I was in 5th grade, so I think I was what, 12? It was on gym day, so I had my gym uniform on (navy blue sweatshirt and sweatpants). I went to the bathroom at lunch with a few friends and when I looked in my underwear I was like "Oh my gosh!" and my friends asked "what's up?" and I said "I think I got my period!" LuckilyI had a pad with me, because mom had given me the talk earlier that year. I always had one in my school bag in case of emergencies, so I went back to my classroom, snuck a pad into my pocket, and ran back down to the bathroom.

When I got home, and called my mom at work. I told her I got my period, and she started to cry! She was sobbing saying "My little girl is growing up!" and when she came home, she took me out for ice cream.

I wouldn't say it was necessarily embarrassing. She had always been supportive with that sort of thing (I have an older sister) so it was actually kind of fun "embracing womanhood".
