Ahh, Roo was my childhood nickname! I loved Roo from Winnie the Pooh! I used to jump up and down going "Roo Roo Roo Roo!"

I was jokingly calling him/her "the zygote" for a while, as in "the zygote and I are STARVING." My husband works in medicine and he can be such an anatomy geek, so we thought this was hilarious.

Then he pointed out that now it's really a fetus, but I didn't like calling my baby "the fetus" because it sounded creepy, plus let's face it, "zygote" is a much funnier word than "fetus."

Lately I've been catching myself calling it "the kid" but more and more also by the boy name that's our current #1 pick. Somehow with each passing day, referring to the baby as him or by the boy name feels increasingly right.

Jöran for the first name (=George in Swedish-- my mother's family is of Swedish descent and his paternal grandmother was 1st generation Swedish) and either Sebastien or Raphael for a middle name.

DH called ds 'the lil fella' while he was in utero. We didn't really know he was a boy at that point though. We haven't called this one anything so far, but I'm sure something will sound right sooner or later.

That's so sweet. How do you pronounce his name?
