My daughter is 2 years old now and mine is still there. It's not as dark as it was when I got pregnant but it wont go away. I really think that some people are just luckier then others.

That narrow brown line is called linea nigra. Some women get them and some women don't. It is one of the marks of pregnancy. I've got one as well as pregnancy light brown patches on my forehead called "mask of pregnancy." The joys of motherhood.

Ugh. My son is 20 months and I still have mine :-( It's frustrating, and once I asked my fiance if he was turned off by it and he said it's just a sign that I did something wonderful for him in bringing our son into the world. I've heard a lot of things about trying to make it go away, I just always forget to buy them when I'm at the store lol.

I didn't get one but my friend did and that was 3 years ago and she still has it. She told me they don't go away but it might just be her skin.

My kids are 10 and 14 and I found that the stuff that you put on your scars work great to make it so light I am VERY pale so mine was very noticeable and after a tube of it you can't even see it. My sister used a cream From Dollar tree of Vitamin E and hers is lighter. You can try it first and see it is cheaper. Hope this helps

I heard that sometimes it doesn't go away, and that some people have it really light forever, and others i heard can take up to a year to go away.
