Linea Nigra (Belly Button Line)

A linea negra (also linea nigra, pregnancy line or belly button line) is a dark line on abdomen. It runs vertically from the navel down to the pubis and sometimes up to the  top of abdomen. It is usually a side effect of pregnancy for pregnant women.

Linea Negra (Belly Button Line): Long or Short

It’s said the long belly button line of expectant mother which extends all the way up to the top of tummy means boy while the short line which stops at your belly button means girl.

Linea Negra (Belly Button Line): Thin or Thick

The thin belly button line of mother-to-be generally means boy while the thick means girl.

My daughter had a thick line from sternum to pelvic (bikini line) and she had a girl. She is pregnant now with no line and ultrasound says it’s a boy though she carries high with high heart beats

It's true. It went all the way up to my tummy with my son and only to my belly button with my daughter.

I don't trust this wives tale for guessing baby's gender. I only trust the ultrasound and amniocentesis.

My linea nigra extends all the way up to the top of tummy and I'm carrying a boy. Right!

it's right for me. I have a thick line and got a girl, I want to have a baby boy, but I still have a thick line this time, I hope this just fun.

I got very thick but not too long line and it's disappeared now. I have a girl.

It's really accurate. I have a long and thin belly button line when I conceived my first son.
