My SO had insomnia for over 14 months and I was understanding during the whole thing. I put up with him getting up in the middle of the night and making noise, putting the tv on in our room (normally UFC with big bloody strobe lights!) and then him being a complete bitch cause he was tired.. I never said anything but stay completely sympathetic even though I couldn't sleep either because of the noise and movement and lights but I understood it wasn't his fault.
Now after I pushed for a year he went to the doctors and got pills that help him sleep through the night.. Draw back is he snores to loud which means I still don't sleep. I can't sleep down stairs because its that loud I can hear it down stairs. So After a couple of weeks of 3-4 hours sleep per night and I tell him that he's keeping me awake and I really need to sleep.. I'm 31 weeks pregnnt now, I look after my ADHD daughter during the day and I'm losing my paitence because I'm sleep deprived which is fair on no one. I don't want to be a bitch..
I bought him snoring sprays, brackets, nose patchs I've repositioned him but still nothing... And I've been trying to still keep pretty calm but tonight I want to kill him..I was literly so tired I almost fell asleep before him three times and three times he startled me awake, like it was a joke to tell ME!! I was making noises in my sleep! So after scaring me smurfless the three time (which was around 9ish, i havent been able to sleep before 2 in the morning most days because ot his sleeping and his alarm goes off at 6) he turned over and went straight to sleep snoring his smurfing head off..
I was sympathic to his lack of sleep but he thinks its smurfing funny to wake me up knowing I feel absolutely smurfed...
Not to mention I found out my dad has cancer today so I have been bawling my eyes out most the day and my emotions are screwed . I just want one nights uninterrupted sleep before baby comes.. Just one night!!
I know I'm being an ass and I'm ranting but if I don't rant somewhere I might just push a pillow over his bloody head
Make his ass sleep on the couch and get a white noise machine for beside the bed to drown him out. We live on a busy street near train tracks, it blocks out nearly everything or at least muffles it enough for us to sleep
