I voted both but really wanted to say a hammock.
I really want to sleep in a hammock (or not)

I can't lie on my stomach for very long without getting a crick in my neck. Do I have a freakishly inflexible neck or something? I don't get it!

I lie on my sides, but I must, MUST, have a pillow between my knees. I really want one of those body pillow things!

I usually wad up some blanket and shove it between my knees, otherwise it hurts my back and my skinny little knobby knees rub against each other in an unpleasant way.

And then he rolls away, taking the blanket with him and laughing a creepy little sleep-laugh. (Well, he only did that once, but it was a weird thing to wake up to in the night).


I do this (the rolling, blanket stealing and creepy laughing thing). I make no apologies on behalf of my kind.

Stomach, and occasionally side to side. For a while I couldn't sleep on my stomach, so I tried sleeping on my back only.... I don't know how people do it- it takes discipline.

I switch between my sides. I can't sleep on my back, it is hard on my lower back. It feels like it's pulling apart! I wish I could sleep on my back because it seems like it would be most comfortable.

Left side mainly, or back. Sometimes I'll just about roll over to my right side, but then I remember if I do it bumps my piercing which is still healing and then will act up for the next day or two so I try to stay off of that side...

I prefer to fall asleep on my stomach, although I move around during the night. I usually wake up on my left side, sporking with my partner.

I am and always was a back sleeper! Anyone who has seen me sleep gets scared bc I sleep on my back, with my hands on my stomach like a freaking corpse, and I DO NOT move at all (except the 4-5 times a night I get up to pee and then return to corpse pose). To this day, when I go to my parent's house-home, my mom comes in a few times in the morning to make sure I am breathing bc "it scares" her, she says. Haha.

I sleep in a starfish pose. I basically try and take up as much of the bed as I can.

Both sides. I usually start off on my left side and then switch to the right just as I'm falling asleep. I'm usually a sound sleeper, but I've been really restless the last few months; I think I need a new mattress. No, I know I need a new mattress. $$$

On my right side or my back. NEVER on my stomach. I used to, but it screwed up my back and once I broke myself of the habit, now I can't do it.

On my sides while I am pregnant, but I cannot WAIT to be able to sleep on my stomach again! My hips and shoulders and ears are so sore!

By "all", I mean every position except my head. I shift positions like crazy.

I usually sleep on my right side, and shift sometimes in the middle of the night when that side goes tingly and numb. I don't really like sleeping on my left side though because then my back faces the edge of the bed and for some reason, that makes me really uncomfortable. I've also taken to sleeping on my right side, huddled near the edge because my partner has this annoying habit of stretching his arms out in his sleep (like he's doing calisthenics) and hitting me in the face. Fun times!

I said all, but I actually never sleep on my head. I sleep in all different positions, one pillow, in the regular pillow spot, whatever feels comfortable at the time. I sometimes have this pain in my shoulders/chest, so it's usually whichever way doesn't hurt.

I always start out sleeping on my right side, sporking my husband. After I fall asleep I will change sides frequently but my husband and I continue to spoon. Only if it's really hot do we ever sleep apart. I hate being away from him and having to sleep alone.

I voted both sides, but sometimes I do stomach or back as well. Mostly sides, curled up. As long as my ears are covered by my blankets, I'm fine (to stop bugs from crawling in!)

I have to do the same thing! Even in the middle of summer when it's 45 degrees and I have to drag the mattress under the airconditioner to be able to sleep, I still need a sheet so I can cover my ears.

And it's odd to see how many people sleep on their stomachs. I've never been able to do it (mainly due to my sweet cans getting in the way), so it's a foreign concept to me.

I said all, but the majority is really embarrassing. Mostly I think I sleep like a child from a 1920s/30s book, with my hands together like a praying pose under my cheek. I don't know why I do this. Flatmates have teased.

I start out in any of a number of positions but can only fall asleep if I'm on my left side.

I said all as I tend to thrash about and switch it up 20 times a night. I am also champion at chucking the duvet across the room in the middle of the night. Just as well I don't share my bed with anyone, I guess! Though I tend to start off on my right side.


I've calmed a bit since getting used (a three year process) to sleeping with my partner, but I am the WORST person to sleep with in the world.

Also I mutter, sigh, chatter my teeth and elbow.

I love to start stretched out on my stomach wiggling my toes. Then, the rest of the night it's back and forth--curled up on the left, then the right. Wanna go to bed now.

I start on my stomach, but make a full circle a few times before I actually fall asleep. So I suppose I ought to have picked "all" instead of "stomach".
