To smother my snoring husband?

My dh didn't snore when I met him. It's developed over the past 3 years and is now a nightly chorus of snorts, grunts and deep guttural sounds.

We have no spare room and I can't wear ear plugs as I need to be able to hear if my DS wakes (he's only little).

I haven't slept properly in years now and if I wake I can't get back to sleep due to the noise.

WIBU to just smother him with a pillow?

(Disclaimer: I am obviously not going to murder my dh, but any tips for dealing with this would be much appreciated)

YANBU, mines had me awake since 5 bloody am, again!

It's starts with 'darling, move onto your side as you're snoring'
Ends with a punch on the arm and a 'stop fucking snoring', then I feel bad so just put up with it.

I did contemplate getting up for a run but thought MN in bed was a better option wink

Me too solidarity fist bump

I've tried pushing him over, poking, kicking and a bum shove. I'll have blissful peace for 2 seconds followed by 'SNORE'

Eurgh, sympathiesOP.

Has he put weight on? First thing to look at is weight loss.

Sleepro is a mouth guard you can buy on Amazon, it really helps.

Personally I found divorce to be the most effective method grin

Definitely smother him, I'll help you hide the body! My ex husband was a dreadful snorer and it gave me murderous thoughts.

On a less murderous tangent, have you considered white noise? I use it regularly when I'm sleeping and it would help drown out the piggy beside you.

If his snoring had only started in the last 3 years then could he have put weight on and he now has sleep apnoea you need to get him to lose some weight if he has put some on or just lay there and think of all the ways you could murder him grinwink.

You may have a point - he's definitely put weight on...I'll have to find a nice way to discuss that without being mean!

White noise is a good idea, I'll maybe try that. Slept brilliantly on holiday because there was an air con machine in the room also it was two king size beds pushed together so he was miles away from me - bliss!

Divorce unfortunately not an option just now. 1 young child, another on the way and he's quite handy around the house.

I'll check out the mouth guard thank you! He's tried the spray but it's done nothing so far.

If you do smother him, I'll cheerfully provide you with an alibi as long as you do the same for me!

I slept in my daughters bottom bunk last night because of dp snoring . I wake up in there most mornings.
It's killing our sex life too. Nothing to help sorry op just wanted to say your not alone.

There's a really good white noise app, it's free and I use it regularly. Lots of different sounds and you can combine them. I tend to use crashing waves and pouring rain. On the App Store it's the top one, the icon is pink.

If it's recent I would get him to see the GP. I got fed up with the pushing him off his back into his side.,

He got a guard and it helps
