    Default Do you sleep touching/close to DP, or seperate?

    Completely random question for the start of the week

    A lady I work with told me EVERY night she sleeps with her husband spooning her from behind with his arm wrapped around her...the thought of that makes me cringe!

    DH and I love each other to bits,and we will hold hands/cuddle for a bit while we first get into bed, but once it's time for sleep we are on absolute separate sides of the bed, I can't sleep if even his toe accidentally touches my leg LOL

    So what does everyone else do??

    Totally separately! We both face out so our backs are to each other. I'm the same - cant stand touching while I'm trying to sleep! I guess it's ok when we first get into bed and once we wake up

    Separately. I am so uncomfortable at the moment and toss and turn heaps. We have cuddles when we get into bed though or every morning before he goes to work or is just getting home from work.

    We usually fall asleep spooning and wake up on other sides of the bed. Well - I fall asleep with her spooning me, then she moves once I'm asleep or something

    NO TOUCHING! We sometimes hold hands but only for a minute or two and then we keep to ourselves.

    my usual sleep position under DH's arm hugging his chest. He usually rubs my back to sleep.... While also somehow taking up all of my side. I leave him with about 5cm of bed. At times he has gotten out of bed, moved me over and got back in. He hates how i sleep.
    Now im pregnant and sleep with a million pillows around me im totally all on my side as the pillows stop me getting close to him.
    Im actually quite happy not to be touched now im big and pregnant haha

    Me and dh fall asleep cuddling all the time and on and off during the night. We both toss and turn so there's not always cuddling. In summer dh won't be close to me he has real heat issues lol but when it's cooler it's all cuddles
