With DS1, mine took a long time ( a few months) to fade, but it eventually did.

I found actually that a few months after DD was born, I could wash the line away if I scrubbed hard. Not sure why that is, but it worked....

I agree with pp, with dd, I was able to wash the line out, especially I recall near the belly button area, but I remember it took a little while. I didnt get one with this pregnancy. I did get stretch marks...I dont think those fade away... at least they havent yet....:

Hmm, mine has started to fade, especially near the top, but it is clearly still there 12 weeks later. When I asked my doc about it, he said it would fade, but not go away. Drats!
