I have a nickname for the baby already and I just want to make sure i'm not a weirdo.

I'm 12 wks. Pregnant and I call my baby m&m. It's because at six weeks I read a pregancy book that said that the embryo and yolk sac were the size of an m&m and for whatever reason the name just stuck. I'm sure once the baby is born i'll stop calling it m&m but in the meantime I need some way to refer to it besides the baby all the time.

I'm curious to see if anyone else nicknames the baby and also to find out what kinds of nicknames people have....See if they're as weird as mine....

I call nathan monkey butt, or mr.
When I was pregnant, I think I refered to him as "the baby" or "booboo"...I still call him booboo though, once in awhile.
