Unborn Baby Nicknames

(94 Posts)

Just wondering what everyone calls their unborn babies? I'm struggling to think of something cute/fun other than what we called DS & don't want to use 'it'! Any suggestions?

I never gave my bump a NN but a friend called hers Peanut. Another one called theirs Lentil, which is now their DSs middle name.

Beanie, it is not our son's middle name!

Ours is Flump. I'm due on Monday, and so far am struggling to imagine calling her anything else hmm

We won't actually call her Flump, obviously grin

Our dd was called Derek!

AnneH656 Thu 27-Sep-12 19:58:11

This one kept poking me with his elbow so we called him Smouse- after Slap ma Elbow rapper from Angry Boys...

Tony!! That way it's unisex

Dc1 was Bug, this one is Button smile

DS was Weeble. DC2 is Widget.

Dd was bump, ds was baby, dc3 is tadpole.

Pea. When we discovered Pea was a boy, it became Mr Pea. Everybody used it, to my delight: "how are you and Pea?"
Flump is fantastic smile

Ds1 was Pugh, ds2 Barney McGrew. The baby I miscarried was Cuthbert. Was quite interesting explaining that one to the hospital chaplain!

Pip! I loved it. He was pip all the way through the pregnancy. I'm 22 weeks on ds2 now but this bump doesn't have a nickname sad

Jeff blush only to my sister and I though!

HaveALittleFaith Thu 27-Sep-12 20:12:38

We haven't quite decided - probably decide after 12 week scan when we can feel more attached but I'm leaning towards Beanie myself. My sister called hers peanut and I had a friend who called hers Buzby. I really don't like Bubs confused

Jojoba1986 Thu 27-Sep-12 20:16:02

How about Flubber? That way my postnatal baby weight could be referred to as Flubber flab! grin

Pascha Thu 27-Sep-12 20:17:32

Flubba the Bubba smile

karatekimmi Thu 27-Sep-12 20:17:40

We had a flump here too!

Humphrey. Shortened to Hump the Bump. Or Humpety.

Homebird8 Thu 27-Sep-12 20:21:47

DS1 was Flake ( as in snowflake). DS2 was Pip and DS3 was Gem.

As Flake didn't make it the first time we were decorating a room for the baby in waiting was for Pip. It was known as the Pip Pen!

Gem was Gem for a few days whilst we thought of a name after he was born smile

OddFrog Thu 27-Sep-12 20:21:47

DS was Ralph. (permanent morning sickness pun) No NN this time round but no terrible symptoms either smile

UnexpectedItemInShaggingArea Thu 27-Sep-12 20:22:28

Pumpkin smile

Niceupthedance Thu 27-Sep-12 20:25:05

Wolfie. And DS has a wolf-based middle name.

Jojoba1986 Thu 27-Sep-12 20:25:37

Just referred to DS as a pickle & suggested we use that for DC2 - DH loves it so I think we have a Little Pickle! grin

Not that we're getting carried away! We only have 36+1 to wait until we meet LP!! wink

Ours was and still is Bean! She is 13 months and its the only name she responds to blush
