: (No one in this household has menstruated in two decades so we are out of touch)

: Why is it not "I'm having..." or "I'm in..." or "It is my ..."?

: Why "got"?

: How long has it been "got"?

I'll have to do some research and get back to you. Maybe it's "got" because sometimes it might be considered a gift.
