    Hendrix was referred to as 'the bean' by DH and me throughout pregnancy. We didnt know if he was a boy or girl and at the first u/s (7 week dating u/s) he looked like a bean. The funny thing is that the nickname hasnt stuck since he was born he just doesnt suit the name whereas Hayseed (hope she doesnt mind me talking about her) has called her baby Pup throughout preg and ive noticed that she still calls Thomas pup....

    Our surname is Boyle so we call the baby Astro after the 1980's cartoon character Astro Boy.

    Aidyn was called 'Little Pup'.
    Mainly because DP's nickname was Pup at an earlier stage in our relationship...
    Little-Pup still stuck with Aidyn even for a few months after birth, lol

    Just bubba, but I have been refering to the baby as Declan which is the name we have chosen if it is a boy, so I hope I am not calling a little girl Declan hehhehehe or she might be born with gender identity issues

    DS was The Lemon becuase about the time the students in my summer course noticed that I was pregnant and asked about the baby, I told them it was about the size of a lemon... My sister's DD was "Dusty" b/c we were all offering up the most ridiculous unisex name suggestions we could think of since she didn't know boy or girl, and somehow Dusty stuck. Funny thing is our other sister painted a great rocking horse for niece after she was born and attached the name Dusty to the horse--so niece has been Sophie (her real name) ever since!

    We referred to Gabby as "Little Nobba". Rather odd, I know but my DH gets called "Nobba" (he's a red-head) so we just assumed that the baby would be just like him. She'll probably hate us for it one day

    Our nickname is "Millimetre" ! DH thought of it and it's just stuck, but I love it...I have the ultrasound pic on the fridge, and when I go past I say "Hey Mills!"

    Ours is Baby Cheevs, it's kinda a long story but my car had number plates on it MISCHEEVS (said mischievious) so my nickname is Cheevs, and our dog's name is Chevy and he gets called Cheevs too - so Baby Cheevs kinda just stuck!

    Keenan was 'Jelly' as in bean and baby, but moreso 'coz of what the pictures of foetuses in all the preggo books I was looking at - all jellyish.... LOL!!!

    The new one I have dubbed 'little caviar' so far, 'coz it's not quite big enough to 'name' and I don't wanna get too attatched 'just in case' - sounds terrible, I know....( I just wanna make sure it's all healthy and 'sticks')
