    Hi girls

    I noticed a dark line running from below my ribs all the way down past my belly button and googled it and apparently it's an old wives tale that if it stops at your belly button it's a girl but if it runs up past your belly button and up higher towards your ribs it's a boy!

    Does anyone know the sex of their baby and have this line I can see if it could be true?

    Thanks!

    The line itselfnis totally normal, and as far as I know most women get it. Mine runs all the way to my rib cage, however won't know for another week or so ifnits a bit or girl...

    My baby's skull shape says girl, the way I am carrying apparently says boy. I think it's all just, as you put it, old wives' tales!

    Thanks for your reply love87.
    I was just so curious to see if anyone had this.

    I have done a few wives tale test and so far have 2 saying boy and 2 saying girl so just goes to show!

    Wishing you the best of luck over the next few weeks. So exciting!
