    So I have looked at 3 posts with mattresses and I am still confused. I am ready to put down some money on a bed right now. I have had the Kingsdown and loved it but I want to be sure it is the best bed for my current situation. My neck and back always hurt, but I think that is due to my stress level and that all of my stress goes to my upper back. My lower back and upper back are a mess and even more so after my car accident in which a teenager ran a red light and hit me. So anywhos, I want a bed that really helps my back, does not make noise (we have two 7 year olds..and crap one just walked down the stairs!! at 1:07 am..yikes...he's back upstairs saying he's going to throw up ok...his dad is helping him right now and he's better) while we have relations in the afternoon while kids are downstairs. I also do not want to feel my fi get up or move while I am trying to sleep. When I became a mother I entered the very light sleeper world and can hear my kid fart in her room while I am sleeping....no lie. So far I have read the Tempurpedic, the W's heavenly bed and another latex memory foam bed. Help...I want to sleep...well.

      We were having the same problem,every morning our backs and necks hurt, we weren't sleeping this was like 6 months or more. We just got a Select Comfort 2 months ago, we love it and have never slept better!

        That sounds great if you can sleep now. I'll look into it. Thanks!

          only thing i can suggest is go round the stores and lie on them. I bought a memory foam one,a good make, and i've ended up at an osteopath its killed me.

          I've gone back to a knackered one just until we can afford to get another new one!

              I'm not guessing it does. 4 years ago my ex & I purchased a Kingsdown and loved it, in fact I called the cops on him when I came home during my lunch break to find he was going to move it and the leather sleighbed out of the house. I thought I had won the battle until I came home later that day and found that the sneaky bastard had come back and removed it! I'm still bitter about that. So, while I love the Kingsdown I want to see if people with my situation have had any luck finding a good mattress. I've not found any affordable options

                Thanks ladies for the suggestions. I did a test lay (hehe) in several stores today and chose an awesome mattress. I finally landed in Sleepy's where they do a Kindgsdown body diagnostics which takes information about your size, weight and body ache issues and then processes the information to determine your mattress type. Supposedly this is based on some scientific googlemuck which I think is a great gimmick. I will say that the bed that was recommended was definitely my match...ahh...if only dating had been this easy! I chose the bodysystems green mattress, which is a mattress with medium firmness/softness that has individually wrapped coils with a lifetime warranty. So, I figured I will never need to buy another mattress again..yay! Ladies, this is the most comfortable mattress every.

                I tried the Tempurpedic medium firmness with the adjustable frame, but it was even more expensive than the one I purchased. It was comfortable, but I would have to buy the adjustable frame feature to reduce pressure points in my hips and back. I also tried a Simmons bed and a Select Bed again.

                So to you ladies. I can't wait to sleep on it Thursday night
