its called linea nigra and some women get it in pregnancy. Its heredetary so its likely other women in your family have had it too. Apparently its more prevalent on darker skinned women than lighter. Its due to heightened estrogen which also darkens nipples etc. What can i say...another lovely side effect of pregnancy, lol!

usually doesn't appear until 2nd tri. it starts off as a faint white line and then in 2nd tri becomes a dark line and can remain for a while after baby is born.

I don't have one, but I did when I was pg with my DD. It was from my bikini line to my belly button. Some people get them all the way up, and some don't get them at all. It's called the "linea negra", translated as the "black line". It's to do with pregnancy, and I think it's just your pigments changing in your skin; like your areola and nipples may get darker during pg, and you may find you get what they call "pregnancy mask" too, where the pigment in your face changes too and you may get speckles of darker skin on your face. It's just hormones I think. The line disappears after pregnancy
