Some people wake up in the same position they fell asleep, others fidget and toss and turn all night.

Do you move around a lot in your sleep?

I think that is something mainly kids do.
Adults seem to be a little more controlled, unless deeply troubled.
I tend to only move slightly.
What a great image, jonaj.

You haven't met my husband! He's worse than my son for wriggling.... and I don't think he's very troubled :)
by jonaja
Not really. The kids do though. If they come in to our bed I always wake up with someone's feet on top of me.
I end up being used as a pillow too :)
No, I'm a pretty still sleeper. I have a baby on one side of me, and wriggling would wake him up LOL
Oh no, don't wake the baby!
No. I was 'trained' not to.
by Vee
How? I would love to know how to train someone to sleep without wriggling!
When my dad would go off to work, my sister or I would sneak into mum's bed. She was a light sleeper so she would tell us to stop moving. It was fear inducing. I don't know why we kept going back, lol.

I am a very still sleeper - left to myself! But both my husband and son are champion sleep wrigglers, they could win gold medals for their fidgeting in their sleep! I find it extraordinary that anyone can move that much and still stay asleep but they both do it and have no recollection of it in the morning...
It makes sleeping with either of them quite a chore for me, as they wake me up with their constant moving. The cat is not quite as bad but he does join in as well sometimes........
I usually have the small toddler beside me so I tend to be fairly still. If I am in bed on my own I'll often toss and turn and stretch out a bit, but not a huge amount.
No I do not really as I am always on the same side of the queen bed despite being in it alone at night.

I sleep on my side and do change sides during the night however do not think I move about a lot in my sleep -then again, how would I know

I'm told that I don't move around a lot. When I was studying at college for the first time, the campus was very cold, and so was my bed. Whenever I went to sleep in the nights, I warmed a part of the bed and laid there. When I woke up in the mornings I was usually at the same spot.
