimes keeps me awake, I find it comforting.
Yes, and it's turning into apnea. I have to roll him over. And after a while I sleep in another bed, or on the couch, until he slows down - usually from 11-3 I'm somewhere else.
He isn't doing anything about the apnea. He blames his sinuses and is working on allergy relief. He's in his 60s and those soft tissues are just slapping together and no amount of prescription nose spray is going to take care of it.
He has suggested separate sleeping rooms, but I can't bear the thought of it. I'd rather float than lose that connection - our bedroom - and feel time separating us.
My partner refused to do anything about his snoring and I ended up sleeping in the other bedroom. It didn't do wonders for our relationship - it drifted us apart.
However - I can understand how it could work. For me though, I was resentful and he didn't understand what torture it is to live with a person who snores LOUD.
I want to know the phenomenon that everyone can hear you snoring, even keeping people up yet you can't hear yourself.
for 28 years but I still love him :)
Mine snores loudly and flails about in his sleep. I don't like wearing ear plugs, so when he stays with me, it's Ambien time.
I hate to say it but, Ambien -for you.
Everyone I know snores. Even my cat.
I pinch his nipples so that he wakes up and rolls over.
Mine only snores when he's extremely tired and hasn't gotten enough rest that week. I usually wake him and tell him he's snoring so that he can at least turn his head. He sleeps flat on his back facing straight up which makes snoring worse.
If you're Kevin Jonas you get a reality show.
We both now snore up a storm. Age and weight. We now have 2 bedrooms so that we can each get a good night sleep.
Are you still in love with each other, R17?
Very much so. 25 years and counting. But sleep is sleep and he is a stay at home frau cooking and doing whatever and I am a worker drone.
