Britnpat:It makes me sadto call it "it", can't explain my feelings, that's what happens when your preggers, oh well.
^^ thisss.. it just feels so impresonal if i call MY baby an IT... its gender is already predetermind even if we dont know it, and its a human just like us and i sure dont like being called an it >.< ( i call my baby "baby")
I say "the little peanut" a lot.
But Ive also been saying he. My doctor took an educated guess.
He asked if we want to find out the sex in general. We said yes. He said its too soon to tell but if I had to guess Id say boy. So we shall see. Cant confirm for at least another 7-8 weeks but I can't help but to say "he" here and there!
Ive also said baby.
I don't really mind calling the baby 'it'. We didn't set out for a nickname, but the baby "earned" one. My husband's nickname is ____ie Bear, so what caught on for the baby is "gummy bear". I'm sure I fit into the protective Mama Bear category too, so it all works. :P Just a little bear family.
Laparoscopic cyst removal and LEEP 09/2009BFP 10/31/2012 - Emily arrived 07/02/2013!
I have been calling baby biscuit here lately!
We've been calling ours "Nibbler" in reference to the Futurama character who can eat anything and everything because I was literally hungry ALL THE TIME the first 2 weeks or so after we found out. :)
I can't explain why, but I didn't like calling the baby "It" either. It felt too impersonal. Somehow, giving it a temporary name makes me feel more bonded to it? Maybe I'm weird, but I like having a name for it. :)
gamergirl522:SIL and my brother call theirs "Perry"... short for Parasite...
DH calls it our little alien sometimes. We also watched Prometheus the night before I got my BFP.
haha yes!! I posted mine before I saw this!! But yes, my thoughts exactly :)
Woops! Didn't hit the right button. Definitely meant to quote the person that is also calling her baby Squishy.
