Do I sound short for my age?

I'm 13 and 4'11.

I got my period three years ago! O.o

    Definitely on the shorter side, but some girls don't hit their growth spurts until as late as 16 or 17 (genetics, of course, are the main culprit). By 18 - 20 yrs of age, height has reached it's full potential. In the US, the average height for a woman is around 5'5".

    NO! My sister is 14 and is 4 '9 maybe you have not hit your growth spurt but talk to your doctor if you already got you monthly period.

    No! I know many other girls who are relatively the same height and age as you! don't worry :)

    I'm 14 and 5'3 and I used to think I was short, but now i'm okay with it. You have to embrace it.
