linea nigra as a gender prediction

doing some research ,so pl let me know...mine  is not a straight line down the middle. A few inches before my belly button it slants to the right. Then is straight down to my pelvis and i don`t know what i am having..so what type of line do you have and is it a boy or girl?

i think this is a wives tale. i have one that starts at by breasts and goes all the way down to my pubic bone. but below my belly button it shifts over to my left. so they're not even. im having a girl. a friend of mine has the same thing and she's having a boy.

Have had two babies...never had one!  But did check the Chinese Gender predictor, and they were both right for my boys!

I have a linea nigra which goes from my belly button down to my pelvis. I'm having a boy. But, I have never heard of anything about that dark line and the role it plays in deciding gender.

This is my 5th and I never had one before and this time you can barely see it. I mean barely. I see more woman have this that their breasts get darker. I am pretty light most of the time up top and not much difference at all.

The Chinese predictor was right with all my other children but not this one. I am having a boy and the line I do have goes form my belly button all the way down.

I had 2 boys.  Both times, it looked as though I didn't have the linea nigra while I was pregnant...But after I delivered and my belly went back down to it's normal size, I noticed that I did!  I'm 8 weeks postpartum now and have a blackish belly button, too!
