Help! since having a really bad cold 3 weeks ago my nose is permanently blocked and I am snoring at night (regardless of sleeping on my side) which has now driven OH to the couch! I know that increased blood volume causes the nasal passages to narrow and this can cause snoring in pregnancy but does anyone know of anything that will help with this as I can't spend the next 8 weeks with OH on the sofa! Well i used those nose strips, irrigated my nose with a sea water spray and used vicks as well and we had 2 snore free nights, then i got yet another almighty cold and i am now on the sofa so OH can get some sleep! but the good news is that the nasal preparations each night helped with the snoring!
