Last few weeks, snoring, help!!!


So since about 36 weeks I've been snoring pretty bad. I normally only snore if I'm over tired or not getting enough sleep e.g dreaming too much etc. However I'm driving OH mad, and he's driving me mad too!!! I stay awake for hours on end so he gets sleep but the second I fall asleep he wakes me up because I'm snoring 🤤 I'm exhausted!!!

I have a 5yo daughter and no other spare bed in the house apart from the sofa (which I'm on now!! I crept down while OH slept). If my mum has my DD I go sleep in her bed and we both sleep better but day in day out this is too much!

I can function on hardly any sleep but OH can't and is working long hours, but at the same time I really need as much sleep as I can get right now. I've got really bad PGP which I think could be the reason for this it developed at 36 weeks and the snoring started around then too, I'm thinking it's maybe because at night I'm in so much pain in one position I have to constantly move (which we all know at this stage is heaving yourself over) but with PGP it's 10x harder.

Midwife was supposed to be referring me for physio this week and still heard nothing and I'm struggling really bad with the night times now meaning I'm one tired mummy for my DD the next day. Help 😴

Could you try the nasal strips? No idea if they'd work for your specific problem but maybe worth a try?

I snored most of the way through my daughter's pregnancy and on n off in my son's. Your blood vessels swell in pregnancy so it can happen and nothing u can do about it.

I had really bad pgp through both pregnancies it was horrendous this time. My sleep was really bad but I didn't intend to leave my bed, oh kept moaning about me taking up the bed I just kept saying u did this to me so suck it up. I didn't allow any complaining about tiredness unless I had had less than 2 wees in the night and had managed to turn over once without it hurting lol

Do you have a recliner or some way to sleep propped up at an angle? Granted, there is some debate whether this is ok during pregnancy so make sure you check with you mw or doc. I was told sleeping at a 45 degree angle was ok and it may help with snoring to keep the airways open a bit more. I couldn't sleep upright but I have a friend at the same gestation age who can only sleep at an incline.

I wouldn't recommend sleeping propped up with pgp and sort of laying on your back will cause you some serious pain when u move. There were a few days where I would spend just 5 minutes on my back while j was using my phone, even propped up, and it would be agony when I wanted to move. It's either fully up right or laid on your side. If your bump isn't too big u could sleep on your tummy, things got worse for me when I was too big to sleep on my tummy, went downhill from there
