Put a wad of toilet paper on your undies and wrap toilet paper around it to secure it in place.

Find an old towel or T shirt, fold it up and sleep on it. 

When I'm on my heavy flow, I can't even sleep anyway :/ 

good luck!

Wake him up lightly and tell him you will run quick to the nearest store.Just so he doesn't wake randomly and flip to not see you, and go.

I have taken a white, cotton shirt of mine once and cut it up into long strips. Folded them up and used them as a pad.

Washcloths work great in a pinch.

That's what people did before pads and tampons were invented, you know.
