It is normal to start experiencing cramps and other symptoms for months before getting a period. Girls do have the beginnings of a cycle much earlier - my stepdaughter had the monthly mood swings for at least 12 months before she ever actually got her period.

I am glad I am not the only one experiencing this!! I just don't want her to grow up to fast. I still consider her as my baby girl. She has 3 months before she is 13. Ugh!! Thanks Girl!!! :)

Very normal. She's starting her cycle...even though it may be awhile before the actual period happens.

Hang in there, Kristen! Here's the start of the teenage roller coaster years! Welcome to the club!

Thank You Shawnn!! We went to the store and got tween pads just incase she starts. I read on the internet that girls can have cramping periods without actual having a period. I found that very interesting. You have been a big help thanks!!
