This whole thread cracks me up :D
Name my non existent fetus as well, though at this point I am feeling like I will never get pregnant, but maybe I am meant to have a HJJune baby
Potential nicknames: Peanut, jelly bean, sprout, various types of seeds (watermelon, pumpkin, strawberry, etc), wiggle worm, squirt, squiggle, cupcake, tater, marshmallow, bean, sprinkle, spud, snip. Zazzles.
Those are all names for actual fetuses (feti?). This needs to be a name for a "theoretical" fetus.
Not to get boring when delightful things like SPROG are in the mix, but is FB taken yet? For Future Baby? Oh, right..Facebook. Duh.
Naming something that will exist in the future is a bit harder ;)
Eggie? Eggbert? Rolling with the egg thing - Sheldon? Which leads me back to Zazzles. Because your eggs (which will become said fetus) are so zazzy :)
Will Sprog (for example, not that you have to choose it) eventually get a new nickname once (s)he comes into existence, or will Sprog be the nickname until birth?
Good question, Kristi. I think time will have to tell. I think I might switch because I'd be fearful of m/c'ing and then having to come up with a new nickname.
I think I'm going to go with Sprog. Reasoning ... I like the sound of it AND wikipedia says it can mean the following:
a slang term for a child - well, yeah, but that's kinda boring
Sprog (software), a graphical tool to build Perl programs by plugging parts together - AWESOME I know Perl! And plugging parts? That's totally a sperm & egg reference thingy, yeah
a plant that takes the place of grass on the fictional planet Snaiad. Even better!
nickname of Mark Williams (snooker player) Who?
Aniseed jelly button as found in assorted licorice Whaaa?
