Linea Nigra

Linea nigra?!

We know that feeling when you admire your glowing, gorgeous bumpin’ body, when suddenly a dark line in the middle of your belly appears out of nowhere!
Say hello to your linea nigra, aka your pregnancy line!

The funny thing is that you probably had that line before, but because it’s usually light in color, you never noticed! Once you hit the fifth month or so, the line turns a brownish shade + comes out to play. Why does it appear? We don’t know for sure, but some believe it’s related to your changing hormones. The melanocyte-stimulating hormone in particular is thought to be the biggest contributor. It’s also the one responsible for your darkening nipps during pregnancy. There’s nothing you can do about the linea nigra. It’s totes natural and will fade shortly after pregnancy, so enjoy it while it lasts!
