I have one, but I have an olive-y tone skin. I have heard that people with fair skin are less likely to get it. I am guessing if you are over 36 weeks and don't have it now, you won't get one, since it's mostly due to a reaction to hormones. I think I got mine around 20 weeks.
Be glad you don't have it! It's not very pretty and it doesn't go away until long after birth - I think it took a good 6 months for me, if not more. I still had the "shadow", so I was self conscious in a 2 piece swim suit. It did eventually go away, though, luckily.
naw.... not everyone gets them. I didnt with dd1 and so far not with this PG either. (32 weeks in) Just like some women get that "mask of pregnancy" thing, its not for everyone.
Me, I get bigger freckles on my rather irish face.
mabenner1:Oh no. I am pretty fair, and haven't gotten one.
Qmommy:I had one with DD1 but not this time.
earlysun:I don't have one, but I did get blessed with some wicked stretch marks.
