  • This is totally normal - not cool for girls like me who seem to be covered in light hair! Most of the dark hair will fall out or fade after pregnancy (though not right away), so don't worry too much about... and don't bother to shave it off or anything, cause it'll all just come back!

  • It is called the linea nigra and is very common. It usually goes away after you give birth.

  • Yup. And it's really a very normal thing. WAIT till you get the dark brown line down the middle of your tummy.

  • That happened to me this time around. But its not just in the middle of my belly. Its like ALL the blonde peach fuzz on my belly is dark and gross.

  • Yes, I had the line too, it took forever to go away. I can still see the line a little if I'm looking for it, and my DS is almost 20 months.

  • lol.. absolutely normal. my tummy was so hairy & nasty during my first pregnancy, but not with my second and third. the interesting thing was that my first had a full head of thick black hair and my other two were bald. i wonder if there's a correlation between the two?

  • It can be a line on the skin or hair. Both are completely normal.
