    I Do

    Most of the time I sleep with my legs wrapped around a pillow. I wish my guy was here so i could wrap my leg over him.

    Yup.

    I have to sleep with one if I lay on my side, or my back and my hips will hurt the next day. Plus, it keeps my knees from touching because I dont' like that.

    Every Night

    Unless I am traveling and even then I ask the hotel for extra pillows to put between my legs. I just love it.

    It keeps my thighs apart so I do not wake up with thighs so wet from sweating you qould think I pissed on myself in my sleep.

    Or Else

    I wake up in pain. I don't know why, but if I sleep on my side without my pillow my knees and/or my hips hurt when I get up in the morning. :(

    Well, When I Am In Shape.

    When I am at my racing weight, which I have not seen since March, I sleep with a pillow between my legs because if not, my knees are so boney that they hurt each and bruise each other.  When I pack on the pounds, it is not so bad.    PS - on my way back to...

    Knees

    I sleep with a pillow to stop my boney knees knocking together and waking me up. It also helps keep the perspiration down when my thighs are together.

    Me Too!

    My knees are bony enough that when I sleep on my side, they hurt after awhile, so I use a pillow. I think it wakes me up more in the night when I turn over b/c I have to grab the pillow and set it right?

    Bony Knees

    I've been sleeping with a pillow between my legs for years now. I have always slept on my side, so the pillow stops my bony knees digging into one another. I also seem to get a better night's sleep when I use it. On the odd occasion I don't use it, I wake, tossing and turning.

    I Thought I Was Weird

    but I am so happy I found out that other's share my weirdness. It aligns my spine and I sleep more soundly especially when I am travelling, staying in hotels.  The sheets have to be immaculate however.

    It's A Must

    I must have the boniest knees in the world .No one else has ever complained but trying to sleep on my side without a pillow I might as well stay up.

    I Do

    I can't deal with my knees touching one another while I'm trying to sleep. The only way to keep that from happening is a pillow.

    Shameful maybe? Or sad? But sometimes you need something to hold and cuddle with at night.
