I had one with my DD and now I have one this time too.

It's kind of funny though. I read somewhere that if you have a linea nigra and are having a girl, it extends from your belly button down to your pubic bone; if you are having a boy, it extends all the way from the tip of your breastbone down to your pubic bone. This has actually been correct for me, I was really surprised!! It's not very dark yet but it is definitely creeping up well beyond my belly button this time.

Who else has a linea nigra??

Me!!! but im having a girl, and its wayyy up on my ribs and goes allll the way down. Its just lovely. Dh makes fun of me for it all the time. I actually dont mind having it, because im usually the only one who sees my belly. haha. When did yours show up? I've had mind for awhile now, like since 16ish weeks. That seems really early to me.

Why would he make fun of you about it?
I started getting dark around my belly button around 10-12 weeks. The line didn't start showing up until probably 16-18 weeks.
They say it is caused by your abdominal muscles seperating as your uterus grows and pushes against them. When it shows up probably depends a bit on your build and muscle tone.

Dh is well..a 5 year old in a mans body. He also thinks that hearing me pee is gross, but him peeing with the door open is open. haha. I ask him all the time how old is he is when he says stuff like that he he says "5". Somedays he is 10 though...haha.

I think I would give my DH a swift kick in the butt if he ever said anything negative about how I look or any of my bodily functions, pregnant or not, lol.
