I Sleep With a Pillow Between My Legs

    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?

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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. :(

    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.

    It's mostly about the quiet noise that slightly blocks out anything going on ( I'm a light sleeper )

    It kinda sucks that I am a light sleeper. I feel like if I don't get enough rest, I appear to have even darker under eye circles and get the most massive headache.
