Lima Bean, and to this day 99% of the time we call her “The Bean”

I’m not totally sure she knows her real name!

Baby Bear. I’m Mama Bear and he’s Papa Bear. We had those nicknames BEFORE I was pregnant(we both snore.), so it’s just cute to have Baby Bear coming. Plus Baby Bear helps because we’re Team Green and we like to call him/her a name, not the baby.

I’m boring, I just call her “the baby.” I’m weirded out by calling her by her actual name, I feel like it will jinx things.

I called her The Parasite. FH did not appreciate that.

My friend called her in-utero baby Elvis or “Baby E” because her sister’s daughter is named Presley and they thought it was funny to have “Elvis Presley”. When he was born, they quickly switched it to Conner.

Oh, we called DD tons of things.. Peanut, Porkchop, Booger, Dolly, Munchkin, etc. We still call her different nicknames from time-to-time, but mostly it’s “Boog”, now.

Future Brother-In-Law and Future Sister-In-Law had differnt names for their babies–first pregnancy was ‘Soccer Ball’, and the second was ‘Fifa’. Can you tell they’re soccer/football fans? LOL!

We call him our little alien, due to on the ultra sound the face pic he looks like a little alien.  LOL DH doesn’t really like that but I still call the baby our little alien.  He has been little munchkin and little one so far

Wombat because they’re fiesty, but we also had Moose, who will always be Moose.

“The berry” because one of our friends asked during my first trimester when I was going to start showing and I said “She’s only the size of a raspberry” and it stuck! We even had one of my showers, a co-ed shower, with a cake that said “The Berry”

I called mine “bump”. That is what she was and she rarely moved while in the womb. She was just a bump on a log.

We called her Lemon, though strangely as soon as she was born we jettisoned that nickname for a dozen others.  Right now she is Bunny or Bean or Bunnybean or Beanieboo 🙂

@ohheavenlyday: That is too funny. I called mine Parasite up until 6 months, because thats when they say it doesn’t necessarily need me. Now it is just the Baby.
