I fall asleep on my side, usually the right side but not always, and I wake up on my back always. Obviously I must move around in my sleep. I've never had a partner complain about it so it must not be that much.

I'm just wondering if I am weird for it or not. Like do most people do it? I dunno how most people sleep, I never ask. I had a friend once that always fell asleep on her stomach. I don't know how people do it, if I try my neck does all kinds of horrible things.

Usually I do but somehow I will get into a pattern where I will rotate the blankets 90 degrees neatly during the night. I manage to do it without waking up my partner either

It's normal to move around a little. If you didn't, your limbs could go numb or whatever you're laying on could hurt.

Since my bed stopped being in a corner, I also rotate my bedding, which has been mystifying to me. Sometime I should set up a camera and see how I manage to spin my duvet like a pizza while snoring

Hell no lol.

I always like to fall asleep on my back with a ton of pillows and I always wake up on my side or stomach with my neck is a weird angle that hurts.

Sweet, Salty Goodness.

That depends on how long the cat is sleeping between my knees.

If you have to cough to get up because laying on your side has your maw dripping fluid or standing up brings your pressure to zero so back to the ground to wake up in a shocking situation.

Only to realize it may have been all in your head and have to do it again.

And then something snaps. You wake up in a cold sweat and realized you may have left the thermostat on too high a temperature.

I toss and turn all night but there is a chance I could wake up in the same position. Just not likely

I go to sleep on my stomach with my head facing the left and wake up on my left side facing the opposite way. No idea how I maneuver like that without waking up.

Yes. Side/stomach sleeper.

Weighted blankets kick rear end.

Iím a side/stomach sleeper as well but I never stay on one side. I move back and forth at least 10 times a night so who knows which one I started on and ended on.

Youíre not weird, OP. Same thing happens to me. Always fall asleep on my side, doesnít matter which side, and I wake up on my back like I fell asleep that way. Itís rare that I will wake up still on my side.

Sometimes if Iím feeling like I need a little more sleep after waking up in the morning, Iíll flip over and fall back asleep peacefully on my stomach and wake up in the same position. I guess for me to stay completely still while asleep I need to be a stomach sleeper, but my neck would probably kill me if I got a full nightís sleep like that.

I must not move around a lot in my sleep, though because my cats will (most of the time) still be sleeping peacefully with me :3:

My blood sugar is gon' be like


I keep waking up covered in blood, not my own, in the forest.

But I usually wake up on my back which is the position I went to sleep in

So to answer your question, sure yes

Never. I spin cycle all night and occasionally strip in my sleep.

I probably end up in the same position I fell asleep in accidentally by the time I'm spinning or contorting for the 30th time mid sleep. As for how I wake up, usually in a position looking like I came out of the amigara fault.

if you sleep in a casket you don't ever need to worry about waking up in a different county you went to bed in

I lay trapped within a creation of my own madness, an enclosed mechanical box, that whenever I wake up from restless sleep has once again shrunk by another fraction of an inch. The purpose of my creation is as clear to me as I assume it is confounding to you. But to your question, yes until either my lungs or skull give in.

Yeah the medication i'm on makes me sleep like a log and if i don't position myself very carefully before i go to sleep i wake up absolutely hosed up in the neck

When I lived alone, I would sometimes wake up to find myself wearing more/less/different clothes than I had on when I went to bed. Don't recall being in a different position though...

If there is nothing left but a constant drumming in your ears you can't focus you black out.

I kick in my sleep. Once I kicked a lamp and a stack of books off my night stand, it was a surprise in the morning

I call it Rotisserie Sleeping. I'll start on my left side, then stomach, then right side, then back. Rinse and repeat, spinning over and over through the night. I don't really wake up, but I'm kind of aware that I'm shuffling around. Where I finally land when I get up in the morning is anyone's guess.

Yes. I go to bed as CEO and when I awake I still have this position.

To be honest OP, I doubt the Board would fire me while I was sleeping.

I'm pretty sure I hover above my bed while I sleep and fall when I wake up. It's more of a pain in the rear end than it is spooky or mysterious.

Jul 19, 2004

Who the hell does. What a weird question op.

If anyone sleeps without moving in their sleep they are the anomaly.

My wife usually falls asleep in the missionary position. Don't know the position she wakes up in because i sleep in the outhouse

I make my bed every day and and sleep on the same side most of the time, and it's a little disconcerting to wake up and find that aside from where I've been laying down the bed is still otherwise perfectly made. I am deeply mentally ill, though, so my body loves being unconscious.
