Linea Nigra

C - August 24

I am now 34 weeks pregnant and just yesterday my fiancee pointed out that I do actually have the line on my belly, though it is extremely faint and I had not noticed it before. At what stage in pregnancy does this usually appear? All my google searching has shown me is definitions of the term.

Perhaps everyone is different, but this is my second child and I knew to expect it so I think I started seeing it around 20 weeks or a little before or a little after that time period...

Usually sometime in your second trimester. I have read that if you are fair skinned, your linea nigra will be light as well. I have very light skin, so I barely have a line at 27 weeks.

I am also very light toned and noticed it around 30 weeks, but was not sure that is what it was. I thought it could have been an indentation from my clothes but it was always there no matter what I wore. I thought a seem was making that faint line appear, but now I know what it is.
