Am 26w pg with DS3. Suffering terrible pg insomnia. DH falls asleep literally within minutes of getting into bed and his breathing drives me potty as I lie awake stewing about being awake. Arrrrrgggghhhh

YANBU to want to elbow him. Yabu to actually to it. I recommend breathe right strips to ease his noisy breathing. Personally I wear ear plugs (light sleeper at the best of times and DH snores. I'm 38 weeks pregnant myself!).

I don't think he's even breathing noisily, just normally!! wink Good idea re the earplugs though, I actually think I did that last pg so thanks for the reminder.

save the accidental elbowing for when it is his turn to change a nappy in the middle of the night. grin

Have you tried going to bed 1/2 hour before him so you can get to sleep before he turns in for the night.

Dh is one of those immediate sleepers too, and it takes me at least 1/2 hour to get off.

Wow! Are you me?? My DH falls asleep within seconds of his head hitting the pillow and then snores like a wounded walrus!

Yanbu I have decamped to the dining room sofa bed as mine is driving me mad. I was in bed 2 hours at least before he came upstairs but what with sticking his feet on me to get warm, rolling so far on to my side of the bed that I couldn't actually lie flat so waking me up he then starts snoring like a stuck pig and no amount of poking kicking elbowing are stopping him. And to top it all the fecking police helicopter is doing circles overhead!
