I have been searching for an answer to this as well because I am pregnant (30 weeks) and have the same thing... Please let me know if you have found any info, I will continue to search and if I find anything I will keep you posted. Helen Chapman ( I am 8 months pregnant and about 4 moths along I started getting a dark line all the way down the middle of my belly from just under my breasts all the way to the bottom of my belly. This is very common, healthy, and normal. Therefore, getting a dark ring around your naval might have something to do with the same thing. Yes it is very common, about 40% of women get it. It is called the linea nigra (black line)
