Hi Everyone!

I thought this would be rather a cute topic!!

Mine's called Krill. 

When we first got pregnant until the first (6 week) scan, DH called it prawn, but when we went for the scan, and they said how big it was, he said that was too small for a prawn, and the smallest sealife he could think of was a Krill (Whale food!!)

We're now quite attached to the name, and so it's stuck!

What's everyone elses called?

LOL great topic. Ours has several names. We started off calling him/her Peanut because that's what he looked like at the first scan but this has since been changed to 'P' or Peeper (more recently Watermelon after the growth scans!). My family named him BL for Big Lump which then became Lumpy and that has stuck there, whilst my work have christened him Snowy which has also stuck. This came about as my brother and his wife who are also expecting, named their last child on the basis that the intials spelt a name (quite sad really!) so everyone was coming up with ideas for ours and we decided what the hell, why stop at three letters!!

Great idea!!

Once we'd seen our little "petit pois" at the 6 weeks scan that name stuck for a while until I told DH he/she was more like the size of a bean so we then went to "Beanie" .

Since having our 15 week scan and noticing that bubs has grown loads since "Beanie" he/she is now known as "Pickle" for whatever reason!!!

I've been totally unimaginative and call mine Bubs.

When talking about it to my friend she said she called hers Charlie, but as it is the name of my ex husband i didn't want to change mine to charlie lol

Interestingly my Mum and I were having a chat about names - she said " What about Flora?" I too thought instantly of the margerine!

MIne's only a mini-bump so far - it was called 'jellybean' for ages (which DH still calls it) I've taken to referring to it as 'Kevpol' which is me and DH seeing as it's a bit of both of us (also was our first joint email address years and years ago!)

Mind you - got to be careful as my Mum pointed out - her bump was called Polly - my name now! Grandparents claimed it was a nickname so my parents stuck two more on the front which no one ever calls me but it's on all my official docs (even though third name is the real one) It's been a nightmare all my life. So many obstacles...

Mine is intermittently called Humperdink or Marina-Nina
No idea where Humperdink came from, Marina is because of my love of scuba diving and Nina coz my Mum liked it.
Bubs will actually be called neither on arrival  ;-)

We are calling our bump Ping and Pong (twins!).  Feels like a table tennis game going on constantly, they go from one side to the other.  I think Ping (the girl) has come off better with the name than the boy, who is obviously called Pong!

What a fun topic!!

Our little one is called Button!! - Two reasons for this, hubby once found out we were pregnant said ' we're gonna need to earn more buttons' and me well, can't remember the last time I was able to do a button up on my clothes! :) So it just kinda stuck.

Ours is Plinky.  I've absolutely no idea where it came from but it's stuck now and even our families call him that!  Bit worrying as we can't think of a boy's name we like so he may end up being Plinky for a while after he's born too!!

We were totally unoriginal with DD, we called her 'Bump' and still do even though she is 5. I call her baby bump but as she reminds me, she's a big girl now!

This one is 'Dink' - DH's idea, DD loves it and has a lengthy chat with Dink every day.

On the subject of Clover, it's my step-mothers name. We crease up everytime the advert comes on tv....'oh we all love clover...
She's lovely by the way  ;D

What a fab topic!  ;D

When our two were replaced they were immediately christened "tootie and frutie" ... after the sweets.  (long standing Rainbow Crew tradition!)

Tootie stayed but Fruitie didn't make it.  Tootie's name (also known as Toots) stayed with me ... us sometimes ... throughout my pregnancy.

Until ... talking names and Dh being convinced Tootie was a boy decided that his name should be Ernie (he was winding me up big style!) ... or "Little Ern"!

Now if you knew our surname Ernie or Little Ern would make you "laugh/cringe" even more!!!!!!!

FREDDIE arrived but periodically he is still called "Toots" or "Tootie" by the good guys (girls mainly!) and I dread to think that forever more the "lads" will continue to call him "Little Ern"!

Love
Dee
