Real Life: I need advice from young women...


My oldest daughter started her period for the first time.  

I had been telling her about it for years now, so I don't think either of us was shocked, but I still worry that I've missed something.  It's been so long since I got mine for the first time and I've been racking my brain trying to remember if there was something I wished I knew that I didn't back then. 

My daughter seems so... disinterested.  She almost seems as though she wants to ignore the whole thing.   I don't want to push anything on her but I also don't want her to be uninformed.  Also, I'm surprised at how much I'm worrying about all of this.  I never thought I would worry, but I do.  I worry that she'll have bad cramps.  I worry that she'll leak at school and be embarrassed.  I worry that she won't change often enough, etc.

I know she has to learn to deal with this on her own and in her own way, but I want to help as much as I can.

So what do you wish you had known about the whole thing that no one told you? 


Thanks everyone!! 

*cries*    MY BABY IS GROWING UP!!!!    *runs off to sob*
