its normal. not everyone gets it. its just a skin pigment change. if you want to get techincal its called linea nigrea. it usually disapears after birth. i dont have one, im 22 weeks.

I have heard of ppl having those. A girl who i know is African American and hers was VERY dark. I dont have one, i have a hairy line..

It's called linea negra - literally "black line". It's totally normal for me. I got one with my son but not with my daughter, she was first. Also, a lot of people say they don't go away after you see it, it stays, but I have a two and a half year old and it went away really soon after he was born.
