<p>So ... I have been seeing a shadowy line running from my belly button on down for about a week, especially when I'm changing and there's a mirror around. This morning it's even darker (but still pretty light)! I think this has to be that linea ***** I've heard about. But I thought it came much later! I'm just 12w2d. Anyone else noticing this already? Experienced moms: when did this appear on your bellies on your past pregnancies?</p>

<p>P.S. I was looking around on dr. google to see if this is what I think it is, and saw that there's a lot of info about how to minimize the line or whatever. Pshhaw! This is awesome, are you kidding! I kinda love it. Goofy, I know. </p>

<p>i never got it with my first pregnancy and so far don't with this one. i have seen it though on other women and i think it is beautiful! i would not do anything to minimize it if i had it. i think my body just doesn't make that line unfortunately i am glad that you like yours :)</p>

<p>I have one but that's only because it never had a chance to completely fade after my last pregnancy. I don't really notice until mid/late pregnancy and sometimes not until afterward. Mine is crooked <img alt="love.gif" src="http://files.mothering.com/images/smilies/love.gif"></p>

<p>I always get darker belly hair early on, and then the actual skin shadowing comes a little later. It's like pre-linea *****.</p>
