    I did, but I didn't notice it until 35 weeks or so.
    It's still there, sort of a coffee brown colour

    I did but it was VERY late in pregnancy as I did not notice it until after the birth and I would have noticed it if it were there earlier as I had hair waxed from my lower belly during pregnancy.

    I had one, reasonably dark and all the way up my belly by around 5 months. I'm mixed race which apparently makes it more likely. I also got more freckles and darker skin in general. My linea nigra is almost completely gone.

    Nope, didn't get it at all during my pregnancies.

    Just blessed with many many strech marks instead.

    I have a very faint line that goes from the pubic bone to the sternum. Its has a kink in it where it reaches the belly button, otherwise its pretty straight.

    And I got told they appear as a "landing strip" for bubs to find the boobs easier, as they can only distinguish between light and dark. Hence why if you are darker skinned, then your line will be darker again. I also got told it appears in ~75% of women, although the poll doesn't seem to reflect that...

    No, but I'll have to vote when I'm on the laptop.

    I'm very fair skinned, not sure if that's relevant?

    I didn't notice anything when I was pregnant, but after my tummy shrunk back to normal I could see a very faint line. I am uber fair skinned.

    I was huge during my pregnancy, even though I only gained 8kgs. I never got a single stretch mark. Maybe the linea nigra absorbed all that stretching.

    I didn't get anything during my first pregnancy, but I was tiny.

    I did in third trimester, so weird but I loved it! I am fair-skinned too, but have quite dark hair, does that make a difference?

    I'm fair skinned and fair haired BUT I have a darker haired 'snail trail' line of hair that runs from my navel to by pubic area, which got darker and thicker when I was preggo. I actually had it waxed about 10 days to two weeks before I had my baby and the line wasn't there yet. Has anyone not developed the line until that late?

    I didn't in my first pregnancy, but did in my second. It was very faint when I had a big belly, but after my belly shrunk back down it was much darker. I too am very fair skinned.
