You are pregnant in your second trimester . You are getting dressed and you notice a dark line from your navel down your abdomen. Which answer is incorrect ?
-Increased melanin production is what makes your skin change color during pregnancy. At some point during your second trimester, you may notice a dark brown line running down the middle of your abdomen, between your belly button and pubic area. This line is called the linea alba.
-The linea nigra is the result of fluctuating hormones during pregnancy. One theory is that the hormones cause your body to produce larger amount of melanin (a compound responsible for giving your skin pigment), and this extra pigmentation shows up as a dark pregnancy line on your stomach.
-Soon after your baby is born, the linea nigra should start to fade. In some women, though, it may never completely disappear. And if you get pregnant again, expect to see that line reappear.
-Linea Nigra is a line indicator that you baby is growing to big and you need to watch your food intake . This line seldom goes away after pregnancy.
