Pregnancy snoring

I'm 28 weeks pregnant and the last few weeks have apparently started to snore. I've got a bad cold at the moment too which isn't helping.
I've got some of those little sticky plasters but apparently they don't help very much. Dh just wakes me up repeatedly until I give up and decamp to the sofa as we've no spare bed. The sofa isn't very comfortable and I've got rib flare and spd so then don't get any sleep myself.

Any advice? I think I'm driving him mad.

He should be the one sleeping on the sofa! I can't believe he'd kick his pregnant wife out of bed. We have the same situation going on here. A couple of times DH has slept on a blow up bed in the spare room. He wouldn't make me move.

My advice - tell HIM to sleep on the sofa rather than his pregnant wife! hmm

I was about to post about snoring too! It's really getting me down - I already feel massive and unattractive, and now I am snoring loudly all night too. Hate sleeping in separate beds but DH is getting no sleep otherwise. Last night we started off in the same bed but my snoring woke him up even with his earplugs in blush. I hope it stops after the baby comes.....then other issues will keep him awake instead!

Dh isn't at his best when woken up and sometimes loses his temper.
I also feel huge and unattractive. Like a warthog.

Er, he is going to have to sort that out before the baby comes!

He can start by going to sleep on the sofa from the start of the night.

Your relative size and attractiveness are non issues here.

I am coming up to 33 weeks and have been told I've started snoring in the last week or so. Sometimes I can hear myself starting to snore before I've even fallen asleep! It is horrible to listen to!

I was feeling really bad about it when DH mentioned it as he was getting very little sleep, but I have stopped myself from worrying about it now. The reason being he was snoring like mad 6 months ago from working in a really dusty building site. I got myself some earplugs and just got on with it. I've now given him the earplugs and its up to him to use them or put up with it.

What I'm saying is: you cannot stop yourself from snoring, so there's no need to feel guilty! He has far worse to come so has got to deal with it like an adult, and he can get some earplugs if he is struggling. You've got enough to get on with cake

Yes put him on the sofa! And it does stop once the baby comes so it's not forever even if it feels like it now.

You can't help snoring but I understand how irritating it is for others. Practical tips- if it's the cold use some Vicks to try and ease the blockage. Could OH use ear plugs? Could you buy a cheap mattress/ air bed for the lounge or nursery for one of you to sleep on? OH may need it anyway when baby arrives so may be worth investing in now.

I've had crazy snoring since the beginning! I just bought my dh earplugs....

I became a snorer in pregnancy too. Tell your DH to fuck off, you can't be sleeping on the sofa! He'll just have to suck it up and get some earplugs.

My husband has been in the spare room for at least a month or so (33 weeks now) as I've been snoring. He'll probably stay there until our baby is 6 months and goes into her own room.. That worked for us last time so he got some sleep.
I would seriously consider how you can make a comfortable second bed in your home because there are going to be a lot of disturbed nights coming up.
Pregnancy: it's a classy business!!

I know the feeling! DH has been in the spare room for the last few months (33 weeks pregnant now) - We will swap once baby arrives and hopefully after 6 months I'll drop back to pre-pregnancy non-snoring!
