When did yours disappear after childbirth? Or didn't it?

I can't remember exactly when it went. DD is 20 months and it's definitely long gone. I'd guess it went sometime between 6 months and a year.

I can't remember exactly but it was only a matter of weeks for me and mine was pretty dark. The weird thing is, this pregnancy there's no sign of one at 33wks. Go figure...

Just read your post and checked if mine was still there and it isn't grin. DD is 8 months. Not sure when it went but I remember it hanging around for quite a whole so think it must have been sometime in the past 2 months.

I still have mine (quite faintly) and DD is 17mo

Mine went both times by 12 months.

DD is six months and it's still there but quite faint. It has faded significantly in the past few weeks. And not that you asked but my aureolas have also recently returned to their normal size and colour. Yes, I'm aware that may be TMI.

My DS is 7 weeks and mine is still there, I am sure with my 1st DD it had disappeared within a couple of weeks

DS is 9 weeks and the line is stiil the same. I can't remember when it disappeared with the other 2 dcs. But since I got pregnant when they were 16 months old, it must have been before then.

My baby is nearly 7 months. Its still there, faint but def still there !

Nine months and I can still see it.
It was quite late to arrive though.

Is it a hormonal thing?

3 months and it's faded quite a lot but still there.

stretch marks on the other hand, still going strong sad

Mine didn't appear until immediately after I gave birth (weirdly) and it slowly started to disappear at about 4 months, totally gone by about 6 months

Sleepysheepsleeping Sun 13-Jul-14 09:56:05

Mines pretty much gone and dd3 is 8 months. The saggy stomach is another matter!

You can sort of scrape it off after a while-a couple if months I think.

About four months I think. Definitely gone now - DD is 11 months.
