There is no question that when it comes to extraordinary moments in one’s life, having a baby can be right at the top of the list for many. The list of joys and challenges associated with child birth is a long one indeed.


One of the most common problems associated with pregnancy involves snoring. There are a number of things to keep in mind with this condition, particularly in terms of how it related to pregnant women. At the same time, when it comes to dealing with the problem, there are several additional things that you are going to want to keep in mind.

Snoring And Pregnancy

The decision to have children is a monumental one for a variety of reasons. It can also involve developing a deeper appreciation of the various physical and emotional conditions that can occur during the term. Frequent urination, mood swings, and weight gain are a few of the common physical and emotional conditions. You can also add snoring to the list, which occurs when your airway becomes blocked to one degree or another. Negative pressure that vibrates the soft palate will cause the sound that we associate with snoring.


The pressure can be caused by some of the other physical symptoms that emerge during pregnancy. The question then comes down to what you can do to alleviate the situation. In many situations, the situation will disappear during the post-pregnancy period. This is the point in which your body begins to return to normal. At that point, the snoring should subside, or disappear altogether. However, there are times when it isn’t quite as cut and dry as simply waiting until the pregnancy comes to term.

In the first trimester, your body releases a hormone that is known as progesterone. It is an essential element to pregnancy, but it can also lead to fatigue and nausea. The feeling of constantly having to pee is also prevalent in this period, which can further aggravate feeling sleepless and exhausted. When our bodies get to this point, snoring can become a common occurrence.


While these symptoms can dissipate in the second trimester, the increased blood caused by pregnancy can create swollen nasal passages. This can lead to snoring. And if you make it all the way to the third trimester without developing a snore, there is a very good chance that due to weight gain, the snore will finally rear its ugly head.
