I don't have the linea nigra this time...I am sure I had it by now in my first 3 pregnancies...in fact I have a pic of my belly from Sophia and it was quite dark at 33 wks....

Do you think it will still come?

Do you have it?

I've never gotten one. Just my skin tone I guess. A girl from my homeschool group has 2 girls and 2 boys and only got it when she was pregnant with the girls. Maybe this one could be a boy :LOL

Sorry I'm of no help!

I haven't gotten one this time around either. (36 weeks). With my dd it wasn't too pronounced, but it was there. This time I am having a boy. Maybe there's a connection? Probably not, but it is fun to speculate.

Never had one myself either, but I also have a 8" scar where it would be from exploratory surgery. And I had a boy too

I don't have the line this time, and I think with our first three babies it had grown lighter each time. I don't really miss it either---as if walking around looking like a barrel weren't already outlandish enough, to have to have a line drawn down your tummy! LOL

I don't have it this time either. I remember it being really obvious in the first pregnancy, don't recall what it was like in the next two.

This is my first one and I got it but it's kind of light - it's my belly button that turned a weird colour. : And where I had a navel peircing.

My first pregnancy I had a very obvious line. This time around nothing even at 33 weeks. I'd read that the darker the skin tone the more prone you are to have it, but not sure why one preggy would have it while another doesnt. Last time was a girl and this time is also a girl. So who knows?

This is my first pregnancy, and I do have one, though it's fairly light, you can hardly see it. My belly button did turn a funky color though, but I don't have it pierced. My belly button was always REALLY deep, so it's really funny to see it sticking this far out!

Mine is very light this time, and it was much darker with my first (girl).
I do have the mask of pregnancy, though, only it's on my neck and my neck looks like it's covered in dirt... :
