Linea Nigra

Anyone have the linea nigra?
Notices this morning that I do, its not too dark maybe that is why I never noticed it before. I didn't get it with my last pregnancy. Just curious to know how many of us have it.

I have one but it is really, really faint! DH noticed it though. I laugh at it because it's not perfectly down the centre, it's just to the left of my belly button (actually I guess it's to the right, but when I look down it seems like it's on the left lol)

I don't have one with this pregnancy but I had a fairly dark one with Brynna. I've checked this pregnancy but haven't noticed it thus far. Maybe I just don't have a good enough angle. Maybe I need to get DH to look.

I always get a really faint one. Probably not noticeable to anyone but me!

I have one. I would say it is noticeable but not dark. Was the same with DS. And yes, mine is not down the center either... it hangs out on the left.

I have a noticeable one. Its straight down the middle except it goes to the left at my belly button, fades out and starts again in the middle above my belly button. First noticed it about a month ago actually and it is going higher up my belly slowly.

Nope! With Luke I did not think I had one, but after I delivered I noticed a faint one since I could see my belly better, but it was still faint enough that I really couldn't see it standing in front of the mirror

Nope - I don't have one. However, I'm very pale and barely can even tan - so if I got one it would be proof that my skin can change to a color other than ghostly white or red.

I'm in the same boat...very fair skinned and no linea negra.

Oh interesting!! I am extremely fair skinned and I definitely don't tan, I just burn red and go back to ghost white, but I still have a very pale, light-brown line.

Just wanted to say that I noticed you are from Saskatchewan- I am too!

I have fair skin as well- but can tan- My line is very faint but I noticed it this morning when i was putting lotion on my belly. Showed Dh and he could faintly see it.

I know it can get fairly dark so we will see what happens.

I'm very pale skin and covered in freckles. No line yet but I have noticed that the freckles on one side of my face are much darker lol.

Hi Biggrin

I have red hair, freckles, and fair skin, BUT I can get a nice tan if I work at it. Interesting that some fair skinned people are getting the line and others aren't - I wonder what sort of association linea negra has with skin pigmentation vs. how random it is....

Like I said, mine is pretty faint, but my belly button seems to have taken all the dark pigment! The rest of my line is not dark, but my belly button (which has been completely popped out for over 3 months) has like a huge dark blotch on it!
