I figured with all the TMI threads we post on this board, one more couldn’t hurt.
So, this morning I got a surprise visit from you know who, and of course now that SO and I are living together and sleeping in the same bed, I had to get it first thing in the morning, and it had to happen on my white down comforter. Yep. Luckily I noticed while SO was still asleep, and since we each use different blankets, I was able to just fold the blanket over to hide it while he got ready for work. It wasn’t a huge stain, but still big enough to freak me out. SO decided to leave for work early this morning (thank god!) so I was able to bleach most of it out after he left. After drying it with a hairdryer, it was still slightly damp, but I wanted to make the bed so he wouldn’t try to do it when he got home. I just put that blanket on the bottom and tucked it under the mattress, since it was on the edge, and cover it with two other blankets. Because of this, I was 15 minutes late for work and spent most of the morning in a frenzied panic attack. haha
Does anyone else have any “girl” related stories they’d like to share to try to calm me down? haha

@OneOfTheseDaysAlice: Oh no! I’m sorry you had to deal with that. Shark week is a major pain.
I was staying with a friend once and I had really really heavy and terrible periods back then (pre-birth control) and one night I completely bled through and didn’t even know until I woke up the next morning. It was all over the sheets and blankets (which belonged to my friend) and I was mortified. Luckily, after the went to work I was able to scrub it all out and let it dry but it was not the best thing to wake up to.

@OneOfTheseDaysAlice: oh I hear ya! When I went off the pill my periods were very heavy. I clearly didn’t realize how heavy because I put on a regular pad, went to sleep with my pillow between my legs, and woke up with a huge blood stain. I panicked cause for HATES the idea of period blood, threw away the pillow, got a new one at work and snuck ittoo the house.

@OneOfTheseDaysAlice: oy, tmi, but after a couple of those occurrences, I decided I needed to go on the Pill.
Hasn’t happened since DH moved in, but I had one close call. That was actually one reason I was NOT looking forward to DH moving in. I know he’s my husband, but there are just some things he doesn’t need to know about!

I got mine this morning too! haha I feel your pain.
FI is super comfortable with me by now, as we’ve lived together for 3 years and been together for 10… but I still try to keep my distance from him while its that time of the month because I get super gassy. lol

I was a very shy newlywed (30+ years ago), and have always been modest and slightly embarrassed by “Aunty Flow” and my relationship with her. The first Christmas after we were married my Ex-H and I went to visit his OOT family and stay at his Mom & Dad’s, who I had only met 2x before the Wedding. So we were still in the “getting to know you phase”… well the first morning I awoke to a scene much you did… and here I was in someone else’s bed, and their linens etc. I was dead humiliated.
Lol, my MIL took it all in stride… I think today, as a 50+ woman that it was no doubt because at the time, she would have been aprox my age now, and going thru “the change”… nothing makes you flip out about your period like these years… it comes and goes as it pleases without a frickin clue. Soooo many embarrassing moments.
Lol, Mother Nature is like that I suppose, she gives you 40 years to get used to idea, that she is totally in charge and can make you realize that you may as well forget about being self conscious, cause she is going to show you who’s boss when she wants to.

I’m just glad I saw it before he had a chance to. I know we’re both adults and this is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to living together, and I should just be glad I got it!

We women worry about weird stuff. I have been with DH for 2 1/2 years, married for almost 2 weeks. I have bled on a blanket and just dealt with it, but can’t fart in front of him. I fear getting pregnant and having to worry about a mess of disgusting problems lol

That is so funny! I remember one time when my DH and I had just started dating we were in his car. First let me say that his car seats are beige leather and yes I had a major accident. He had just picked me up and I had just changed my tampon not even like 15 minutes before he picked me up. We drove about 20 minutes and when I got up, it looked like a murder had taken place. I turned even more red than what I was looking at and I could not say a word. He was so sweet about it and said “dont worry love, I have a mother and two sisters. I know these things happen.” He drove me home and cleaned it while I went to change. He is the best!

UPDATE: I went back to check the stain and couldn’t even find it! It disappeared! 🙂
This was probably terrible for the fabric, but if you are ever in the same situation and you don’t have liquid bleach, I used comet powder with bleach (yep, the stuff you scrub your bathroom with) and a Magic Eraser sponge. I know it said do not use on fabric, but it was all I had. Thank god it worked.

@MrsFeatherbottom: AHAHAHAHA Shark Week! I’m stealing that if you don’t mind.
Ugh this has definitely happened to me. The first time i was horrified. The second time I didn’t notice but the FI didn’t and didn’t really care. That helps calm me down about it. I figured if he can poop without shame with the door open, I can have a leak once in a blue moon without feeling embarrassed and awful.
@OneOfTheseDaysAlice: Great cleaning tip for getting it out! Thanks!

All I ask for is this: When am I done?
I am now 47, not planning on having any other kidlets… I am going through menopause, and my flow decides to goosh out in buckets, and over the very thick pad I wear and into my jeans or whatever pants I am wearing. (I can actually feel it and it feels like I am peeing my pants but can’t control it!)
I HATE IT, please make it go away, I am done with you, you are not needed in my life anymore! I wave my magic wand…. Abracadabra! ARGH!

@OneOfTheseDaysAlice: Peroxide…. takes it out super fast, all of it 😉 And dries really fast too!
I’ve had many slip ups bc of an uncontrollable cycle. Learned the peroxide trick from my mom.
