  • Seriously doubt it cause there is always an exception to these things.

  • I had no line when I had a boy and when I had my girl I had one up to my navel, but it was more like a blue color, but I'm very fair skin.

  • I had always heard that if you had a linea nigra, it was a boy, and if not, then it was a girl. I didn't have one, and had a girl - but obviously that doesn't work for everyone.
