When I was pregnant with DS, DH nicknamed him "Peanut" after seeing him at the first ultrasound. With this pregnancy, we haven't been able to come up with a nickname that we both like.

What are you calling your LO while (s)he's in your belly?

Nothing yet - we're kind of in denial until we know if this will be a sticky.

"Baby Jo" was what we called DS because whether he was a girl or boy, the names both began with "Jo". This time, one name starts with "Jo", and one with "Ja", so we shortened it to "Baby J". It hasn't really stuck yet, as in we don't think of s/he as Baby J, like we did with ds immediately. Lol, whatever

I was talking to my mom Sunday talking about the baby, she was trying to say she, he, it and she said sheit(sounding like shit) omg we laughed so hard. And then she said ww need to find a nickname for this baby. Lol I called my ds monkey, which is his nickname to this day. I don't think I had a nickname for my dd.

We called DD 'beege' throughout her pregnancy (I have no idea why?). So DH started calling this one 'smeege' so we've just gone with that.

DS was "lentil" throughout pregnancy but since he was born his nickname has been "baby deux"--made up by DH, but it's stuck. So so far this new lo has been called "baby deux two." I don't know if it will sick or not, but that's all we've got right now!

It depends on how I feel! Right now? I call it "the parasite". Otherwise, it's "the bean"

So far what we're calling it changes week by week depending on it's size. It was a lentil. Then an olive (which lasted for a week or two) and now a plum. The funny thing is that DW got the time line wrong from a book and insisted for the first 5-6w that each week the babe was a big as a field mouse!

Like chinupchamp through weeks 6-9 I called it "my little parasite."

DW and I are moms to two teens (DD 17 and DS 15) adopted through CAS in 2007 and a toddler (DD 2) born at home in March 2011.

We'll our babies are IVF miracles so we called DD ICSI pixie (icsi stands for intracytoplasmic sperm injection and is said "icksee"). And these two were frozen for 2 years and two months so they are our snowflakes!

Throughout the pregnancy DS was "the bean", but since he was a few days old we've called him "Boo." So, this one is now "Boo 2" (although I think of the spelling more as butu (like tutu) for some reason). lol

Our last name is Ferguson and DH goes by Fergie, so he's been referring to the baby as Fergie 2.0. I'm pretty much doing the same thing as when I was pregnant with DS and just saying the baby.

I think of this one as "Ponyo" after the little fish who turns into a girl.

OMG, I love that movie! (And everything Miyazake has done.) I'm jealous that you came up with such a perfect nickname.

DH has been referring to ours as "the little dude." To which I quickly add, "or dudette." He's one of all boys and I think the idea of a girl is a little beyond his comprehension right now! I'm one of all girls, though, so I guess we balance out...
