    Mine went away alittle but not completely with DS 6. So I still have it.
    Same here--mine had gotten fairly faint and wasn't as long, but it was still there. It's not getting darker now, though. I don't really remember when it first showed up. Sometime in the 20's.

    I never got one last time.  My belly button didnt pop either.  I did gethorrendous stretch marks starting at 34v weeks though.  I think it's just one of those things determined mostly by genetics.

    Mine showed up around 11 weeks, but I heard it has a lot to do with skin tone. I'm Hispanic and have like medium olive skin

    I think I had to have been around 6 months or later before mine showed up... it was pretty light though.

    I never got one in any of my pregnancies.

    Darker skinned women usually get them. Fairer-skinned women sometimes don't. And don't be surprised if your baby has one too! :)

    I didn't get one with DS. Instead my belly just gets a little more fuzzy and any fine hairs seem to get darker.

    I know I had one with my last pregnancy but I have no clue when I actually got it! I guessing around 30 weeks. I haven't gotten one yet, thankfully because mine from last time just went away a few months ago!

    @bunnyfungo I believe it has to do with the melatonin in your skin so it stands to reason that if you're dark-skinned, your linea nigra will be super dark. I'm fair too and I keep checking my belly in the mirror to see if it had shown up yet :) I think my belly is just gonna be covered in "tiger stripes" instead bc I get stretch marks so bad.

    I never got one either.  Not sure if I'll have one this time, so far nothing.

    That's interesting because I am the palest pale pale ginger there ever was lol. Mine never got super dark but it was definitely there.
    I'm ridiculously pale, too, and I got one last time.  Last night I noticed I have a dark "halo" around my belly button already.  It's weird, but I guess maybe the beginning of a line?

    I'm very fair and didn't really get a line until baby was out and the belly was 'deflated' lol.  Then you could see a line a bit.

    If you all had a line, did you also get melasma? Or pregnancy mask?

    @kvlrn I had a little bit of melasma prior to getting pregnant, but surprisingly it didn't get worse with my last pregnancy, even though I got a line.  Hopefully this time will be the same!  I tried to use my TriLuma as much as possible before TTC.  :)
