    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! :blush: 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! :shrug:


    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!

    Ive been sounding like a train!!! and its doing the OH's head in and mine. I have to sit up in bed to sleep and I use Vicks Vapor Rub on my chest and under my nose a little bit. I have seen tho breathe easy strips but I thought they were a little expensive tbh

    Another tip! I let the OH fall sleep first as he's a deep sleeper! lol So less chance I will wake him up... lol (But doesn't always work)

    I will keep an eye out on this post for other tips :happydance:

    I am sorry that you are all in the same predicament as it is not nice but at the same time from a selfish point of view, it is nice not to be alone! I will resort to the vicks and may invest in some of those nasal strips. I try to let OH fall asleep first but am so tired it doesn't always work!
