Like a lot things that get me thinking, this one started with an IM:

Ryder Fakin: TGIF! - your help of the day! they must not have charted sleeping under the kitchen table!​​​channel/​​​health/​​​what-​​​does-​​​your-​​​sleep-​​​position-​​​reveal-​​​about-​​​your-​​​personality-​​​1338293/​​​

See Our Zed: The opening paragraph reveals the author's desperation to find a man

Ryder Fakin: they must not have charted waking up bent over something! her mind screams!

See Our Zed: Nobody sleeps on their elbow until it falls
asleep from nerve damage these days

Ryder Fakin: hmmm...this sounds like a 1 question. If you don't mind

The right answer obviously is that it depends on who you are sleeping with. Half these positions look like dead. That may be where that saying came from. Sleeps like a log is the only other one that applies to a common saying

I typically fall asleep in the Fetal position, but will sometimes shift, while either awake or asleep, into the Yearner or Starfish positions. My wife is the same, but instead of Starfish, she goes into Freefall.

Fun Fact: we don't have any regular sized pillows on our bed. We've got 3 body pillows. One we share for our heads and the other two are options for our respective Fetal/Yearner positions and to trick our cat into thinking he's sleeping on top of one of us (one of his most important life goals!)

I've woken up in the yearner, starfish and freefaller positions. Mainly freefaller, though if I wake up in the middle of the night it's in starfish.

I used to sleep on my back, probably in the soldier position. I've learned to switch because sleeping on my side lessens my sleep apnea. There were times when people would find me literally sleeping hunched over because I couldn't breath any other way.

Sleeping on my side, it's probably more like the log position, but I know I end up in the fetus sometimes, usually when I'm too cold.

I am one of the 10% that have to be completely covered by the blanket (in the winter; in the summer it's too hot so I switch to just being covered by a sheet).

I usually find myself in a freefaller position, or whatever fills the space allotted by our dogs.

Combo of Yearner/Freefaller, but the hitch is that I must sleep facing South. I have tested this out and I can not sleep facing any other direction.

I feel like I can't fall asleep except in the Foetus, and yet I keep waking up in the Log or Yearner.

I KNEW we'd talked about this before. Look for it on The 7 in four months...or just click here now (The W). (Observe the many, many recycled jokes AND recycled graphic!)

In fact....the Yahoo! story references the EXACT SAME LINK FROM 2003.

I don't know what's weirder - that she can get away with that, or that I can remember that we talked about this and be bothered enough to go out and find it in our database. And YOU say I don't contribute anything!

I have some neck issues, so a couple of years ago I bought an ergonomic gel pillow that's really helped out. Still, I tend to flip from side to side. I start off the foetal position but I wake up in any number of places.

A new wrinkle is that my wife is five months pregnant and when she moves in the bed, it is a big deal and usually wakes me up.

I've got a bit of a pot belly, so I can't sleep on my stomach; sleeping on my back is the only way to go for me.

I sleep on either side with my knees slightly bent, with a pillow between them. If I don't have a pillow, my back hurts the entire next day.

I don't sleep, I wait.

While waiting I typically wait in the freefaller position.

When I fall asleep it's in the soldier position, but without fail every time I wake up I'll be in that yearner or freefall position.

As I was going to sleep last night, this thread kept popping into my head. Yeah, I know - lame!

So, when on right side, yearner. When on left side, half way between yearner and free fall.

I can happily sleep on either side since I had UPPP surgery to deal with sleep apnea.

At night, the girlfriend and I will lie in bed in the spoon position until she's fast asleep - then I'll lie on right side and doze off.

This may sound dumb but when I am trying to solve a problem I essentially try to not think about it but sort of empty my mind and perform a nonthinking task. Usually that helps me have that "aha" moment.
