    I don't know what is was. [​IMG] It was long and skinny, and at first I thought it was the new baby daschaund we have, but she was in the garage. To me it looked like a ferret, but I had my glasses off and it was dark. All I know is I screamed bloody murder for my husband to help me, and I grabbed my baby girl and told her to get out of bed.

    My husband came running and we searched the bed and room and found nothing. My husband thinks I was dreaming. I was dreaming before I felt that thing touch me, and shot up out of my sleep.
    I am so scared now and I can't go back to bed.

    That sounds scary. Do you have a nightlight you can put on? Maybe that will help keep it out? Whatever it was...

    I feel better now that I have switched rooms. I am in the living room and my baby girl is on the couch sleeping. I just wish I got a better look at it. Part of the fear of this is the fact that I don't know exactly what it was. I am also thinking it could have been a snake. I need to stop thinking. [​IMG]

    ugh. one time my husband was sleeping on the couch, and a chipmunk decided to wander all over him. DH woke up as it climbed up his face. gross. I totally believe you, likely though, you scared the crap out of it... did you check the sheets for crap? i doubt it will want to be anywhere near that giant, screaming lady ever again!

    Hahahaha!!! I just had the same thing happen to me! I had the window open one night, and In the middle of the night I woke up, and found this fluffy thing in my bed. At that point I was so tired that I just fell asleep! [​IMG] In the morning the fluffy blob was gone.
    Don't be afraid! It probably wasn't anything! (Later I found out it was my neighbors fat cat.)

    I woke up with a dead mouse stuck to the back of my nightshirt once! I never could wear that nightshirt again. (My guess is that the cat brought me a gift. She used to deposit them on the rug, but I must not have woken up enough to praise her.)

    Have found snakeSKINS inside a house we owned. Not once. Not twice. Three times. The first time I started packing to move. THen I realized I could pick up something I was packing and find the actual snake! I also figured it lived up under the bathroom and would climb up under the tub to get mice. IN the winter, we could occasionally hear a mouse there (seeking warmth, I'm sure). Then, he came in at some point to shed and then went ??? probably out wherever the mice came in.

    If I'd woken up with it in bed with me, well, someone would have been planting flowers on my grave...

    Nothing furry, but one night I kept feeling something crawling on me. All over me, up and down my legs up to my chest, I mean everywhere (but I didn't feel it on my face, thankfully) It really didn't wake me up fully though, I thought hairs were tickling me or something.
    I got out of the covers and it quit though, again, probably just hairs in the blanket since I shed plenty of long hairs and sometimes find them tickling me in my clothes.....
    but I got cold and went back under the covers later and didn't feel any more tickling.

    When I woke up I found a dead roach under my covers! With some of the legs broken off nonetheless! I assume I probably squished it when I was on TOP of the covers, which is why I never felt it anymore when I went back under. Can you say GROSS????????? [​IMG]

    It was one of the giant water bug type roaches (palmetto bugs) they don't usually infest your house, and we don't generally have a problem with them, but apparently this one found it's way inside. Could have been on the sheets or something since we hang them out. Ick ick ick anyway!!! [​IMG] Took several days for me to stop "feeling" it crawling on me when I was trying to drift off to sleep!!!!!!!!! [​IMG]
