Possibly started her period.

I have 8 1/2 yr old twins. Tonight one might have started her period. We thought maybe her bottom might have been bleeding but after talking her into letting me check, nothing there. Poor girl, that hard for her. I had to remind her it was the same bottom I use to wipe clean when she wore diapers. I have decided to make that decision in the morning. I put a little pad in her panties just in case. If so, she is too young. This in my shiest, easily embarrassed child. Why her, why now? Anyone else have one start so young? I started when I was 12.

I'm so sorry you're both having to deal with this stress. I knew a family whose daughter started just after she turned 9, so it does happen that early sometimes. Does she have a lot of other signs of puberty? I remember you mentioning that both girls had started wearing bras a few months ago.
