I’m seven months preg­nant and I’ve started snor­ing. Is this any­thing to worry about? Maria De Souza, Ban­ga­lore Snor­ing is com­mon es­pe­cially in the third trimester of preg­nancy. If it is loud and per­sis­tent, it may be a sign of sleep ap­nea, which has been as­so­ci­ated with both preg­nancy com­pli­ca­tions such as preeclamp­sia as well as foetal growth re­tar­da­tion due to the lack of oxy­gen as­so­ci­ated with it. It may be wise to con­sult a sleep spe­cial­ist.
