I am 13 now and have been growing breasts since I was 8 years old. I reached a C36 when I was 10. I started my period in 4th grade. I have been 5'4 since I was about 12. my mom is about 5'6 1/2 and my dad is about 5'7 and 1/2 I think. Could my height be stopping as well as my breast growth early because of how early I hit puberty or is there a chance I'll grow more? If so, how much or how little?

Actually, starting puberty between 8 and 11 is considered average for girls. Too, breast growth is usually the first thing that happens. It's likely that you'll keep growing, but we can't really tell you by how much. Have you been having yearly check-ups with a doctor? If not, that would be a good place to start for you to find out if things are on track.

Also, check out: Not Everything You Wanted To Know About Puberty (But Pretty Darn Close).

Hope this helps!

It does. Thanks! My family doesn't have health insurance that covers check-ups though, although I 'd really like to get one. We just go to the urgent care center whenever I get sick.
