Snoring in pregnancy

So my husband has commented that since getting pregnant (7/8wks) that all Iv done at night is snore really LOUD blush Iv been incredibly tired but had no idea I was snoring. OH even recorded me so I could hear how loud I was and I sound like a fog horn ha ha this is my 2nd pregnancy and I never snored when pregnant with DD. Last night he had to shout to get me to wake up I was that loud and no matter what he did he couldn't get me to stop blush. Does anyone else snore in pregnancy or have I just turned into an old man??? Any remedies to try and stop/limit the snoring

Totally normal I'm afraid. It's due to the hormone relaxin softening everything even airways! I never snore when not pregnant. Maybe avoid sleeping on your back?

I started snoring badly during pregnancy and it hasn't gone away yet. (11 weeks postpartum)

I snored too, I was mortified when my husband moved into the other room to sleep. I felt so unattractive and huge and that was just the cherry on the cake!

I've snored terribly in this pregnancy. No idea how DH has put up with it.

I used the snore strips you put on your nose for a while when pregnant. They helped a bit (apparently...I wouldn't know, I was asleep grin)

According to the OH I snore in every position I sleep back and both sides blush God help him when I'm later on in pregnancy I'll be sounding horrendous

I snored really badly and it gave me a terrible sore throat as well! Luckily it went away as soon as dd was born!

I snored too. And dribbled! My pillow was soaked every morning until the birth and stopped pretty quickly afterwards.

Three pregnancies and snored like a foghorn through all of them. Asked my midwife about it and she laughed blushhmm. The only thing my DP said that concerned him was that I would stop breathing for a few seconds every so often. It did disappear after pregnancy.

Tell him to suck it up smile Compared to what you have to suffer to grow your child, it's small fry.
In my first pregnancy I once overheard DH say to a close mutual friend he wasn't getting much sleep due to my snoring and how much he was suffering. I'm afraid I interjected with a bit of a "well boo fucking hoo", particularly as I hadn't exactly been getting much sleep either for the past few months what with the aches, kicking (from baby not DH!), heart burn and constant trips to the loo. I seem to remember telling him at least he could still see his nether regions and do up his shoe laces... He never mentioned it again. Strangely. grin Our friend looked scared of the crazy pregnant lady...
As others have said, unfortunately completely normal. Remedies: ear plugs?
