linea nigra

Who's got a linea nigra? I had one last time but I'm not seeing one this time! Weird? Perhaps it's too early.

Mine took a lot longer to appear this time than last time with DD.. but it came. Smile I'd say around 35 weeks?

I've got a very faint one - like I think DH thinks it's just dark hair or something (he hasn't mentioned it, which is probably good for him). But it's becoming more and more noticeable.

I do Blum 3 I don't remember when I got it but I'm also darker skinned so.. I think it shows up earlier on darker complexions.

I've never had one I guess, I think, then again I'm fluffier too and I got a nice line of hair. My whole belly got harrier this time and didn't last time. Weird.

I am really fair skinned and have never noticed one before and haven't so far yet!

I'm also more fair skinned and don't have one that I notice. I did notice mine showed up after birth with DS2 and hung around for a little while before it faded away. I think it was probably there during pregnancy but due to stretched skin, wasn't visible and then right after birth showed up visibly.

Weird. I had one by about 20 weeks with #3, but it's barely noticeable this time.

I've had them in the past, but I don't remember when they appeared. Sometime in the third tri? Anyway, nothing this time yet.

I have one and I am pretty fair skinned. I think it showed up around 24 weeks.

FYI - the linea nigra isn't hair...it's a skin colouration thing. Biggrin

I looked back at some pics of my belly with DD and I think I had a lower one by now...but not this time. It might be coming. We'll see. For the record, I'm pretty fair skinned too. Maybe a bit olive if placed beside a SUPER fair skinned person. LOL

My red hair is a pretty good indicator of how fair my skin is Wink

The skin on my chest is so fair and thin that you can see a maze of veins all over my chest and boobs. I would look ridiculous wearing some skanky-low-cut dress like the stars wear at the Oscars. What do you think they do, use makeup on their chest to cover veins? LOL.

I think I do have one quite lightly this time, but not as dark as with my last. Strange.

My chest veins are HUGE right now. Celebs must wear make-up to cover it up!

No line, but hair. Same as last time so far.

I've had one every time, but can't remember when it showed up. None yet this time.

My belly has certainly become more fuzzy in addition to the line. LOL

My chin and neck has certainly become more fuzzy. Sad

I had a very dark one with my first. It didn't go away completely until I was pregnant with #2 (early on) and never came back with him. So far nothing with this one either. Pretty weird.
