i am 13w5d and just a couple of days ago i noticed that i had a very clear linea ***** developing. for some reason i thought they didn't show up until much later in pregnancy AND i'm not even showing yet!!!<br><br>
it's fairly dark below my navel, but does continue way over my navel. i googled it and there's an old wive's tale that says if it goes that high, it's a boy!<br><br>
anyone else have this lovely stripe yet??

No, and I'm surprised. I always have a faint one and it showed up early with my first pregnancy (which was a girl). Maybe the second time it isn't as obvious because it never fully went away? Either way I think it's cute!

i looooooove it!<br>
of course, having not heard the heartbeat yet (that's tomorrow!), not showing yet, wearing pants that were too small BEFORE the bfp....any pregnancy symptom that doesn't involve vomit is WONDERFUL to me!!

I LOVE mine and was positively thrilled to see it returning before 12 weeks. It's not super-dark yet, but it's definitely there and I didn't notice much of a lingering stripe bfore I got pg this time, since there are 16 years between my two youngst kids.<br><br>
Mine doesn't go over my naval (yet) but I'm pretty sure it did when I was carrying my son and don't really remember with my daughters. I did Shettles (Shettles Light, actually, since I'm 42 years old and this bean was conceived by AI so I didn't want to completely ruin my chances of ever having any baby) for a girl and now I just need to let it go for at least the next six months.

Okay, so, I have a funny (at my expense) story:<br><br>
In the mornings, I wear bike shorts. So comfy. But to go out in public, I switch to cargo pants or jeans.<br><br>
This morning, I shucked off the shorts, looked in the bathroom mirror, and freaked out. Linea *****, already?!!<br><br>
Then I realized that no, I'm just getting fat and the seam from my bike shorts had made a line from belly button to the panty line. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">
