Sleep clinics at Michael\'s Hospital say snoring occurs as long as someone\'s airway is damaged in some way. \"If you think your airway is a bit like a subway, the subway is supported by a bunch of muscles. \"The muscles relax when you sleep at night,\" he said . \". \"The airway has a tendency to collapse on its own and can cause turbulence in the airflow. What we hear is snoring in the air. My husband said I\'m not used to snoring. Clearly, snoring is accompanied by obesity and pregnancy, which leads to excess bulky tissue in your throat that vibrates when you breathe the air during sleep time, leading to snoring.

The heavier your initial weight, the heavier your body weight during pregnancy, the more likely you will have difficulty breathing during sleep. \"When you gain weight, you increase everywhere, including inside the throat, so that the airway is damaged and more prone to collapse,\" Li said . \". \"People who are pregnant tend to maintain fluid and swelling, including around the throat. \"High levels of estrogen during pregnancy can cause swelling of the nasal mucosa and even cause you to produce more mucus. When you are pregnant and blood vessels expand, the amount of blood in your body increases, which can cause swelling of the nasal membrane. A nasal congestion caused by a cold or allergy may increase the nightmare. On a Sunday — It was a particularly bad night and I saw my husband walking from our bed to the sofa in the next room -- I search deep in the internet to see what solutions are available. He slept very light. We tried wax earbuds, aluminum earbuds, lavender spray, meditation and oil diffuser but none worked.

It’s Oprah- Approved and designed so you can sleep on your back The most serious place to snoring often Or on your stomach. This is how it works: the length of a rubber inserted into a Queen The size pillow contains an inflatable \"bladder. \"This is connected to the tube attached to the main unit located at the foot of the bed. A separate Bluetooth \"pebble\" sits nearby and uses a microphone to receive snoring over a certain volume when activated. When it reaches this level, it sends out a signal to inflate the bladder and tilt the head forward to open an airway that allows you to breathe normally again. After downloading the snore monitoring app SnoreLab, I tested Smart Nora with it to see if snoring will improve in a week. When I heard the bladder swelling under the pillow, I found that my brain had adapted to the sound and would adjust itself to stop snoring. But not perfect.

As for my husband, he agreed that Nora was hit or missed, but it was worth a try. He commented: \"There were a couple of nights when I didn\'t wake up from my partner\'s snoring, which was great, but as mentioned above, if the sleeves slipped a bit out of place due to the user\'s movement during sleep, then I will notice it. \"The third month will be particularly challenging as the baby will absorb the extra fat she needs to get into the world, so it is fair to expect snoring to become more intense in the coming months. @ Postmedia.
