Early? Wtf. Earplugs

Thanks if you bothered to read anyway

Send him to another room, although my husband could wake the dead with the noise of him snoring.

Restingwitchface Sat 07-Oct-17 00:13:12

No other room. He refuses to sleep on the sofa. I do sometimes but I'm 50 and too old for sofas sad

MyDcAreMarvel Sat 07-Oct-17 00:15:37

Boots muffles , that's what you need.

Restingwitchface Sat 07-Oct-17 00:16:37

I've turned over and now I can't hear him! Bliss!!

Butterymuffin Sat 07-Oct-17 00:18:23

Good. I'd be frequently prodding him with a sharp nail and see if he was still refusing to move then.

In double bed nursing 3 day old baby who is intermittently screaming and DH is snoring his head off next to me with earplugs in himself as I snore... I'm too tired to kill him or be angry!!!

Silicone ear plugs are better than foam ime

Sleeping headphones. They work. I have bought a headphone extension and plug them either into my tv in my bedroom or go to a 30 hour relaxing music (there are hundreds to chose from) on YouTube via my iPad.
I feel your pain, please try these or a similar make, there are dozens to chose from, suiting every price range.

Ps. They lie flat by your head, you can't feel the pads.

DH sleeps downstairs on sofa bed. I can still hear him.

But it’s a million times better than it being in my ear. Plus his mysterious bruises have cleared up grin

I share my bed with snoring husband and snoring son (4) and it's beautiful blush they're really bloody loud too. When DH gets too bad I poke him in the ribs with a toe and he stops - that actually works!

PovertyPain Sat 07-Oct-17 00:54:06

WTF are you on about scooby?

Dixiestampsagain Sat 07-Oct-17 01:07:04

I feel your pain- I sleep with earplugs in for that very reason and can still hear DH, but I suppose it's a bit muffled. No spare room to banish him to, either...

Crimblewick Sat 07-Oct-17 01:08:04

My dh has a cpap machine. It's so noisy. Sounds like a boeing 747 in reverse thrust. It's quieter if he can keep his mouth closed. But he can't.

I have to slope off to the spare bedroom most nights.
I'd much prefer it if 'he' would sleep in the spare, because the telly and the radio is in our main bedroom, and he has no use for them because he's too busy being asleep and making big intolerable noises.

My dh goes to sleep within minutes of his head hitting the pillow.
It takes me a couple of hours before sleep envelopes me.

I think he's incredibly selfish to hog the room with the telly and radio in it, when the only effort he has to put in to go to sleep is shut his fucking eyes and he's gone. Whilst I'm still going things over in my head about what needs to be done tomorrow.

Dixiestampsagain Sat 07-Oct-17 01:08:36

Cakes- am now googling; thanks for the idea!

Crimblewick Sat 07-Oct-17 01:15:32

Earplugs are not the answer.

A different room is the only answer.

gluteustothemaximus Sat 07-Oct-17 01:24:42

I once timed DH. 43 seconds from head hitting pillow to first snore.

How???

And DH says I need to fall asleep before he does so I don’t get disturbed hmm

Booboostwo Sat 07-Oct-17 01:27:02

My DH snored so loudly I could hear him from the spare room. Turned out he ha s sleep apnea, he left it so long to get help he was in serious danger of damaging his heart and brain. As soon as he got the CPAP machine the snoring disappeared. Maybe something to rule out?

clumsyduck Sat 07-Oct-17 01:27:38

Oh god don't I get that with dp . " just go straight to sleep so your asleep before me "
Well, A: it takes you 7.3 seconds to fall asleep
B: you wake me up snoring
C: even when I relegate you to the couch because I can't take anymore , I CAN STILL HEAR YOU!!

Feel your pain op

Theimpossiblegirl Sat 07-Oct-17 01:36:17

Genuine question- if you are in a different room how do you kick him? (DH is that loud)

JemimaLovesHamble Sat 07-Oct-17 01:41:09

I bought a house, several cars, loads of food etc. ......... and I can still hear my wife next to me being frigid.

I can't imagine why, you sound so charming!! hmm

gluteustothemaximus Sat 07-Oct-17 01:53:41

Theimpossible - there’s a thing in the works called snore no more. It’s an extendable boxing glove. Only goes as far as 70cm though.

Still the write up made me laugh: Never suffer from sleep loss again with this snore-no-more, the instant remedy for heavy snorers! The snore no more is a soft boxing glove on the end of a stick, so when someone starts snoring, simply hit them on the head and they won't do it again!

I have in the past been so wound up by the snoring downstairs, I have gone downstairs, gently not really kicked him and toddled back upstairs.

Unfortunately the peace lasts a short time. And not long enough to get to sleep in.
