An awkward sleeping position can cause a rough night's sleep for many as obstructed airways create breathing problems. This is often remedied by simply changing positions; but for some, a change in position means absolutely nothing but a new way to snore, sometimes louder than before.

Admittedly, when I was heavier, I snored sometimes.  There have been times where I actually woke up and heard myself! Such instances have become less common, but I do know that a bad position (or congestion) will cause me to snore from time to time.

On the way to school this morning, I had a conversation with my nephew.  He said he doesn't know ONE grown man who doesn't snore.

As women, we like to think we're dainty and that snoring is too "harsh" for us; but the truth is that women snore, too.  I like to think that we're usually on high alert, listening for the children or other odd noises in the night. So, the sound of another person's snoring seems to be way louder... Or is it really that men just snore more and louder than women?
