To be amazed at how much snoring can be done by someone who never gets any sleep?

And if he keeps making that fucking clicky noise I'm going to go insane!

The clicking noise...........
That’s worse than a full on drain snort

WaxOnFeckOff Mon 08-Apr-19 01:37:16

I've just kicked him in the goolies to no avail. sad

Trapped between DH with 'man flu' on one side snoring like a trooper and DS who has just crawled in the other side as he's caught the cold, is asthmatic and feeling breathless. No sleep for me tonight then.

🤣 did he not even go “smuggghutfdrt” cough, stop breathing for 30 secs then continue with a real Philharmonic Orchestra brass tune up?

On a separate note I saw a story on twitter about women earning £80 for kicking men between the legs. At this point I'd do it for free

sardinesontoast Mon 08-Apr-19 01:41:20

Do I need to point out that's for DH not DS?

WaxOnFeckOff Mon 08-Apr-19 01:46:24

No reaction whatsoever, balls of steel! And poor you sardines, hope you
And DS manage some sleep.

tbh sardine if my kids needed me cos they were ill I’d sleep anywhere to be close but sleeping in the middle ain’t good!

He's gone a bit quiet hopefully dead so going to try to get some sleep before he starts again.

I went on holiday with a friend who would say in a feeble voice every morning that he had hardly slept.
"Oh really, Martin? It sounded like you were doing just fine - all the furniture was getting drawn into your mouth and being blown back out with every snore!"

Greeborising Mon 08-Apr-19 01:51:48

You need to shove him on his side.
I appreciate not many people wear PJ’s these days so you can’t sew a potato into his PJ jacket but there are other ways ( rubs hands and grins in evil fashion)
Sleep well!

Presumably that's why they don't get enough rest. Persistent snoring is not biologically normal, and indicates an issue.

E.g. apnoea, mouth breathing, etc.

Greeborising Mon 08-Apr-19 01:54:09

Oh Old !
They ALL say that!
“Ooh I’ve been awake ALL night”
“Haven’t had a wink of sleep”
Everyone else is like 😳

the noise is ridiculous. I know he has a cold and that affects things "even though he's not sleeping " and definitely "not snoring" but it's 2am and I'm past caring. Me and DS have gone to his bed. He's not noisy but I'm worried and definitely don't want to be in the middle so regardless of noise this isn't going to be a great night for sleep.

It can be the case with sleep apnoea that someone will snore for hours but wake up very tired. Have you considered this? Snoring is caused by obstruction- usually its temporary and then when we change position it stops but if he is overweight then this may be causing a more permanent air flow problem then may be tired because he’s just not getting enough oxygen!

I'm going to kill DH soon for snoring. He keeps letting out unearthly snorts, giving me such a fright it sets my heart racing. Plus he's waking the baby. angry

Greeborising Mon 08-Apr-19 03:36:21

A solid steady snore you can kind of live with, it becomes a bit like white noise
It’s when they are quiet for ages then deliver a great big “gggghhhhhaaaaarrrr”
Or (even worse)
The click
I appreciate some people on here are concerned (and indeed you should be if your partner is suffering from some form of sleep apnoea)
But I can assure you that my husband’s hooter holes are fully functional and he is in fine fettle, so my my only conclusion is that he’s making this god awful noise to piss me off

Sounds like possible apnoea.

My OH is currently out for the count with his cpap mask on.

When he first stayed with me overnight, he brought it but didn't take it out of it's bag.

He was embarrassed by it. I quickly told him it was better he used it, the snoring was atrocious!

I have mega sleep problems and will do that thing where I don't even realise my brain has shut itself off long enough for me to make some loud snoring noises which alMost immediately wake me. People think I've slept when I haven't, because of the noise. And those micro sleeps (they last two or three minutes if that) are what stops my body from shutting down completely from exhaustion. Not nice.

Get him into the GP. It's not normal to snore like that all the time.

My DHS snoring has been greatly reduced with a steroid nasal spray. He sleeps and I sleep....the peace is so precious

WaxOnFeckOff Mon 08-Apr-19 09:15:08

He's definitely not overweight, he's superfit. He does breath through his mouth when sleeping as he's previously had issues with nasal pollops. He is also in the middle of some dental work so maybe this is making it worse? He had been in bed sleeping since 10. I eventually dropped of but have now slept past when I wanted give a it's my significant didn't want to waste it sleeping.

Good call the night owls managed to get some rest.
