Opposite sleep patterns

I struggle to get over to sleep, but generally can sleep once I get over. My husband is the opposite- sleeps as soon as his head hits the pillow, but gets up early.

He now gets up at 6 am to go to the gym before work (previously used to get up at 6.50). I can't get back over to sleep after his alarm goes off at 5.50.

The result is I'm utterly sleep deprived and having to survive on 5 hours/ night. That extra hour was crucial to me.

Ive asked him to go to gym in evenings- he won't. Life is very stressful for us both (dealing with infertility) and he sees the gym as a stress relief.

I've now asked him to sleep in the spare room during the week when he is getting up so early as I can't cope with the tiredness. I've no energy and am emotional and upset.

Am I unreasonable to want him to sleep in spare room? He is annoyed.

Sorry... Realise this is more appropriate in AIBU and have reposted there!
