    Yes my husband is suffering. I am 23 weeks tomorrow and for the past week oh has hardly slept because I am snoring like a train. I've told him it is good practice for when lo arrives. He's taking sleeping pills and using ear plugs! good luck x

    I wish I could say the same but unfortunately it's my DH that has the problem. In fact I've wished that it was ME who had the snoring problem for a bit just so he knows how it feels to be kept awake. I've even taken to sleeping with ear plugs but I'm still hearing him so if there is a miracle cure I defintely would like to know, albeit for my DH.

    Apparently I got told this morning that I have started sounding like a foghorn the last few nights!

    Regarding why it happens - in pregnancy your body produces something called relaxin which relaxes your muscles and other bits so I think it makes the canals in your throat/nose etc narrow more.

    The only thing I was thinking of trying tonight was propping myself up a bit higher on my pillows to try and open my airways a bit more.

    And if that doesn't work well then hey, DH needs to get used to sleepless nights anyway!!! :)
