|Menarch (the beginning of menstruation) usually happens in "Stage 4" of puberty, but can happen late in Stage 3 as well. While there are no real "signs" of an impending first period, there are signs that may let you know when it is likely to happen.

According to that site, onset of menstruation is usually after pubic hair has taken on the "triangular" shape and after underarm hair has begun growing.
My DD is still young (6) but I think this is a pretty good book
