Not sure.... I only have one child (a girl), and my line was only below my belly button... Hell, she will be 2 on the 7th and it is STILL there... :?

I never got a line with my daughter but I got one with my son. It doesn't have anything to do with the sex of the baby, though.

I just wish mine would go away! My DD will be 2 on the 7th, and it is STILL there... I've noticed when I am within days of AF, the line gets MUCH darker. :roll:
