MY sweetheart is a very light sleeper and often, if he wakes up in the middle of the night, he can't get back to sleep. This has been an issue lately as I have started snoring!
Prepregnancy I rarely if ever snored. If and when I did, I usually woke myself up and the snoring would cease pretty quickly.
I started snoring about a month ago, but first it was only when sleeping on my left side. Now I am snoring pretty much the whole night, no matter what position I am in, and I don't even notice it! Actually, last night I did wake myself up a few times, but the snoring continued as soon as I went back to sleep.
None of this would be too big of an issue if my DP wasn't such a light sleeper. Every morning he starts the day with "oh my goodness, your snoring was intense last night!" I worry about his sleeping habits for the next few months and don't want him to lose sleep just because I have extra mucus production. He has earplugs and an herbal sleep tincture I made him (which he never remembers to take before bed), but I feel there has got to be a way to get me to stop.
Any one out there have any snore stop advice? I am going to cut out dairy for a little while, just to see if that helps cut back on the mucus (I'm not even really congested, it just seems to creep up on me late at night). But is there anything else you've found that helps? Do those snore strips you put on your nose work? Anything! I'm scared it's going to start hindering with my own sleep soon.
Thanks ladies! Even if you don't have any advice and can just sympathize a little with me. I'm not the only one, right?
