    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Hi, My daughter is 17 yrs old and she is 5'9.5". I am 5'8" and my husband is 6'2". She is done growing now, but based on her growth I would guess you might get another inch or two. Your doctor may be able to give you a better estimate. She stopped growing a year or a year and a half ago. You never know though. Good luck with pursuing your modeling career!
