    Hey!

    I was just reading through some posts and realised what a wide variety of nicknames people have for their babs!!
    I call mine 'Capbaby' (because of the first scan! :) )

    What does everyone nickname theirs? Would LOVE to hear some!!

    We nicknamed ours 'Bug' mainly because after 3 years of trying I thought I had caught a bug, not a baby :)

    Pip :D

    We spent about a year thinkin about what we would call baby when we found out we were expecting, and Pip was the one we liked the most :D

    Mil loves it cos she is gonna be Granny Smith (yes, Smith us our surname) so he is Granny Smith's Pip :)

    Love the Granny Smith's Pip! thats really cute.

    We call ours Pickle, its a pet name that my DH calls our nieces and nephews (and sometimes me) so it seemed quite fitting rather than just 'it'.

    We call ours 'Quenelle' because in culinary terms it's basically a blob... And that's what we immediately thought of when we had our early scan at 8 weeks... She was, at that stage, just a little blob... And we thought 'Quenelle' sounded a bit more endearing than Blob!! Lol :)

    I like to call mine 'Bubs', 'Munchkin' or 'the bump' - no real reason behind it other than its nicer than 'it' and we're so attached already that its nice to have an endearing term :) x

    I say bubs for mine, my sister calls him bob, and my in laws call him butterbean. We all call him 'he' even though we don't know the gender!! On paper I call him Bump, and always sign cards from the three of us now - 'Love from X, Y & Bump'

    I don't have any cute stories to go with mine, but my nicknames were seriously restricted cos I use most of them for my cats - baby, bubba, honeypie, pumpkin, etc!!

    We decided very early on for the names for ours but before the 20 week scan we used to call AJ "Rocky" as we had previously lost our little bean and after 2 lots of bleeding and 4 scans we thought he was a fighter. We have carried it on by getting him a babygro with boxing gloves on it just so we remember how he fought to stay with us. xxx

    I call mine bubba, OH refers to baby as "bump". I also call mine heshe! This is better than" it" and as we don't want to know the sex it's a mix of both!
