Ligna Negra - aka that dark line at your belly button

okay girls so who's got one?
i had one with my first and then had the c/s and it took a good month or two to go away.
DS2 i didn't have one
#3 just noticed that i do have a line but it comes up and stops at my c/s scar which is why i've never noticed it before and i'm guessing i probably had it with DS2 then.

so ladies....curiosity here....who's got them and did you with others, c/s etc etc

I had a dark one with DD1, none with DD2, a light one that got darker after the birth with DS and with this one I noticed that it's appearing again this past week. Mine is a little weird in that it isn't a straight line. It is 'bent' a little where the scar from my belly button piercing is and a little up from there

Nope, none here. I didn't expect one though because I'm super fair skinned.

I have a very fair complexion so no line for me. Just lots of stretch marks Smile

Yup, lots of stretch marks for me. I'm thinking mapping a trip across country with my stretch marks. Could probably take me here to Washington!

This is my first. I got one. It's light and thin and starts under my breasts (centered) and runs all the way down.

i just noticed that my line has now progressed past the c/s scar and is headed toward my belly button. so much for a nice pretty tummy for preggy pictures at teh beginning of August. Sad

I had one with my first and it was DARK! It took forever to fade...probably like 2 months or so! This time I don't have anything.
