Whether you are pregnant for the first, third, or twelfth time, it’s hard not to give your baby-in-utero a funny little nickname. Whether you name baby after your #1 food craving or what he looked like at your first sonogram, it’s a fun thing and a cute little way to connect with your baby before you meet.
I took a poll on Facebook to see what mamas-to-be nicknamed their little ones before they were born. Here’s what they had to say …
1. Baby A & Baby B
A classic for parents of twins!
2. Baby Bat
A little fuzzy night owl? Sounds about right!
A friend of mine called her little one “Baby-Baby!” Isn’t it cute?!
A common nickname for that growing little babe!
Probably the most common nickname, due to baby’s shape at the very beginning!
This is what we called our very first daughter, because she was the size of a blueberry when we found out we were pregnant!
Here’s a common nickname for babes before AND after birth!
Doodle Bug, June Bug… the little specimen stealing all your energy!
Another classic name for that growing BUMP in your belly!
This has got to be one of the most unique nicknames! I love it!
Yep, naming your baby after your food cravings!
A funny one, for sure!
14. Gummy Bear
Another one named after an ultrasound photo!
Reminds me of that chubby little mouse in Cinderella!
This is a Nola-style expression for an unexpected gift!
17. Little Monkey
Okay, who HASN’T called their babe a “Little Monkey” at some point?!
Another common pet name for baby!
We called our babes “Peanut” before and after birth!
Here’s one we called my second daughter, Ingrid. It started as “Iggy Pop” then went to “Popper.” Sometimes I still call her that!
Seems like the perfect nickname for a little growing thing!
Hard to believe that your baby is the size of a sprinkle early on!
What started as a bean is beginning to sprout!
Before the baby has legs, he has a tail! Just like a tadpole!
25. The Beebs
I love this one, too! So funny.
