    Only if toddler comes into bed. We need a king size bed.

    I haven't "kicked" OH out of bed, but more often than not, we sleep separately. At the moment, he's been co-sleeping with DS1 in his room, so I can actually get some sleep now I'm in 3rd trimester and exhausted. The plan is he'll keep this up so we have one child each to tend to in the night once the new bub arrives. How this works in reality...we'll see.

    I had sleep issues for years before kids, so quite like having my own sleep space. Sleeping in the same bed is overrated imo, unless you have a king size bed.

    We have never kicked each other out but we have gone through patches where we have all gotten more/better sleep by sleeping in different places, this might of been different rooms but mostly in these circumstances we have had either 2 queen bads next to each other or a queen and a king. As my boys have gotten older we have moved back to sleeping in the same bed (not co sleeping with different children apart) but there have always been nights when one of us would keep the other awake with snooring (him mainly) or pregnancy related issues (me obviously lol). I suffer from insomnia a lot now so I do venture out onto the couch or I just get up as to not wake him with my tossing and turning. I don't understand why anyone would sacrifice good quality sleep for a principle...sleeping in different places has never affected our relationship.

    We've slept separately a lot since the kids. I kicked him out when pregnant with DD as it wasn't an easy pregnancy, and I developed a very sensitive sense of smell and couldn't cope with his (natural and clean) body odour.

    I also had to co-sleep with DD for about 8 months when she was 9 months old as she wouldn't go to sleep unless I was there and sitting by her cot and trying to creep out when she was asleep didn't work. Was easier to do that than be up and down all night. Got her sleeping through quicker than that, but we moved house and she regressed so I was back to being in the spare room with her!

    I also have periods of insomnia so I leave then for however long it takes for me to sleep properly again. Sometimes it's a fortnight, sometimes it's 3 months.

    DH hates that I leave, but I can't stand lying there listening to him snore when I can't sleep. And my tossing and turning wakes him up as well. Much better to go and we both get more sleep that way. I have also left a couple of times when I've been that mad with him I don't want to be near him!

    We bicker often @lolly007 but rarely have a big fight. Dh often annoys me. Haha. Its normal to me as my parents are the same. We are different people so won't always agree.
