My daughter turned nine in February. She started have growing pains in her breast area at seven and by eight she started to develop. I have been buying her training bras for a year now. Her body is curvier and plump around the hips and thighs. I am freakin out, especially after reading that pre-puberty usually starts at 11.
She has also been complaining of pain in her lower abdomen. Her symptoms sound like cramps. I haven't told her my thoughts about her pain, yet. I have talked to her about "periods", puberty, and a bit about reproduction. She knows a girl at school who is nine and started her period, so she has begun to connect the dots. Without my suggestions she said, "Mom, what if I start my period soon?" Frankly, she seems exited about it. I think if it happens we are somewhat prepared.
I am just wondering if this is typical or is she early bloomer with breasts and a growth spurt at nine?
