DD is 10, and she has already started the beginnings of puberty, she needs a bra, she is starting to grow body hair, etc. She hasn't started her period yet, but today out of nowhere I would swear she is PMSing! We were going to lunch with my parents and she got pissed to the point of yelling because the sports bra she had on showed with the shirt she chose so she had to change one or the other... then 10 minutes later she broke down in tears telling me school was hard this year and she feels like she has to be perfect in everything she does. This is not something she has ever expressed to me before... so it was out of the blue. She basically didn't talk at all during lunch and actually cried when my mom kept asking her what was wrong.
I asked her if she was feeling OK, if her stomach hurt or anything and he said no. I explained that the reason I wanted to know was sometimes before your period (we've talked about periods) you can feel upset and emotional for no reason, which is exactly what she told me she was feeling.
I guess I am just a bit surprised and wondering if anyone else's DD has experienced PMS before actually having their first period? Or is this something else I need to look into further?
