Ours is Pip cos when we found out it was the size of an apple pip

DD1 was Spawn. DD2 was Spawn 2. We are imaginative like that.

Binky, named by ds4 when he was crawling over my stomach after I got the BFP. He didn't know I was pg.

Mexican jumping bean (or just Bean for short) - as at both the 12 and 20 week scans she just wouldn't keep still smile

Torquil. And after 4.5 months, Myrtle. In case it was a girl. My DP's first child was called Lord Bufton Tufton while in utero. He clearly has aristocratic aspirations!

The Owlett. OH is Al, which my baby cousin pronounced Owl, as he is now known by my family, and since I'm having a boy, the mini-owl has become Owlett!

Great name BumpyBecs, I have a Toby!

Melliebobs my bump is pip too, for the same reason! I think it might stick a bit after he's born too

DS's bump was nicknamed Bear by DH which stuck and wound up on his birth certificate as a middle name. I'm worried that he's been calling this one Harlequin since the 20 week scan, kicked up a notch by seeing Batman Live which has a character named Harley Quinn.

Deesus Sun 31-Jul-11 19:15:22

My bump is nicknamed Zeberdee as I managed to convince DH that I had my heart set on that name whether we had a boy or a girl grin

Becaroooo Sun 31-Jul-11 19:16:12

ds1 was "junior" and ds2 (had to have lots of scans so knew he was a boy) was called by his name from early on

Phoenix Sun 31-Jul-11 19:17:28

My cousin is calling hers Baby Elvis grin

MamaLaMoo Sun 31-Jul-11 19:32:28

Wriggle as she doesn't stop moving and had the sonographer in giggles as she tried to measure her at 20 weeks.

First bump was Sparky as she was a little spark of life.

Mine is Pops - shortened from Poppy, which is a shorter version again of poppy seed - the same size as her heart apparently at about 10 weeks.

Although now we have settled on a name for her - Bess - we are increasingly calling her Bessie Boo..

Darnsarfupnorf Mon 01-Aug-11 00:38:46

squeek because she looked like a rat on the first scan picture

its spelt like that because thats how the thorntons lady spelt it when she wrote it on a santa for OH...numpty!

ChunkyMonkeyMother Mon 01-Aug-11 01:06:23

We called ours "Tink" because it was a little tinker! Although a friend of mine INSISTED on calling it Tinkerbell, even though I told her we didn't know what we were having, she even went as far as to have a little plaque made for a door - turned out to be a boy, I did warn her!

kri5ty Mon 01-Aug-11 07:39:25

we call ours nugget... as for some strange reason all i wanted to eat ws chicken nuggets!

Moffit Mon 01-Aug-11 07:48:55

We call ours Peanut, because of the size when we started referring to it. I think its nice to have a nickname instead of calling it baby or IT?!

VikingLady Mon 01-Aug-11 13:44:14

Proto-bump, and not big enough to be a bump yet. Peebee for short!

Karmanna Mon 01-Aug-11 13:47:21

My bump is called Duckie, because when we went for the first scan it looked like the baby had a beak!! We'll be finding out the sex at theend of this month, but I have a feeling Duckie will probably stick as a pet name even after the birth, as we've kind of got used to it now. smile
