Line On Belly That Some Preg Women Described

Jen - May 4

I have read some postings on this sight that describe a line going down from their belly button as one of the first signs. Can anyone describe this line? I think I have one, but don't know if it has always been there.

Hey, I've not heard of it being one of the 'first' signs. It is very common, but it happens quite a bit later. Experts aren't quite sure why it happens, it's considered a pigmentation line though. I've heard that possibly the line appears, where the muscles separate. It takes quite a while to fade after pregnancy.

Google linea nigra This normally shows up at the end of the first trimester, but I have spoken to several who have it as an early sign. Good luck!

Hey!!!! Are ya the same Jen that I use to talk to??? If so, Where have ya been lady??....Just kidding!!!.....Its called the linea nigra. Its normally a dark line that comes from the navel to the bottom of the stomach. Its very noticable. The farther along you get, the darker the line gets. Grandpa Viv is right. Good Luck!!!

 

doing some research - May 4

I read that everyone has a very faint line (often near invisible) but the line can darken from the second trimester onwards.Could find no info on it being an early sign.Always says from 2nd trimester onwards when hormones have risen.Maybe those ladies who grandpa viv spoke to got confused about the very faint line.
