WOE: What Ever it Takes!!!!
Start Date: Recommited January 2014
It's been a few years for my DD (turning 14yrs next month) but first signs around around 8 or 9yrs old was the BO. Then the hair and need for training bras not long after. Along with the emotional roller coaster fun. Her period took a little longer.

She started being treated for Hashi's about the same time so that may have played a part in a slightly delayed period when every female in the family has had theirs by the age of 10yrs.

When she reached the weight that the doc expected her to start(she was around 11yrs) he gave us a year to "watch" for it.

I can't remember what the weight was but somewhere between 105 and 115lbs. It has to do with having enough body fat to support it.

Before we had a chance to actually worry though she started. It was about a week before her 12th birthday.

Ever since our cycles have battled each other. Each trying to be the dominant cycle that the other will sync to.

Oh and she is still continuing to grow but her weight stabilized causing her to stretch out and lose most of the "baby" fat.

Plus I don't think they ever "really" know about growth in girls. I was told by my pediatrician when I was complaining about growing pains that I was done growing. He even took an x-ray to show me. I grew another 2 inches after that.


Glad the doc says she's okay and that you're both okay after the accident.

thank you for your input, dawn...your theory makes sense about the go-going thing. tonight I think we will just do all her bedtime routines (bible reading, prayers, talking) ON my bed from the get go and see how that helps her fall asleep.

glad to hear Keira's growth is not on a fast track.

I know I am butting in here but a while back I saw a scientific article about this. This article traced the average age for having your first period back about 150 years. They
made a suprising finding that the growth spurt right before pubity is trigered when the girl reaches about 83 lbs. 150 years ago we were all skinny and the age of having your first period was about 18 but over the years as we become a heavier people this has
come down a whole lot. And as we as a people have been steadly getting heavier earlier
the age of pubity has also been getting younger and younger. They even noticed that
children raised above 2000 feet put on weight more slowley and entered into pubity about 2 years later than girls raised at sea level.

Idk, but my grandmother would be about 121 if she were living, and she started menustrating at around 12 yo. She married my grandfather at 15. 150 years ago it was common to get married before the age of 18, if not considerly younger. I wouldn't think anyone would get married who hadn't started menustrating. I was between 5'2 and 5'3 and about 85 lbs when I started, so definitely not anywhere near any definition of heavy.

I noticed one (1) pubic hair on my daughter - she was 7.

We took her to an endocrinologist. He ran some tests. He said that he could give her hormones (by injection) to delay puberty. I didn't relish the idea of giving my young child injections...

However, he recommended to let nature run it's course. He said it wasn't like she was 2 years old entering puberty (he had cases where he did have to treat babies that young!)

She began menstruating at age 9. Usually we ladies stop growing shortly after beginning menstruation. She is 4'11 1/2" (I'm about the same height).

So - it happens.

I think in this day where our food is "injected" with additives, antibiotics, etc., girls are mature way earlier than we did (I was 11).

*sigh*

My father's mother, who died in the 1980's at 104 years of age, didn't start her TOM till she was 21 and she married at 18. That story always sounded weird to me. I was a late bloomer - went to high school at 13 STILL not needing a bra, but begging my mother for one.

Shh, don't tell anyone, but Keira's a 32A. I have an adult friend that wears the same size! Of course, I think the "tween" bras are sized differently than the adult 32A. I measured her and she's 27" at the band and 27 1/2" - 28" at the cup. Probably adult size would be more like a 28AA, but I didn't feel like taking her to the adult section.

ETA: I wonder if Ella's emotions are coming to the front at bedtime because that's when she's sort of "decompressed" from the day, and allowing herself to feel things more acutely. I know, with ME, I can go-go-go all day, then get overwhelmed when I'm no longer in go-mode. Just a thought.

Update: Just got a call from DH who got a call from the doctor. The results came in more quickly than I thought they would.

Bone age: She's only a few months advanced for her actual age.
Thyroid levels: All came back normal.
Female hormones: She's actually a little bit low, so she probably won't have to deal with her period for at least a little bit.

So she's in puberty, but only because of her family history, and it appears to be running the normal course rather than a "fast track" where we have to worry about growth or anything else at this time. Whew!
Wonderful news!!! I am so very happy all is well!!!!

My sister started at 9. That was in 1977. She had breast too. She looked all of 15.

My cousin just took her daughter to the Dr last week for this. She got hit in the chest in the pool by a raft and bawled her eyes out. And, her mother that WTH? Then later her daughter, who is 10, said mom feel this. It was a knot right behind her nipple. She took her to the Dr. - yep - breast buds. Puberty has begun. That is why she cried when it, was very sensitive.
