Snoring during pregnancy should not alarm you or yourpartner.  During pregnancy, your bodyundergoes a lot of changes and will eventually return to normal after you putto bed.  Not every pregnant woman snoreswhen sleeping.



In fact , a recent study carried out by sleep doctors showedthat only about 4% of women snored during pregnancy. These were women who neversnored before they got pregnant. The results seemed to show that pregnancy andsnoring go hand in hand.


Snoring is caused by constrictions in the airway i.e. itoccurs when your soft palate vibrates and rubs against other parts of thethroat. Snoring sounds can reach up to 90 decibels, the same sound a passingtrain makes.

An example is weight gain during pregnancy.
When you gain weight during pregnancy, you neck becomesthicker.  

There is also a greater bloodflow during pregnancy that can constrict blood vessels and make your airwayssmaller. Even hormones in your blood that control your pelvic area can makeyour neck more relaxed and it’s muscles loosened.
