Pronunciation of "petite"

When she says "Quand j’étais petite" the last word does not sound like it starts with "p" to me.  It sounds like "tetite".  I listened several times and I just don't hear the initial "p" sound.  Is it just me?  What should I be listening for to be sure I hear the "p" sound?
