Which side of the bed?

post #1 of 52
Thread Starter 
So I just thought it'd be a fun lighthearted poll with all the "deep" posts lately.
So, which side of the bed do you sleep on, left or right?

I actually try to sleep on the left side of the bed, but the correct answer is I sleep on whatever part of the bed the cats leave open for me. So I chose 'middle.'

Me too. I usually start out with just Miss Patchwillow and end up with the other five crowding me out. They crowd Miss Patchwillow out too. I think she goes to sleep in the carrier under the piano.

I sleep in the middle and just roll over when I want to change positions.

well, I sleep on the side of the bed closest to the door, and right now, that is the right side!

I picked Left, but its not that simple.

It depends if hubby is home or not. If not home, I sleep in the middle or diagnally across the bed. If he is home, I'm on the left but usually move over to take up as much as I can

I'm a bed hog.

Another reason I said middle is that I've never figured out which side is left and which is right. Do you decide by lying in bed on your back, or on your stomach? Or standing at the foot of the bed looking at it?

Left if my hsband is in the bed.
Otherwise anywhere in the bed.

In my bed I sleep diagonally in the middle. When I stay with my b/f at his house, I get the left side (aka whatever he leaves me).

Left for me. Not sure why, it's just where I've always ended up sleeping. I do tend to migrate to the middle if DH isn't home, though.

I sleep on the left side of the bed, Eric sleeps on the right. Then when he gets up to go to work I take over the middle We have a full size bed so spece is liminted with the 4 of us (Flower, Figaro, Eric, and I) The cats usually sleep on me unless its really cold then they sleep inbetween us takeing up most of the bed

I went with the side that I'm laying on when I'm laying in bed on my back & that is the right side. I have cat beds on the left side of the bed to keep them somewhat contained.

I have a twin... so the answer is 'yes'.
post #16 of 52
My bed is so small that there are no "sides".
post #17 of 52
I voted how it when I stand at the foot of my bed and look down.

I sleep on the left side closest to the door while Kieran has the side closest to the kitty litter tray!

From the perspective of laying in the bed, I lay on the right and my husband lays on the left. When our son was born 10 years ago we tried to switch b/c the bassinet would only fit on hubby's side, and we switched back a week later. lol

I wonder why so many of us are on the left?

If DH isn't home or in bed, like many other's I'll sort of gravitate towards the middle. A couple years ago I had went to bed early and DH came in later - I was asleep mostly on the right so he didn't move me thinking it kinder to leave me where I was. Not being used to that, sometime early in the morning I tried to roll to my right... with the expected consequences. Too bad there was a night stand in the way for me to hit my head on, it made for a very rude awakening.

Normally I pick the left because I sleep on my left side. For some reason this is more comfortable to me because laying on my back or right side for extended periods makes me sick - nauseous with GERD symptoms. I stumped a doc with that one.

My husband's snoring cut down dramatically after we bought a new bed! It's not a complete solution but it may help. I also no longer wake up from back pain.

Maybe if he's quieter she'll sleep in the bed too? All of our cats sleep with us, so maybe I should have choose middle as they typically crowd me in.
post #24 of 52
Yeah maybe! They always used to sleep with us,but now they sleep on the sofa with me! And as daft as i am,im always sacred to move to get comfy incase i disturb them! The sofa isn't that big!!

except not i sleep on the side furthest from the windows & closest to the doorway. currently, that's the left if i'm lying on my back.
before i moved the bed to this wall, i was sleeping on the right [still furthest from the windows & closest to the door, tho]. i moved it so that if i'm having a migraine [which usually hurt my left temple] i can lie on that side & i'm turned away from the windows.
i've got some light-blocking shades to put up on the windows to replace the mini-blinds that the cats have destroyed.

Well i'm going by sides when you are looking at the bed from the foot. It is generally on the left. But i moved my bed a couple of days ago and now i'm on the right (which is good because it takes alot of effort to turn the mattress around which i really should be doing every once in a while). When i'm at Tristans it's generally on the left because he has HIS favourite side but if my leg hurts and i don't want to be squished into the corner i make HIM sleep on the right His room doesn't have enough room to have access to both sides of the bed as he has his HUUGE desk with all his computer stuff on it and it can't be moved. Oh and if Charlie sleeps with me then it's usually on the diagonal lol


I really can't wait till we own our own house.

I sleep on the left when I'm laying on the bed. If I were at the foot of the bed looking at it, it'd be the right.

Not sure how it worked out, but DH and I already had favorite sides and lucky for us, they were the opposite.
post #28 of 52
if my b/f is in the bed I sleep on the right, if he's not, which is the case most times I'm in the middle
post #29 of 52
From the laying down point of view, I'm on the right. From standing at the foot of the bed; I'm on the left.

I grew up with a full size bed and I slept diagonally on it; and that is what DH and I first had when we got married. It took me quite a while to get used to sleeping straight on the bed. Getting a queen size bed after a while deffinately helped!!

I fall asleep on the left side, but usually end up in the middle
