  • that line..for me i think its just like fine darker hairs..im 31weeks pregnant so i can't see it anymore! lol and i didn't get that untill my belly got to be a basketball! It didn't show up in early pregnancy. I think it will only show up when your belly is bigger

  • I know some woman who say it's a sign of pregnancy. It can be, but if that's your only sign, then I'd guess you are not pregnant.

  • It's called the linea negra. It shows up during pregnancy and usally goes away in the months after the baby is born. Not all women get it and it doesn't always go away.

  • It's called linea nigra. I was born with that line and it just got darker during my pregnancy. It fades away in time after the baby is born.
