Will my hips continue to grow even after menstruation has started?

Will I continue to grow after I ve started my period? I am a 13 year old girl. I started my period when I was 11, at the end of August 2012. I had breasts (a C cup!and had grown, pubic hair and armpit hair before I started my period. I am 5 feet and 5 inches tall. I have a large stomach , thick arms, and big bust, but a small butt, narrow hips, and skinny legs. I heard when you are going through puberty you develop hips before you get your period. So I am wondering if I am finished growing and I am just an apple shape, or if I will continue to grow hips even though I have already started my period?

Thanks for the query.
After puberty also growth will continue.
You can grow till around 18 years. And the growth will usually depend on the genetic constitution, stature of your parents and siblings.
So you don't worry, your growth will continue.
Take nutritious diet and do regular exercises which will help in growth and in attaining good physic.
