Do you have an affectionate name for your baby? Not what you're actually going to name him or her, but something else?

My husband has always called me Mary bear so the baby is "bear cub." A friend of mine referred to her baby as "Pickles" until it was born.

We don't have a name or nickname. Poor baby. I just refer to him as the baby or your baby brother, when talking to DS.

I either call her by her name (Olivia) or I call her sweetpea. The boys call her sissy or Princess Livy. DH either calls her by her name or says the baby.

We still have not decided on a name although we have a couple in mind. I tend to give out nicknames after baby comes, so for now its just baby girl.


SETHSGIRL------I love the princess livy!!! how sweet of your boys...That is going to be one loved and adored sissy!!!

He's just baby brother, since we're usually talking about him to dd.

When I was pregnant with her, she was speck, since she was a speck on the screen in my first ultrasound.

She doesn't have a nickname... When I was pregnant with DS he was called monkey but DH and I thought something like that would only confuse him... he is three and we didn't want him thinking we were going to have a monkey. So we just call her by her name... Charlie.

We don't have a name set in stone so I just usually say sister/sissy.

When I was like 6 weeks along my mom started calling the baby "Peanut" to the kids, so that name stuck and they still refer to him as Peanut more then his name.

I call him Fetus to my sister while back and her and I call him that a lot still. When Hubby and I couldn't agree on a name I threatened to name him "Peanut Fetus (last name)"

It has been Zoltar from the beginning. I did up one of our ultrasound pictures with baby wearing a turban and mustache as part of the joke.

Mostly, I just call him baby. However, while my mom was in town, he developed a short term nickname. My daughter loves to play a game where she assigns everyone superpowers and names. So, for a few days, baby became known as 'baby blast!'

We say "baby j" because we don't know the gender ... So j is the first letter of our last name.. So baby J for now

Ty's nickname is Bug. It will most likely stay that way even after he is born. On my registry you can choose a name.. Ours is Baby "Bug" Greenfield.. Most all of the shower presents we have received so far has Jennifer, Grant and Baby Bug on the card.
