I have a very, very mild line going from my belly button up for about an inch or so. I really have to strain to see it, but it's there. How can I tell whether this is a stretch mark or the linea negra?
Would you be too embarrassed to post a picture? lol. I don't want to be a weirdo, but I really can't give my honest opinion without seeing it. Most likely, though, it's Linea Negra. Mine is darker above my belly button than it is below. Also, if it's not red and/or shiny, then it's most probably not a stretch mark.
