I know i do, in fact the last time i did it i sat bolt upright, scooted to the side of the bed, bunched the duvet around me and apparently frantically anounced i simply couldnt share my blanket or id freeze to death (i had a vague memory in the morning of dreaming about being shipwrecked in the arctic. im apparently a very selfish shipwreckee). i also kicked out at my poor fi when he tried to get a bit closer and take the duvet back. Ive also thwacked him in the past before announcing “no animals in the bed! off! off!”. Thankfully its very very rare for me to do it or id have to go to a sleep clinic, and normally i chat rather than get violent
I didnt think my fi did, until he woke me up last night looking a bit manic. “you cant close the drawer!! it has my things in it, i put your things on the floor!! dont close it” over and over (bearing in mind this is all in spanish which is his native language and not mine, so i was half asleep and finding it reallly hard to follow). Decided to give up trying to udnerstand and tried to do a soothing shhh shhhhh before rolling over and going back to sleep! i asked him what was goign on this morning, his reply (looking at me like im a loon)- “what are you talkign about baby?what drawer?” on the plus side…i now know the spanish word for drawer!
does anyone have anythign similar?!

I sleep talk A LOT! My fiancee will sometimes record what Im saying just to show me how silly it was in the morning. Most nights I have no idea that I did it but other nights I get so into it that I actually get out of bed and those are the nights I remember some of it (I pretty much wake myself up by getting out of bed). I think its funny!

i do sleep talk, my mom and my SO told me it’s some weird language they’ve never heard before. = SO used to have a lot of sleepwalking nights as a child, but doesn’t do it anymore, luckily.

I do both. I’ve yelled at fi about killing the dogs and started bawling in my sleep, and have even done laundry. Once on vacation I walked down six flights of stairs in my pajamas to call my bf at the time. The only reason I didn’t was because I woke up a friend who followed me down the stairs and brought me back.

I get most of my excercise when I’m asleep. When I was younger I gave myself a black eye and sprained my wrist in my sleep. More recently I went sleep walking and fell down a flight of stairs. Luckily I only sprained my ankle.
I toss and turn a lot and apparently I fart and then say oops in my sleep. DH finds this hilarious!

Yep, I sleep walk and talk. It was particularly bad when I was younger. One time I was looking for my mom because she was “in danger” in my dream and I went to the living room, family room and then I unlocked the back door and went to the backyard. I also used to strip my bed down and put the blankets in different rooms.
As I’ve gotten older, it hasn’t been bad unless I’m overly exhausted. One night I was apparently started screaming “Why can’t you just let me do it? I know how to do my job and this idea will work!!!” My SO couldn’t get me to wake up and I have no memory of it. I haven’t caught myself sleep-walking since we moved in together but he’s going to freak out when I do. I sleep-walk with my eyes open, so it’s difficult to tell if I’m awake or sleeping. Can’t wait for that one!

I used to sleep talk allll the time according to my college roommates, but FI says that I don’t. Once FI “slapped” me in his sleep because he dreamed I was a witch. He must have been moving or something because I opened my eyes, and his eyes were open and he gasped and then patted me on the face (it was supposed to be a slap).

@ColoradoGirl: I used to do that with my duvet! id wake up in the night feeling cold and then have to look around the house to find where id put it – normally either the kitchen or the second bedroom
i do it a lot less now (well at least sleepwalking, the talking still happens) but my parents always had a lot of success just sayign repeatedly “go to bed”. apparently id stop in my tracks and go straight there

My DH sleep talks, walks, yells, eats, drinks….you name it he does it. I recently learned his brothers (he has 2) and his sister also are quite active as well.
The worst was when he stood straight up and pointed towards the window at 3 am. He nudged me awake and said in a very frightened and hostile tone “do you see that? There! Do you see it?” My response was half crazed half teriffied asking for more details. He proceeded to point, become more upset and continued to ask me if I say it. When I said no, what is going on his final response was “Tadpoles. Bucket of tadpoles!” He then fell (more like plopped) back into bed and was sound asleep. I kid you not.

Every once in a while my husband sleep walks. I actually find it VERY creepy. He looks possessed when he does it.

Lol I have been known to talk in my sleep, DH too…it’s funny 🙂

I sleep talk, walk and grind my teeth so loudly it wakes him up. He hates it, but it really freaks him out when I walk into a room, mumble something then go back to bed. I’ve been told he’s caught me not breathing for a few seconds before, too.

Omg I only sleep mumble but these stories are absolutely cracking me up!

I guess I should share a story.
THe last time FI caught me sleepwalking was because he heard scratching coming from the wall that divides our bedroom and living room. He found me in the bedroom pawing at a painting on the wall saying something about not being able to get out of the bedroom. I was having a dream about trying to get out of the bedroom, so I am somewhat aware of what I’m doing I guess.
The best time…it’s more funny now than it was at the time. FI was coming to bed, using his cellphone as a flashlight. When he came in the room he heard me gasp, and started to come closer to me to see what was wrong. Again, I’m having a dream where I’m somewhat aware of things. I was dreaming that some demon had come into our bedroom and was coming at me with a lantern. So, the closer he got to me, I apparently threw myself up against the wall and started screaming bloody murder…it was 4am *facepalm*. He finally got me calmed down, but did not find it funny at the time.

I sleep talk, but as far as I know, I haven’t done it recently. FI thinks it’s pretty funny. I used to sleep talk a lot when I still lived at home and my sister would let me know what stupid things I said the next morning (usually had to do with school and homework). FI mumbles in his sleep sometimes from some dream, but that’s about it.
