    Even though I know Im expecting a little boy and have chosen his name I still refer to him as baby or bump. It feels like I cant refer to him by his name as it will be somehow tempting fate or something....if that makes sense? :think:

    aNyone else feel like this?

    We don't know if ours is a boy or a girl yet but I will still call him baby bump as thats his name while he is in mummy's tummy...

    If he turns out to be a girl though I think I'll find it hard to stop saying he/his as I always have and am so sure that he is a boy. How confuzzling.

    Im exactly the same, and have been with all 3 of mine. I actually find it a little creepy when people refer to unborn babies by name!

    We don't have a name as we don't know the sex. I always refer to him as he. A friend told me she was pregnant, I asked whether she wanted a boy or a girl, she said she didn't mind as long as it's healthy. I replied "Everyone says that. Well I mind, I want a girl!" At that moment I had a twinge in my stomach and I thought 'I'm pregnant! It's a boy and I've annoyed it already!!'. That was a week after conception. So if pushed I'd guess I have a boy because of that :rotfl:
    I call him Dragon, Monkey, Bump, Baby, Little Bit, Short Stuff and goodness knows what else! :D OH tends to stick to Baby Bump.

    We know what we are having but are not telling people. And we refer to Baby as Baby or Bean or Baby Bean. Its quite easy to keep it our secret anyways :lol:

    If someone tries to catch me out and says 'Did you say she' or 'Did you call it a he just then?' I say no, I said it :p

    I call mine Ronald - because McDonalds has never tasted so good hahaha

    Every now and again my Mum gets confused and says Roland - so I politely remind her that the baby is NOT the overweight kid off of Grange Hill!!!

    (btw, it will NOT be called Ronald when it's born!!)
