    I never had any signs leading up to my period... other than spotting about 6 months beforehand, which I hid from my mother by simply throwing my undies away. lol.
    Bahahha I did this too, Sass. I told mum when I was about 20. She was soooo offended I didn't tell her!

    My first one was horrible...the only warning I got was my boobs started to develop a few months before and then one day we were having a school sports carnival and I felt something wet dripping down my leg...look down and there's blood I FREAKED I had no idea what was going on and thought something was wrong with me....then the embarrassment as everyone saw...I went home in tears I was never told anything and even if I was told that couldn't have prepared me for the embarrassment.

    So did I. And if I bloodied up my undies I chucked 'em. Dunno why I was so embarrassed, mum was always very open about it.

    I am actually in process of setting DD2 purse (I use a small purse so that if the other kids see it the don't know what it is) for her schoolbag. I put a spare pair of undies and slim pad in it. She is showing signs that it could be any day.

    Loves this idea. It's all so good to have a spare skit or shorts in their bag just in case Plus a plastic bag.

    I know for myself, I had repeated thrush infections for a year before the onset of periods.

    -------------

    I remember being told about a magic minimum weight - something like 30kg - and that girls generally only begin their periods above that weight. (I'm not certain but I think my daughters were under that weight when they started.)
