9 year old getting period??? - Page 3

post #41 of 42
Thread Starter 
Well, she was 8lbs. 1 oz and born naturally on her due date, so I don't think that's an issue!

She has become such a picky eater lately, I try the OJ but she doesn't like it and doesn't like molasses, so...

I have not had her tested, but she has signs of anemia and won't eat almost anything with iron or protein in it. I hope she snaps out of this picky eating thing soon!

I don't remember having pain when I pee when I got my period, but then again is being quit long, ha.
I agree with the moms that advice having a talk to your daughter about what to expect and why.
I also recommend you to get some pads (the light ones) and have them for when the time comes. I when I got mine and my mom wanted to do something "special" and took me to buy many pads so I could try them on and find which one I liked more. Now I think it was a very nice touch but back then I was soo embarrassed
