I've put on a little weight since getting married (no jokes please Smile ) but I'm just under 70 kg.

Sleep clinic to determine what is the cause. My OH has severe sleep apnoea only properly diagnosed at sleep clinic. Then given this weird mouth guard thing which 99% of the time works...when naughty border collie puppy doesn't steal and destroy it (which the little bastard has now done twice) Rolls Eyes

Everything!!!!
My husband is not overweight but snores like an absolute bastard!!!
He went to the specialist, they found a calcium build up in his nasal passages so they operated to help him breathe normally and to stop the snoring..... he now has turbo boost snoring since opening the airways.
Its worse!!!!!!!!

My advice to anyone who has to put up with snoring... spare room because the only other option is murder!


If it sparkles or its fluffy its all good.

Yep, the snoring seems to increase with the weight gain.
I resort to a rolled up news paper on the bedside table. Very Happy

You know when the person is a bad snorer, even the dogs will not sleep on the bed with them. Laughing Laughing Laughing I agree, after living with a snorer for 20 odd years the only good night sleep I get is in the spare room down stairs. Sleeping with a bad snorer can drive you to drink or even worse kill someone. Embarassed

This may sound weird, but have you tried sewing half a tennis ball into the back of a pyjama top or T shirt. This makes it physically uncomfortable for the snorer to sleep on their back and they roll onto their side. Smile

My husband snores when he is really tired, so I tend to just move into the spare room for both our sanity. If I keep waking him up, he just gets tireder and does it the next night as well..

But for chronic snoring, maybe you should see a doctor and discuss options with them?

I have tried smacking him across the head with a pillow, kicking, punching his arm, gently turning him over, squeezing his nose so he breathes through his mouth and yelling "shut the Fark up will you" but none of these work for more than 10 min. Sad Agree with zam zam...spare room is the only thing that has kept me out of jail.

Out of my way, I am in the midst of a hoo haa monologue
well either i or OH snores enough to wake up (or keep awake) the other, we usually just poke the other awake and they roll over and stop

OH poked me awake last night. im getting the flu, it's not helping the snoring situation

my oh snores back, side, sitting up, farking annoys me.
The other night told him to sleep on sofa in lounge, I had just bought a good new mattress for my back, so I wasn't going to move Very Happy
Talk about sulk
told him to go see doctor and to lose 100kgs
I spend all night kicking him, soo glad when he comes to bed late, so I get a couple hours sleep and then when he goes to work early, then I get a couple more, depending how loud he is thumping around in the morning, feels like we live in a bloody caravan some days, we are on stumps, 14 square home Rolls Eyes
he rarely snored when we first married, but as the weight piled on, then it started
and god help me if he has a few drinks Rolls Eyes
some nights he snores, then stops, and I think he's dropped dead, nah, next minute, snoring away again Mad

My hubby uses the RipSnorer mouthguard (he gets it online somewhere)
Best.thing.EVER! He still snores, but more like a normal person Laughing

He also says that he no longer wakes up with a sore throat or feeling tired, because he is getting a good nights sleep as well.

I also wear earplugs as well though Smile

I can't remember the last time I had to resort to the couch because of him snoring.

I would be getting him to a sleep centre. You dont have to be over weight to have sleep apnea. A lot of skinny people have it as well.
It causes a great strain to the body, and doubles your chances of stroke or heart attack.
My ex slept on the couch for 2 years until he went to be tested at a sleep centre. He was put on a c-pap machine and we all slept so much better.
Good luck.


I can't spell for ****
So if spell check don't pick it up refer to above.

We renovated. Very Happy Added a bedroom (and living area), so we have our own. Luxury, I get to sleep diagonally across my bed (great in summer on those sleeplessly warm nights). He is a very light sleeper and not a good sleep at anytime, his heavy breathing (before the snoring starts) is enough to keep me awake. The only drawbacks were 1. increasing the mortgage - again and 2. holidays become more expensive as we need our own room Embarassed

I am amazed at how many of us resort to the spare room for a good night sleep. A girlfriend told me it was not healthy for our relationship if I moved into the spare room. I disagree, it's healthy for him because he's still alive. Very Happy

My husband is a bad snorer also. Drives me mad. He snores in every position too. Nods off for 5 secs and starts snoring and when I say stop snoring.....he says he is not snoring cause he is awake. Yeh right.
He is over weight as well. He tried the the nasal srips and the mouth gaurd things, and he still snored.
I did some reading and came across this web site.... http://www.aveotsd.com.au/

Best thing I ever got. It is a weird looking thing, but it pulls the tongue forward so that opens the passage at back and stops snoring. Took hubby a bit to get use to it, but he new if it stopped me complaining it was worth it.
He always goes to bed before me and is snoring away, so I just tell him to put his dummy in ( thats what I call it) and he does and stops snoring. Sometimes if he doesn't put in properly he slightly snores. I usaul fall asleep and he sometime through the night takes it out. If he has it on for a long time he complains he tongue gets numb, but as I said if he wears it till I am asleep he can take it out.
Would recommend any snorer to try one.

I am certainly overweight, and my DH is not but he snores and I don't.. So I don't think all fat people snore, or all skinny people don't..

I think I have become immune to it, it used to bother me but now it rarely does.. I only realise that he snores really when people stay over and get up in the morning and comment that he kept them awake from the opposite end of the house and HOW do i sleep with THAT noise?? Must be from years of practice from me tuning out to his voice when I don't want to hear what he's saying Rolls Eyes

Sometimes if he falls asleep first I have to poke him in the ribs and tell him to roll on his side, he still snores but it does't keep me awake very often these days..

I'm sure you are my twin!,

I've tried all those, but generally just shout SHUT THE FARK UP..... But what really pisses me orf, is that he'll jump, say sorry, and be back snoring within 30 seconds.....
