I Sleep With a Pillow Between My Legs

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 116 People

    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...

    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.

    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.

    Yes I Do.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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. :(
