Snore whore

18 weeks, 2 days pregnant
I feel kind of bad for all those nights I jabbed smacked gently poked Darling Husband for snoring. Because now … it’s me who’s sawing wood!
It’s true. I have become a horrible, horrible snorer. It was so loud the other night that the poor man dragged his pillow and a blanket to the couch. I felt especially bad because he had to work early in the morning, and I was on vacay — oops.
Apparently snoring is very common during pregnancy, starting in the second trimester, because of swollen nasal passages. An increase in progesterone “can cause the soft tissues of the nasal passages to swell and partially block the airways.”
This pregnancy thing just keeps getting more and more attractive, doesn’t it? The good news is that at least I got a new plaid maternity shirt for Christmas, to go with my new lumberjack snores.

So what do you think?
