Or how do you refer to it?
I currently refer to it as "the fetus" which people seem to find amusing. I would probably call it "the baby" if I was talking to someone I didn't know well though.
cpaquette07:Too funny - DH refers to it as "Cletus the Fetus" but most of the time it's just "baby".
That is hilarious. Also, a PP mentioned calling the baby a "he" even though they don't know the sex of the baby yet. I've caught myself doing that, too, but I don't know if it's instincts, or the fact that every other living being in my house is a "he" (Husband, dog, cat), so that's just the pronoun I'm used to.

This. I call it baby or gummybear- this is what it looked like in first u/s.
sdb421:My almost 3 year old twins, named him "Bubble Guppy" which is a TV show on NickJr. So, for now he is being referred to as Bubble Guppy...ha.
This is too cute.
I called it the baby or sometimes "it" and my husband gets mad. Husband calls it baby boy since he is so sure it's a boy. Mom calls it pumpkin.
My dad just joked that name since we learned it's probably a boy. It stuck...it's funny. Even if the sex changes we'll still probably call it Fred.
I tried some random cute names early on... but we've pretty much just turned to Baby. I've noticed H always says "he" when refering to Baby (we're team green), but I haven't noticed if I do or not.
We call it "Olive." We did IVF and on the day of the embryo transfer, the embryos were shown on the screen. They looked just like a cocktail olive to me.
Sometimes I call it "the Alien" when in jest.
After 7 years of no ovulation...BFP#1 10/24/11 ~ EDD 6/29/12 ~ Natural m/c 11/2/11BFP#2 2/3/12 ~ Alice born 9/26/12
We started calling it Zeno after a name in DH's family tree that we knew we would never ever use. Then my MIL told us she wasn't a fan of the name Emmett (wasn't even one we were considering, haha) and then she attached that to the front of Zeno, making it Emmett Zeno, aka EZ.
SO, long story short we are calling it little EZ :)
P.s. wedon't even know boy or girl yet, but it will probably stay EZ until born
