I sleep in the same bed as my husband and sleep great. He snores loudly but I can literally sleep through anything, anywhere, anytime. I sleep a solid 7-8 hours most nights. The flip side of that is that I have slept through fire alarms and screaming babies. My son and husband know they have to literally shake me to wake me up for emergencies.

I'm a very finicky sleeper and usually average about 5 or 6 hours a night. I'm also a night owl with a usual bed time between 3am and 4am. My husband is an early riser and up between 5am and 6am. We usually average sleeping together about 2 hours a night. It can be a zoo. Sometimes the cat is up there and ever since our other precious boy left us, the Yorkie refuses to sleep alone. He's with me on the couch until I carry him up to bed. The cat stays with me and is up with John sometimes. I really don't like the animals in our bed, but, what are you going to do. The Yorkie slept in a bed under the covers with our other dog for five years. John and I have slept together for 33 years. It's all in what you get used to. I don't like sleeping alone. Evidently neither does Joe Joe Nightmare.

My husband sleeps with a face mask on and ear plugs.

My bedroom is a cave and my bed is my sanctuary. We sleep 8-10 hours a night.


Perfect!!!

We have some weird mattress DH's chiropractor said would be good for him. When DH moves, I feel it. It's not a water bed, but it can make me a little seasick. DH moves around a lot at first, so I give him a couple hours to get to his deeper, stiller sleep before I go to bed. That works out fine. I can get into bed without disturbing him, and once I am sleeping, I am not disturbed by a bit of movement. (If he starts flapping the covers, though, . . . )

I did sleep better when I was single and sleeping alone on a normal mattress.

King sized Tempurpedic mattress, the best! You don't feel the other moving around and it feels like you are sleeping on a cloud... soft.
When we go to bed, we have the TV on and set the timer so it shuts off after an hour. Hubby falls asleep instantly, I take about 10-15 minutes.

He snores quite loudly at times, but when I give him a tap, he rolls over and is quiet.
We have 2 toy sized dogs who like to snuggle with husband or me, depending on who they choose during the night.

I sleep very well until I have a hot flash. I usually have two/nightly. Sometimes they are mild and sometimes they are brutal... my scalp is drenched, my face is dripping and my chest is soaked. NOT FUN. Most times I get up, use the toilet, climb back into bed and turn on the fan on the small table beside me and HOPE to go back to sleep. (and I take a mild estrogen supplement) Without it, I'd be twice as bad. I know because I've tried to wean myself off of it. No can do.

The last two nights I was up at 3:30 am making coffee. Went back to bed at 6 and slept until 8. Menopause sucks!

If I didn't have to work, I probably wouldn't get out of my bed! That dark brown wall paint will do wonders for your sleeping.

My husband does that knee jerk thing as he's falling asleep. It doesn't wake him up, but if he's snuggled up right behind me, it feels like he's kicking me in the butt. The knee that does it is the one he's dislocated a couple of times.

I had a couple "jerks" last night and they were before I feel asleep I think. Did your husband go thru some surgeries, I believe these are from nerve damages.

Almost everyone experience hypnic jerks at one time or another. I have them.

Almost Everyone? I never had them until the surgery work in the last 7 yrs and I'll go back to hip replacement and then the subsequent other types and nerve damage that has followed.
