How often do you have to empty your cup on your heaviest day(s)?

I ask this after a very tiresome night I just had. I use a large fleurcup, and have what I perceive to be a heavy flow (no birth control).  I usually have to get up once during the night for the first 1-2 nights to empty my cup.  Last night, however, (first night) I emptied my cup at 12:00 when I went to bed, then was up at 4:30, 5:30, and 8:00, each time with a more than full cup.  I noticed there being way more clots than usual (literally, the whole cup was one big clot a few times).  I also have a little more cramping than usual (still totally tolerable without pain meds).

Anyway, this post is just more of a curiosity post of how heavy everyone else's flow is, or if you've had an out of the blue franken-period like this one before.  Soo, share away, with what cup you use, maybe if you use bc or not, or whatever else you think is relevant.  :)
