So I slept over my SO’s house (he lives at home but his parents are away this week) last night, and he reminded me (again) last night that I’m a bed hog. He wasn’t angry, just a matter of fact thing, but that we’d work it out haha.
I don’t want to be, I want to stop hogging, but I’ve slept a long time by myself, so it’s hard to adjust :o)
Any creative solutions for others who are either the bed hog, or who sleep with one?

A bigger bed. After 4 years of fighting it we’re giving in and buying a bigger bed because I’m such a bed hog.

I think you’ll just learn not to be a bed hog once sharing a bet becomes more routine. That’s how it was for us.

Just bought a king bed and it was the best thing that has ever happened to us. Ya know besides the marriage, kids, etc. LOL

SO is about 60 lbs heavier then me… its doesn’t matter what we do I roll into him at night. We will be buying a king size that is split into two tiwns when we have more room, thats the only solution.
Shoving a pillow between you will help a bit as well.

I’m a HUGE bed hog and it got so bad to where my FI was like hanging off the side of the bed in the middle of the night. We fixed that issue by upgrading from a Queen size bed to a King & it’s been amazing! 🙂

I am bed hog as well and we sleep on a queen. To be honest we just learned to adapt to each other’s sleeping styles after six years so it hasn’t been an issue. I have been told a king sized bed would be amazing but I like being close. 🙂

I’m a horrible bed hog so we bought a king size bed. I’m still hogging the bed. lol He’s slowly just learning to deal with it or wakes me up and tells me to roll over. 🙂

I am in heaven when we stay somewhere with a king! I love to sprawl, and my hubby is in denial that he takes up oodles of room, so I normally end up hugging the edge of our queen. 🙁 I can’t wait until we have a bigger bedroom! It doesn’t help that I got used to sleeping in the middle of our (my) queen when I lived alone. 🙂

Get separate blankets!!! DH and I have a king bed but we have two of the same full-size comforters. We never have to worry about stealing the covers and we always end up on own sides because we don’t have anything pulling us together. When we want to cuddle, we just overlap them.
BEST IDEA EVER!!!

I’m a bed hog, and a blanket hog. Poor Mr. Dragon ends up on the corner of the bed clinging onto a tiny corner of the duvet most nights!
Here’s what works for us — he moves me, if I’m seriously bothering him. I whine, but I’m half asleep and usually don’t remember. We use seperate blankets, with a shared one on top if it’s cold. And, although we’re doing okay in a queen-sized bed, we are DEFINITELY getting a king next time around! If one edge of the bed is up against the wall I take that side so there’s a 50% chance I’ll roll towards the wall and not Mr. Dragon.
I don’t think you can train yourself out of it, honestly. I’ve always been a bed/blanket hog (just ask my sister). You just have to be willing to be woken up and told to shove over sometimes. 🙂

Thanks everyone! Good suggestions! Luckily I requested a king size bed for our cruise in May, so we’ll see how that makes a difference!
