S/C/G: >138/124/114

Height: 5'4"

Default I gained an inch!

This past March, I went to the doctor (I apparently had a double ear infection).

I was weighed and had my height recorded, as I had last been there when I was twelve.

When I was twelve, I was 5'1.75" and weighted 114lbs.
In march, I was 15. I was 5'3" and 138lbs.

This morning, my father insisted that I was taller than my (5'3.75") mother.

He got his tape measure and t-square and measured my height.

I am... 5'4.25"

In less than five months, I gained an inch and a quarter.
Yay for unforseen growth.

(I didn't know where to put this... but I'm also wondering when you all here stopped growing taller)

Oh wow! I doubt I'll be that tall-ATM I'm the tallest (and thinnest for my height) female in the family. My parents are 5'3" and 5'9", and my grandparents are all under 5'4" (aka shorter than me). My parents aren't sure where this height is coming from!

Go you!

I think I probably stopped growing when I was about 17 or 18. I was looking at copies of old medical records from when I was 15 a while back, and my height on those is listed as 5'2". I'm 5'4.6" now.

If I remember my forensic anthropology instructor correctly, women usually stop growing in their mid-to-late teens. Men can continue to grow into their early 20's (of course, they start later).
