Question Belly Button Line question

Hi!

I've just noticed a line going from my belly button down my stomach. I know some woman get that while pregnant. Is that a signal that I might be pregnant, or could it possibly indicate something else? I haven't really noticed any other pregnancy symptoms, so I was unsure if my hunny and I should run and get the pregancy test!

Thanks for all of your help!

Re: Belly Button Line question

The line is called Linea Nigra and indicates a change in sexual hormones. This does not necessarily mean that you are pregnant.

In pregnancy it usually occurs in the second trimester, when the belly is getting large.
