my husband sleeps too much

MY HUSBAND WORKS FROM 3PM-10PM 4TO 5 DAYS A WEEK. HE GOES OUT AFTER WORK AND COMES HOME AT 3AM AND GOES TO BED. HE SLEEPS FROM 3AM UNTIL 2:30PM ON HIS WORK DAYS. WHEN HE ISN'T WORKING HE SLEEPS FROM 3AM THE NIGHT BEFORE UNTIL 5 OR 6 AT NIGHT. THERE HAVE BEEN TIMES THAT HE'LL SLEEP FROM 3AM THE DAY BEFORE UNTIL 9 OR 10 AT NIGHT.I'M VERY CONCERNED BECAUSE HE STILL WAKES UP TIRED AND IS ONLY WAKING UP BECAUSE OF MY NAGGING. THIS OVERSLEEPING IS INTERFERING WITH HIS EVERYDAY LIFE. WE HAVE 2 CHILDREN  AND ANOTHER ONE ON THE WAY AND HE'S TOO TIRED TO SPEND ANY TIME WITH ANY OF US.WHAT CAN WE DO TO REMEDY THIS SITUATION? DOES HE HAVE A SLEEP DISORDER OF SOME KIND?

This happens to me, and I found out that it is sleep apnea -- when your heart stops beating for only a few seconds or so in your sleep.
I didnt notice it until I woke up gasping for breath.
I sleep all the time, and I never feel rested.
I'm making an appointment to get evaluated at a sleep clinic -- your husband should do so as well.
There are meds for this.
