I Sleep On My Stomach

    I never knew that there would be

    so many people that are into sleeping on their stomachs. Most people tell me they can't but for me since I have been losing weight, I am able to do that better, but also it's the easiest way for me to stretch my body out after work and get the kinks out of me.

    I Snore

    I have always slept on my stomach, as long as I can remember. If I sleep on my back it makes me snore. I learned that when I had some injuries on my torso from a car accident and had to sleep on my back for a few weeks. I never knew that this was unusual.

    I Actually Try Not To...

    This position is killer on my lower back, which I have problems with anyway, but sometimes this is the only way I can fall asleep. I don't know what it is, but when all else fails, I roll onto my stomach and am out like a light!

    I Sleep Like a Starfish

     On my stomach, limbs splayed out, head to the side and on the edge of the bed, pillow tossed to the side. Who knows how I'll ever get used to sharing the bed one day! ;) ~Jennie

    Seems like I've always slept on my face...er, stomach. I find I'm most comfortable that way. The only time I ever had difficulty with it was when I was heavily pregnant with my son. I didn't sleep worth a lick for the last several months because my body always kept turning me...

    Not all of the time,

    but at least three times a night I will roll over onto my belly, have one hand under holding under the navel, with one leg slight drawn up. I find it so relaxing.

    This is one of the things I missed when I was pregnant. I had the biggest belly in the world, all baby and all poked out. I would sleep with pillows between my knees and under my tummy and behind me. I looked like part of the bed. Now when I go to sleep, on the stomach. hhhmmm ok...

    I have always slept on my stomach since I was a baby.  I try to sleep on my back or my side but I just end up rolling over so that I can fall asleep.  I am just not comfortable any other way.

    This is kind of funny. I went to a catholic school (for about 3 minutes - lol) and I was told not to sleep on my stomach because it tempted the devil to defile my body. ???? Okay, well, I dare him to try.

    I sleep on my stomach because for some reason, I feel more vulnerable when I'm sleeping on my back.  I think it's a childish "If I can't see it, it can't hurt me" kind of thing, since I'm a little bit afraid of the dark. I worry that sleeping on my chest might...

    I have always slept on my stomach. Even if I fall asleep on my back I will wake up on my stomach. It's really the most comfortable way, I have bonus pillows in front and I'm easy access in the morning so what's not to like?

    Sadly sleeping on my stomach is not a choice for me. I can sort of half sleep on my side, but I sleep better on my stomach. Going to sleep on my back just makes me feel uncomfortable and vulnerable to be honest. Sleeping on my stomach means (or side) means I can snuggle under my...

    I think I started out sleeping on my side and adopted the habit of sleeping on my stomach from my father. Don't ask me how that happened but it has worked out great and I couldn't imagine trying to sleep any differently.
