On My 12th Birthday!

I got my first period on my 12th birthday.

I remember it was early in the morning and I was in the bathroom getting all dressed and ready for the day, (we were all going to a local amusement park to celebrate) and I just remember this aching, throbbing feeling in the pit of my stomach, I actually woke up to that feeling but didn't think much of it.

So, finally, when I sat down on the toilet, I saw what had happened and well, I did panic a little, even though my mom had told me it was gonna happen soon. But I quickly got over it as soon as we got to the amusement park lol.

I also got my first period on my 12th b-day, how strange. It happened in the evening after my party. No warning signs, the cramps didn't even arrive until just after it started.

Man, you handled it better than I did. I didn't even know it was going to happen "soon". I just had the cramps and went to the bathroom and was like, "MOM!!!" I totally freaked out and didn't even think it was a period. <br />
