Sometimes women get a line called a linea negra
down their pregnant belly. Did you get one? At what point in pregnancy? Which trimester? When did it go away?
- I have a son and a daughter. I'm currently pregnant with another boy. Each time, I've had this appear. So it does NOT matter on the gender of the child. It does fade away shortly after you deliver.

Dark line on pregnant belly
- My mom said that you have a dark line on your belly, your baby is boy. I'm in 31st week.

- I found a dark line started around 17 weeks along with my third pregnancy. My mom tried to tell me that it was because I was having a baby boy. (We didn't know.) I had already had a boy and did not have the line, so I shrugged it off. It went away a few weeks after our son was born. It started fading nearly right away.
