We have 2 cats who are indoors only who sleep on our bed... By that I mean, IN our bed! They don't smell bad- someone else said earlier that their cat smelt like perfume and I agree- my cats smell is so addictive, I just love smooshing my face into their fur and inhaling! (Yes, my DH thinks I am mental!)
We do lock them out of the bedroom at night because they are way too active at about 2am but I guess with our first bub on the way, I may get used to getting up then anyway so maybe I'll let them back in the bedroom at night.
As far as the bubs room goes, we won't allow the cats in there until bub is old enough to be able to push them away if they get in bed with him and he needs more space.
We also have a dog- he is not allowed in the bedrooms but he does sleep in the loungeroom (on his own bed.)
I personally think that sharing a bed with a cat is one of life's greatest pleasures.
And I will continue to do so despite my MILs insistance that the cats will deliberately try to smother the baby. Haha, ok, my cats are way smarter than the average human being, but a deliberate murder plot against my child? Maybe not!

All of my cats have slept on my bed, i hadnt even considered that other people may find it 'weird'!
My current cat is the first one to snuggle under the covers, she gently wakes me so i can lift the covers for her to curl up under. While being pregnant she hasnt come under the covers too much - i think its too hot sleeping next to me. When she does her purring excites the baby. They have already bonded and i hope when bub arrives that their bond will continue.
P.S cats rule!

When my DP and i moved in together years ago, I brought my burmese cat. He had never had a cat before and said he's ok as long as he doesn't get on the bed. I said no worries with a knowing smile. Within 1 month mr whiskers had DP wrapped around his little paw and DP (who goes to bed earlier than me) was tucking him in next to him saying "he's cold!".
When our cat was an only pet, he would always sleep on our bed, sometimes in our bed cuddled between us if was cold. I guess it could be unhygienic, but he's indoors and gets washed regularly (he's a strange water lover) so never smelly. I love the smell of him actually, his fur is all velvety. He cuddles up to us like a teddy bear and is so sweet and purry. Quite often DP will fall asleep on the ottoman on the couch with a blanky over him and the cat curled up under he blanket.
Each to their own. Ours usually sleeps with the new kitten now, but he will still on occasion snuggle up on the end of our bed. I don't think its weird

Our cats sleep with us and our kids. Often over breakfast the kids discus who got to sleep with what cat. It's quite on honour to be chosen by a cat here lol.
A bit of cat stealing goes on too. My husband has been known to go in and pinch his boy cat off one of the kiddos and bring him to bed.

I've never met a cat that doesn't sleep anywhere it darn well likes, beds included..
Both of my cats sleep on mine or the kids beds.

My gorgeous boy is currently curled up next to me and almost has his head on my pillow
I've always had cats and they have always slept on our beds. I don't think it's gross at all. They have never been smelly and are always lovely and soft as they are extremely well loved and cared for
Must admit though, when I first got my dog and cat back from XH after not seeing them for six months they were both in pretty poor condition. My cat didn't want to be around anyone and it took a week or two for him to come and sleep on my bed again. During that time he'd been well fed with good food so his coat was glossy and soft again
