I'm just curious, really! grin

Giraffeski Wed 06-Aug-14 08:42:46

fearful Slightly apprehensive?

penguinplease Wed 06-Aug-14 08:44:24

Not sure he even realises and if he does then he doesn't care!

bouncinbean Wed 06-Aug-14 08:45:31

Same as the rest of the time... Maybe slightly more patient as I do grumble a lot and insist on chocolate after each meal!

Spinaroo Wed 06-Aug-14 08:46:24

As always- unless I lay it on a bit to have neurofen, tea and biscuits brought to me grin]

Less affectionate because he knows I prefer not to have sex when I have my period. But also relieved because I am over my pmt week when I can be a bit of a cow.

Letthemtalk Wed 06-Aug-14 08:50:01

No differently to when I don't have it. The week before my period however he is the most aggravating man on the planet and can do nothing right....

sooperdooper Wed 06-Aug-14 08:51:19

I don't think he even notices, unless he tries to have sex and I say no

Whilewildeisonmine Wed 06-Aug-14 08:51:28

Sympathetic, caring. He's not as likely to try to undo my bra when we hug....

sooperdooper Wed 06-Aug-14 08:52:03

Actually, why would he know? Do people tell their partners? If so, why?

treaclesoda Wed 06-Aug-14 08:52:34

Relieved mostly, as we are definitely not wanting another child.

beccajoh Wed 06-Aug-14 08:52:45

Normally. I have fairly inoffensive periods (minimal pain, no raging PMT) so the only indicator I'm having one is that I tell him we can't have sex.

smilingthroughgrittedteeth Wed 06-Aug-14 08:53:59

The same as normal.

my periods are pretty awful so he makes sure ive got a hotwater bottle and painkillers but other than that he is just the same as he normally is.

GothMummy Wed 06-Aug-14 09:03:52

Well, I would struggle to hide it sooperdooper! As I have awful periods and being sick with pain or lying on the bathroom floor in pain is not unusual for me. Plus all the towels I have to sleep on in case of leaks sad
But he is his usual self, brings chocolate and hot water bottles when asked or walks miles to late night chemists to pick up pain killer prescriptions for me.

sebsmummy1 Wed 06-Aug-14 09:06:06

Pissed off as sad as it means we are not pregnant ..... AGAIN. I have to say he knows far more about my downstairs that he ever wanted to know but he deals with it beautifully.

SnakeyMcBadass Wed 06-Aug-14 09:08:06

Relieved. My pmt is hellish.

chaseface Wed 06-Aug-14 09:10:41

Same as normal, just adjusts sex as requested.

weatherall Wed 06-Aug-14 09:12:15

He cooks me a steak.

Branleuse Wed 06-Aug-14 09:13:37

he acts normal. Im not sure why he would act differently??

bonzo77 Wed 06-Aug-14 09:25:11

As normal. Shares my disappointment that I'm not pregnant. Again.

Quitelikely Wed 06-Aug-14 09:27:42

Terrified grin

OhBabyLilyMunster Wed 06-Aug-14 09:31:14

Makes me a hot water bottle and fetches a box of chocolates from tesco.

Deluge Wed 06-Aug-14 09:32:41

I think he used to think I was a bit of a drama queen and making a fuss about something normal and 'everyday'. Over the years, though, he has seen how it affects me (bad PMS) and is extra nice, caring and patient to me now when I tell him its coming. I often get chocolate and tea in bed grin

WiggleGinger Wed 06-Aug-14 09:33:50

Acts just as normal but knows there isn't any chance of sex.

MollySolverson Wed 06-Aug-14 09:34:21

Banishes me to a special tent and ensures I don't touch the family food or water in case I curse/poison it. Doesn't everyone's dp do this?
