Dear BeingGirl Experts,

I would just like to share my story with all of the other late puberty bloomers who are shy with their mom.... Ever since I was little, I haven't been very close with my mom. I would never tell her anything that went on at school with my friends, or anything like that. Then, when I got my first period, I panicked. I didn't know what to do. I found some of my sister's pads and used those along with toilet paper for almost a year. When it came time for me to sign up for a sport I was about to start playing, the truth finally came out. I stayed calm as my mom approached me with the form. She asked if I had gotten my period. She hugged me and answered all my questions. During that time before I told her it was awful. I never knew when it was going to come, or if it was going through my pants. So don't be shy and tell your mom a.s.a.p. because you'll have a tough time if you don't.

Dear Sydna,

Thanks for sharing your story. Mothers are the best resource girls have and sharing your story shows this. Mothers were teens and have gone through the experiences of puberty. Mothers become the resident experts for their own children and relationships formed at this time help moms and daughters communicate for life. Girls can trust their mothers to help them to grow up.

@CrazyAwesome2 I really want my period. I know it's a pain, but it's just something I want because then I will know that I'm growing and stuff. I hate it when my friends and stuff say I don't want it because I do.

It's okay! My mom was a huge late bloomer, and I definitely take after her as well! That's why I love talking to her about everything becuase I know she went through the same thing I am. (Even though my sister was very early!) LOL :)

I was early. :( One of my "friends" can`t wait to have there . and I didn`t know why. I mean all that responsibility and remembering andblah blah blah! I don`t know why she wants it. When I got mine, I was relieved that I didn`t have to worry anymore cuz when i got it, it was around the time my sister and mom got it. I would always be scared to go to the bathroom at school cuz I thought, will I see blood this time? LUckily, NO. I went to the bathroom and i was like. Thank God I wasn`t at school! I`m still scared to take a pad to school tho. I think ppl are gonna see them and find out and i`d rather them not know... I told my mom and it was just like a bonding moment. It`s OK when you think about it.
