The line is called "linea nigra" and is a normal line of pigmentation that forms from the pubic area to your belly button (and sometimes higher). Some, but not all women get this during pregnancy and it is usually seen by darker skinned women. It is caused by elevations in estrogen, progesterone and alpha-melanocytic stimulation horomone- all horomones your body is producing in large quanties while you are pregnant. The line will go away towards the end of your third trimester or after you deliver. Hope that helps and good luck! Christine RN

What structure is lateral to the stomach?

When you say something is lateral from something else, it means "farther from the mid-line". if something is medial to something else it means it is closer to the mid-line. The mid-line runs right down the middle of your body to your belly button. eg. the eyes are lateral to the nose or the nose is medial to the eyes Therefore the spleen is lateral to the stomach and the stomach would be medial to the spleen.
