That is how often my husband snores.

Oakmaiden Tue 04-Nov-14 01:37:40

Damn it, didn't mean to post.

WIBU to place a pillow firmly over his face and hold it there until he stops fucking snoring? And then maybe I could get some sleep too.

Notmeagain1 Tue 04-Nov-14 01:40:50

Only if you accidentally forget to remove said pillow. grin

Hope you get some sleep soon. Maybe somewine would help. flowers

It really pisses me off. But if I ever dare mention it to him he sulks for ages. Argh!!!

80sMum Tue 04-Nov-14 01:45:43

Well, YAB just a little unreasonable, as he can't help what he does when asleep. But it is like torture trying to sleep in the same room as a snorer. Have you another room you could escape to?

Oakmaiden Tue 04-Nov-14 01:47:20

If I go to sleep in the spare room he will sulk too.

He gets up in 3 hours.

Counting the minutes.

80sMum Tue 04-Nov-14 01:51:12

Or try earplugs. The soft sort that you scrunch up and stuff in, then they expand in your ear to form an effective sound barrier. They won't eliminate all sound but will soften it and make it less intrusive.
I hope you get some sleep soon.

let him sulk.

his problem, not yours.

or give him a swift kick gently roll him into another position to ease the snoring off. grin

Sounds like you need to choose whether your more bothered by the snoring or a sulky husband.

After a good night sleep I'd have no trouble dealing with a sulky husband. After a sleepless night a cheerful husband would sh*t me to high heaven!

FedUpBeingShouty Tue 04-Nov-14 01:55:29

I completely sympathise Oak and am lying next to another one who'll be lucky to survive til morning!! I'll be your alibi if you'll be mine?!

Oakmaiden Tue 04-Nov-14 01:55:38

I can't stand the sulking.

Though it has become momentarily quieter, so I might try to sleep again now. Although I find it hard to get to sleep when I am busy thinking" I must get to sleep quickly before x happens".

80sMum Tue 04-Nov-14 01:59:08

Well, I would just go to the spare room and let him sulk! He can't have it all his way. You need to sleep! If he can't understand what it's like for you, try nudging or shoving him awake as soon as he starts snoring, every time. He won't get much sleep and will hopefully see what torture itis to be constantly woken or prevented from sleeping. Maybe he will go to the spare room!

wobblyweebles Tue 04-Nov-14 01:59:10

Why should you have to move room? You're not keeping him awake. Banish him to the spare room. If he sulks then record his snoring and play it to him at top volume on repeat every evening.

Can you tell I am also married to a snorer?

SurfsUp1 Tue 04-Nov-14 01:59:25

He keeps you awake all night and then acts hard done by in the morning?
Why don't you just tell him to suck it up or do something about it?
Your saying he actually thinks you should lie awake next to him all night just to make him feel better? I don't understand?

Notmeagain1 Tue 04-Nov-14 02:04:56

Let him sulk, I never have a problem kicking my DH out to the other room. grin He can sleep in there as my memory foam mattress and I do not sleep apart. (I have back problems so I cant move beds) but have finally trained mine to move when he keeps me up.

If you need help if said pillow isnt accidentally removed, I will be glad to help plant him in the garden.

Hope your resting now, or at least get to sleep in once he gets up. Ear plugs do help if you can stand them. sad

Get a good sleepong tablet and go to bed before he does tonight. If you have dcs its his turn for keeping you up all night. brewflowers for a rough night and morning to come. Good luck.

I often kick or elbow DH ,he doesn't remember ,just shifts into another position and then I have a few moments silence until he starts up again. Nowt more annoying than a snorey husband hmm

Oakmaiden Tue 04-Nov-14 02:12:29

He has started again.

I usually go to bed well before him so I am asleep by the time he comes to bed. But tonight i didn't.


Morloth Tue 04-Nov-14 02:23:26

Bio ear. Buy them at Boots.

DH credits them with his continuing aliveness.

It has been a close thing some nights.

Notmeagain1 Tue 04-Nov-14 02:40:59

Time for the pillow or elbow in the ribs...oops. Did I do that??

Glad its just now bed time where I am, and Im in bed first. grin

EBearhug Tue 04-Nov-14 02:54:16

Has he ever been to the doctor about it? A colleague got referred to a sleep clinic and his and his wife's sleep have been transformed.

Darkandstormynight Tue 04-Nov-14 03:42:57

YANBU! I had a dr. Appt today for my migraines and the Dr. said I was seriously sleep deprived. Dh snores, not bad but I'm a light sleeper. Dr. told me get sleep no matter how I get it. Earplugs or 2nd bedroom.

I could give a fig if dh sulked, but he understands and doesn't. Tonight it's earplugs then 2nd bedroom if need be. Then tomorrow I'll start off in 2nd bedroom if need be. I'm done.

PetulaGordino Tue 04-Nov-14 03:47:52

I was going to say what ebearhug said. Though it sounds as though if he sulks when you so much as mention it then going to the doctors may not be a welcome suggestion angry

Sleep deprivation is a form of torture and I think he is being very selfish giving you the options of either suffering the snoring or suffering the sulking husband

Hope you're asleep now

MrsGeorgeMichael Tue 04-Nov-14 03:49:48

He sulks? I would be more concerned by that then the snoring. Get yourself to the spare room tonight so that you get some sleep.

RachaelAgnes Tue 04-Nov-14 04:14:33

Those foam ear-plugs are v effective, but only when inserted into snorer's nostrils grin

PetulaGordino Tue 04-Nov-14 05:01:14

Foam ear plugs will do the job (in your ears wink) but I find them very disorientating and sleep badly wearing them. Like I'm all bunged up or something
