  • I never got the line and although I don't find it extremely attractive to have one, I felt like something was wrong with my pregnancy because I didn't have the brown line.

    Silly how our minds work while pregnant.

  • I had one with my first pregnancy and not my second, its weird but it went away within two weeks after delivery.

  • It's called the linea nigra, and it has to do with hormones. Many women do get it, but not all. It will fade after you deliver.

  • I didnt get it with my 1st pregnancy and I dont have it this time either. Like mentioned, some get it and some dont.

  • If you feel the muscles where the line is you can actually feel that there is a sort of break in the muscles in your stomach where the line appears. Generally speaking, darker skinned women are more likely to get this line. It does go away after the baby is born.
