I know this is a silly question but I am pregnant for the second time and want to be able to refer to the bump/baby as something other than bump/baby. for the first one we called it blobby for the 9 months, it worked quite well but blobby was born with a heart defect and had open heart surgery when 7mths, so now I am paranoid about calling this one blobby in case the worst happens. All very silly really but wanted some help to call it something! Thanks

Called mine Matilda Jane cos its a generic family name in our family. Mammy called all of us Matilda when we were born until she had names for us. No idea why at all. She still refers to us all as Matilda when she cant think of names (including my brother) .

after reading about celebrities and the daft (IMO) names they are giving to their kids, in particular Gwyneth paltrow and Apple, we were sounding out diff foodstuffs as a name for our bump. We settled on Paneer (Indian cheese) then when we found out we were expecting twins, the second became Muttar (peas). They are now 7 weeks old and still get called paneer and muttar sometimes!

My mum called mine bean but we specifically had a scan to find out the sex. When we did we picked a name and we called the bump dd's real name.

When I was pg with ds1 my brother nicknemed my bump Dave. It stuck and 'baby Dave' was 4mths old when my mrother mil discovered he was calle Ellis!

DS2 was called baby Lauren as thats what ds1 called it. I got my hopes up that he was right but he was a boy called Cory.

My DH's cousins son nicknamed DS Sherbert and that stuck as we didn't know the sex.

Am due tomorrow with DS2 and called him pod until we had decided on the name (which is Bailey btw)

My friend called her bump bambino, which I thought was cute...

First baby was Norman (dunno how that started and he turned out to be a she) and second baby was Baby Two!

well i know the sex of my baby so im not much help really as we call him his real name.

but how about BUN (as in bun in the oven)
or i think CHICK is quite cute.

My granny referred her bump (my mum) as "Lionel"

My SIL called hers Muffin which I thought was cute.

My bump was christened "Thumbelina" by my dds when it was the size of their thumbs - it's an awful lot bigger than that now but it has stuck! (They experimented with "Appleina" and "Orangina" at various stages too but still call it Thumbelina!)

our first was "Babberoo"

We still refer to this one as "the baby" at the mo (15wks) no doubt we will come up with something a little more original soon!

My partner and I called our bump Bambino too hence my mumsnet name!!

dizzymama Thu 12-May-05 22:25:55

Dd was 'Bob', mainly because my hubby really wanted to say the line 'You're not at all a girl then Bob?' when she was born!!
