My son was born on March 5th and I still have my line as well. My first child was born almost six years ago so I do not remember how long it took. It did go away eventually though. :)

with both of my kids I had to wash mine off. A few weeks after delivery it got pretty dry. I just took a Q-tip and some rubbing alcohol and literally washed it off. Even inside my belly button. May seem weird, but I waited 2 months with my first before trying it. So after the 2nd I tried it sooner and it worked like a charm. Good luck!

my baby was born on march 14th and my line is just starting to fade. my daughter was 3 weeks early and it didnt even show up until my 7th month, so it never really got that dark. i didnt notice it until i saw a pic my mom took...i thought she photoshopped it in as a joke!!

the line does go away, I just can't remember how long it took with my 1st! I had my 2nd daughter on March 3rd and still have mine but the top half of it has nearly disappeared and the lower part of the line is fading so I would say within 1-2 months!

I had my little guy on March 5th and still have my line. I know it goes away eventually, because it did with my daughter, I just don't remember how long that took. Sorry.
