Hi everyone!
For those that havent seen my previous post I'm 24, have a 13mth old baby boy and my DH & I are have just started TTC # 2.
I came off the mini pill a few weeks ago, no withdrawal bleed, then about 1-2 weeks later got 6 days of OPK's (until today when it was negative). So i believed that I was ovulating over that time, did the BD thing and my fingers are now crossed in the long 2WW. I guess I am anywhere from 5-7DPO approximately.
When I feel pregnant with DS I got a linea nigra (line on the belly) before I even got a BFP, I was only just over 3 1/2 weeks.. That was definately the first sign I had of being pregnant.
So I noticed this afternoon my line has appeared again (unless it was lightly there still from the 1st pregnancy :s). I got my DH to see if I was seeing things and he said it could see it faintly too. Just not sure if its always been there and only just noticed it or if its coming back..
I was just wondering if anyone else has ever found this before they got a BFP?
I don't want to get my hopes up, but with that & a few other signs I can't help but think I'm pregnant... probably all in my head

What do you think?

I have never heard about this but wanted to welcome you to TTC again! Hopefully you won't have to stay here long and get your bfp soon! In the mean time I look forward to getting to know you! My husband and I have been trying to conceive our first sticky bean for a long 1 1/2 years now. We are so ready!! Good luck to you and KUP when you start testing!!

No clue on this. With me, I didn't get a line until closer to 7 months. And it's completely gone now. Good luck!

With my DD my line didn't darken until I was around 6 months or later. Good Luck I hope you get your BFP.

Hi ladies!
My belly line is becoming more noticeable so I took a HPT today (i think im around 9-10DPO) & I got a faint BFP!!
Hoping tomorrow the HPT line will become darker Fingers crossed!

Paige I've read that it is a sign of early pregnancy. And since you got a faint positive I'd say that's pretty promising. Congratulations!!!

That's great! I hope your BFP line gets darker!! I never got a line with any of my pregnancies, but everyone has their own signs that gives them a heads up about pregnancy
