funny question but...

hoping someone knows what in the world I am talking about.  Saw a post where someone said they can see the "line" down the middle of their bump, what is it called?!  When does it appear normally and what is it?

    Mine just started to appear. Very faint so far, but it's there. (I have lurked on other boards and it doesn't just go away right after birth...sometimes it sticks around for a few months.)

    It is called the linea nigra (spelling may be off). I don't know when it appears though

    This.

    I still have no sign of a line but my friend had her little one in January and she still has the line although it's lighter.

    according to WTEWE its called the linea nigra during pregnancy, and called linea alba when not pregnant. i guess its not noticeable when not pregnant and during pregnancy it becomes more noticeable, doesnt say what it is for. it does say you can tell if ur having a boy or girl- old wives tale.

    Awesome, thanks ladies!  I was watching Two and a half men on television with DH and there was a prego on there with her tummy sticking out and her linea nigra was dark.  He didn't believe me what it was so now I have the info!  I knew it was from horomones but thats all I knew.
