    Actually, the age that someone has their main growth spurt is a good predictor of overall height. Those who have their spurts on the earlier side (both men and women), tend to be shorter on average. I'm pretty short myself, and low and behold, I had my growth spurt when the girls were having them.

    I had a brief period where I was taller than almost anyone my age, and people thought I was going to be some kind of giant. But no, this didn't pan out... Heh.

    Yeah, I can testify to that. I didn't hit a major growth spurt until around almost 16, when I was 5'4, and my mom assumed I was going to be some kind of genetic failure(dad is 6'6, my mom is almost 6') and then I grew almost a foot over the summer.

    Those growing pains...

    Longing is the agony of the nearness of the distant

    I'm maybe 5'6 myself, but I make the best of it. Woulda been nice to have another inch or two maybe, but eh, good things come in small packages, right?

    Short girls are expected, even in some cases, desired. But with men...?

    Not so much.

    But like I said, we have to make the best of it and do what we can to learn to live with it. I'm on the autistic spectrum as well and people on the autistic spectrum tend to be a little shorter on average. There are though, exceptions to this as always.

    I'm thinking it's related to the sprinting.
    Oh man this happens to me, too, and I'm an old lady who eats way more carbohydrates than your daughter! I have no idea what to do about it.

    How long has she been extra hungry? It seems pretty common around here for people to experience highly variable appetite - eating like crazy for a few days or weeks and then cycling back down to needing less food.

    It could just be a natural, but temporary, bump. If I am reading correctly, it doesn't really seem like she is eating all that much - would it be a problem for her to just eat more if she is hungry?

    I didn't stop growing until I was about 22 as well. And didn't really start until I was around 16 or 17 as well. I was always the shortest in school but now when I run into the "tall" people from school I'm at least a few inches higher.

    I was still growing after I left school, maybe didn't stop completely till 19 or 20 when I finally reached 5'4".
