Linea Nigra to predict baby's gender
« on: February 21, 2011, 02:46:13 pm »

Linea nigra (Latin for "black line") is a dark vertical line that appears on the abdomen during about three quarters of all pregnancies.

If the Linea nigra only runs from navel downwards, the baby will be a girl. But if the dark line crosses the navel up to the xiphoid process (chest), the baby is said to be a boy.

Any of this true?

^ Sis, I found the info from a pregnancy book that I am reading, "What to expect when you're expecting".
It's listed as one of the fun ways to guess the baby gender.  :)

Mine rin is a very dark line from chest to pubis area....though my ultrasound says it's 80% girl.
Ahaha~ I wonder if this pamahiin is true for me.

sa pamahiin na to,
di naman ako naniniwala,
ang alam ko kapag medyo dark skin mo
malaki chance na meron ka nito,
pero pag maputi di masyado makikita yung line na yan.
may explaination nito yung mga doctors e,
nakalimutan ko lang..ahaha ;D

Yeah this is true, darker skinned women tend to get this more and it appears darker and longer daw. Got this from books and research online.

Although my line is pretty long as well, and true enough, I am expecting a boy. :)

This is not true for me. Girl kasi si baby. Ang haba ng linea nigra ko and very dark pa.  Then around my navel may dark patch din so mukha tuloy mata yung nakausli kong pusod.  :D

Did a quick search on the internet and it doesn't seem like this old wives' tale holds any truth (based on various experiences of mothers).

I dd not have a linea nigra by the way, ended up having a boy. :)
