View Full Version : When'd you get the linea nigrea? (sp?)

Sorry if I spelled that wrong!

This is my 3rd pregnancy and I know I had it by 20 weeks the other two times. Now I'm 24 weeks and no line. Hmmmm.

I didn't really get one this time. That might be because it didn't totally go away last time, but whatever.

I'm close to 25 weeks and I don't have it. There is, however, and odd purple shadow all around my navel.

I'm 34 weeks and it's made come back..........I've just really started to notice it though

35 weeks here and no linea negra. Never had one with DD #1, either.

I didn't have it with daughter #1 and haven't gotten it this time either.

Sometime after 20 weeks. Probably around 22-24 weeks. I didn't really want to get one before I did, but now I kinda like it!

Early on, before or around 20 weeks. Not only that, I'm dark all on my belly button (which is flat/outie now) and the line (and this part is off-centered!) extends above it. I just hope it goes away after LO is born!

like the PP mine is HERE and very dark and off centered from the belly button up...

I've also gotten a line down the back of my leg...one side is a shade or two lighter than the other...

same type of line on my arm extending from the top of my shoulder to my elbow...

you know, I'm not sure if I have this -- I can't see down past my belly button anymore (towards the end of 2nd trimester, around 24 weeks also). Is it supposed to be running up and down from the belly button? the major change I have noticed is that my belly button has become an outtie much earlier than it did with my DS.

Working on #6 here and I have never had it.

towards the very end. and, sidenote, would you believe no stretchmarks UNTIL THE WEEK AFTER I had DS2?!?! I itchily felt them appear even.

This is my first, I'm at 25 weeks and no line yet for me. Also, while my belly button has definitely gotten a lot shallower, it's still a bit of an innie at this point...
Good question, I was wondering the same thing!

almost at the finish line (c-section scheduled for 8/3) and I don't have one yet.
