Just had my baby and I've got that "line"

My son was born on Mothers Day, I was blessed to have only gained 11 lbs and have already lost 15lbs, no stretch marks either! YAY! :) Okay, but onto the question, I know have that dark line from my belly button to my uterus I guess you could say? How can I try to get it to fade or will it always be there?

  • It will fade, but it may take a long time. I got the line with my first baby and it lasted for like six months! I didn't get the line at all with my second baby.

  • I had that too. It will fade, trust me. It's just a matter of time.

  • It will eventually go away, don;t worry! Congradulations on baby! What a great Mothers day present!

  • I'm guessing you have olive skin which is less prone to stretch marks but gets a darker line. It does fade. I got dark ones each time. They were gone in around six months. Congratulations!
