  • I elbow him. It works for 10 seconds. I eventually fall asleep after 2 hours of elbowing, I get tired from all the activity. Good luck to you though.

  • Well, when my hubby snores, I try to poke him or put something up his nose a little. Then he moves around and usually stops. lol. Would you be able to wear ear plugs? Or put a fan on for some white noise?

  • I actually enjoy the sound of my DF's snoring. I miss it when he is gone, like tonight. I suppose you could get him those breath right strips, or nudge him, or sleep in another room.... My DF's snoring is like a lullaby to me, I can't sleep without it.

  • I use the elbow method too. If that doesn't work, I wake him up and tell him to turn on his side. Eventually, I fall asleep. The funny thing is, when he works nights, I can't sleep because I miss the noise.

  • I elbow him, blast my fan to try to cover the sound, and if all that fails..I make him sleep on the couch, lol.

  • Well, when it bothers me, I grab a snuggly blanket and pillow then head for the couch or the kids room. ;)
