Using WHERE EXISTS still returning duplicate records.  How can I fix this query?

I have this following query:

select u.odf_parent_id,
       u.bhi_eng_mo_upd_yr year1,
       (select SUM(bhi_apexp_period) from ODF_CA_BHI_ENG_MON_UPDT where bhi_eng_mo_upd_yr = u.bhi_eng_mo_upd_yr and odf_parent_id = u.odf_parent_id and bhi_emu_period = 1) PERIOD1,
       (select SUM(bhi_apexp_period) from ODF_CA_BHI_ENG_MON_UPDT where bhi_eng_mo_upd_yr = u.bhi_eng_mo_upd_yr and odf_parent_id = u.odf_parent_id and bhi_emu_period = 2) PERIOD2,
       (select SUM(bhi_apexp_period) from ODF_CA_BHI_ENG_MON_UPDT where bhi_eng_mo_upd_yr = u.bhi_eng_mo_upd_yr and odf_parent_id = u.odf_parent_id and bhi_emu_period = 3) PERIOD3,
       (select SUM(bhi_apexp_period) from ODF_CA_BHI_ENG_MON_UPDT where bhi_eng_mo_upd_yr = u.bhi_eng_mo_upd_yr and odf_parent_id = u.odf_parent_id and bhi_emu_period = 4) PERIOD4,
       (select SUM(bhi_apexp_period) from ODF_CA_BHI_ENG_MON_UPDT where bhi_eng_mo_upd_yr = u.bhi_eng_mo_upd_yr and odf_parent_id = u.odf_parent_id and bhi_emu_period = 5) PERIOD5,
       (select SUM(bhi_apexp_period) from ODF_CA_BHI_ENG_MON_UPDT where bhi_eng_mo_upd_yr = u.bhi_eng_mo_upd_yr and odf_parent_id = u.odf_parent_id and bhi_emu_period = 6) PERIOD6,
       (select SUM(bhi_apexp_period) from ODF_CA_BHI_ENG_MON_UPDT where bhi_eng_mo_upd_yr = u.bhi_eng_mo_upd_yr and odf_parent_id = u.odf_parent_id and bhi_emu_period = 7) PERIOD7,
       (select SUM(bhi_apexp_period) from ODF_CA_BHI_ENG_MON_UPDT where bhi_eng_mo_upd_yr = u.bhi_eng_mo_upd_yr and odf_parent_id = u.odf_parent_id and bhi_emu_period = 8) PERIOD8,
       (select SUM(bhi_apexp_period) from ODF_CA_BHI_ENG_MON_UPDT where bhi_eng_mo_upd_yr = u.bhi_eng_mo_upd_yr and odf_parent_id = u.odf_parent_id and bhi_emu_period = 9) PERIOD9,
       (select SUM(bhi_apexp_period) from ODF_CA_BHI_ENG_MON_UPDT where bhi_eng_mo_upd_yr = u.bhi_eng_mo_upd_yr and odf_parent_id = u.odf_parent_id and bhi_emu_period = 10) PERIOD10,
       (select SUM(bhi_apexp_period) from ODF_CA_BHI_ENG_MON_UPDT where bhi_eng_mo_upd_yr = u.bhi_eng_mo_upd_yr and odf_parent_id = u.odf_parent_id and bhi_emu_period = 11) PERIOD11,
       (select SUM(bhi_apexp_period) from ODF_CA_BHI_ENG_MON_UPDT where bhi_eng_mo_upd_yr = u.bhi_eng_mo_upd_yr and odf_parent_id = u.odf_parent_id and bhi_emu_period = 12) PERIOD12
from  ODF_CA_BHI_ENG_MON_UPDT u  
WHERE EXISTS (SELECT 'X' FROM ODF_CA_BHI_ENG_MON_UPDT x WHERE u.odf_parent_id = x.odf_parent_id AND u.bhi_eng_mo_upd_yr = x.bhi_eng_mo_upd_yr)

Essentially, I am trying to turn the data from vertical to horizontal and have 1 column for each period.  The problem is that it is returning multiple records for the same ODF_PARENT_ID and YEAR.   I don't want to use SELECT DISTINCT since the performance is much slower, but I can't seem to get the EXISTS clause to work properly where it will only return 1 row for each ODF_PARENT_ID / YEAR combination.

As an example of the results:
