Keep an eye on it and look up the symptoms of appendicitis so you know what to be aware of.

Sorry forgot to say can't be appendicitis as appendics was removed when she was a week old.

Oh well, that can only be a good thing.

Could she be near to starting her periods?
Or could just be a 48 hr tummy bug (without the messy bit)

Hadn't thought periods as it is possible. Signs of puberty start about 2 years ago, but has only just really got going with puberty. Also that would make sense a I've just had my period. I always use to be insync with my sisters and mother in my teens.

So could she be staring periods now or some time off still.

I was ill with a stomachache for the last couple of days of a holiday when i was 11. The day we drove home from the holiday my 1st period started so it's not an impossibility that that is what it is.

Bless her curl up on the sofa with a movie and hot water bottle. Was feeling a bit better but suddenly lower abdominal felt worse.
Just what I did once a month in my teens I only hope if this is signs of periods she don't get period pains like I use to. Horrible cramps felt sick and ofen a headache, use to end up been sent home from school or simple miss 1-3 days every month.

lexcat I too suffered from really bad period pains as a teen. Sickness, headache, diarhoea, fainting, the works. I missed loads of school.
Luckily, DD (15) has not suffered like I did.
If she is no better by tomorrow, maybe take her to get checked out by GP or walk-in centre?
