I spent over 20 years in the Midwest and have spent the last 20 years in California. I agree that 'gotten' is an awkward word, but correct in American English. I usually avoid using it and would phrase a sentence differently in order to avoid it. One instance I would use it though would be 'I've gotten many compliments on my shoes", but even that could be changed to 'received' or 'been given'. When it comes to discussing 'getting out of bed', I'd often used a different tense or ask a different question to avoid it. "Did you ever end up getting out of bed??". I mean, really, if you are having to ask, why not give them a hard time about it!
If I was surprised to see Morgan out of bed early in the morning I might say "Morgan, have you got up already?!" If I was on the phone talking to Morgan and I couldn't tell whether he was lying in bed I would ask "Morgan have you got up yet?" I'm British, it's possible that in other parts of the world the usage might be slightly different.
