Cutting Some Wood

A few days ago, I woke up and my throat was hurting. I was so concerned that I was getting sick. When I was telling my mom that my throat hurt a lot, and I was not sure why, my husband chimed in with, "You were snoring pretty loudly last night!" (my dad would refer to this as cutting some wood - b/c some people sound like a chainsaw - I hope that I don't sounds that bad!)

Oh, no!!! This happened last time when I was pregnant too! I really feel bad for my husband. I am hoping that it is not as bad as it was two years ago - he had to wear earplugs to bed! However, he still had some earplugs, so if it does get bad, I can still rest easily, knowing that he will get a good night's rest!

So, I have down the following to help myself to not snore as much:
1. we have our humidifier running upstairs now
2. I am sleeping on my side - and I have a pillow behind my back - I am hoping that this will serve as a reminder to myself to not roll on to my back
3. I told my husband to nudge me if I start to snore (and it wakes him up)

If you have any other suggestions, let me know!

I was told by grandmother to drink a cup of warm tea before heading to bed. This worked for me and a little snoring thing during pregnancy... but my last baby is turning 27 this Sunday! Perhaps this may work, but I am sure decaf is in order... or some nice herbal tea that is approved by your obstetrician.

Good luck!
