    Linea Nigra

    I was just wondering when or if people got the linea nigra (sp) as i am now at twenty weeks and do not have one. My books suggest that you may have one from 14-16 weeks. Could i still get one?

    I only have a very faint one in both pregnancies. I noticed mine more after I gave birth.

    I don't have one either and not sure if everyone gets one?

    I am checking for stretch marks daily but no sign of either.

    Gemma, I look for stretch marks everday and ask Mark to look as I can`t see everything now with my bump, hopefully my stretch mark cream is working (I can only hope).

    I only have a very faint one, but i'm not too bothered either way. O

    Apparenltly, every woman has one even when she's not pregnant - it just tends to get more pronounced during pregnancy.
