    Just thought I’d update with what we’ve been calling baby #2...

    So far, we’ve been mostly referring to the baby as either Roo or Babyroo or just baby. We’re going to find out the sex early this time though, so hopefully we’ll get to be using their actual name pretty soon (I think in like 3-4 weeks)! If it’s a boy it’s far more likely we’ll continue with Roo for a while since we don’t have a for sure name.

    EDIT: Got the dates mixed up for the gender testing - thought it took longer to get the results back then it does, so we were actually able to find out before then and we’re having .... another GIRL!!

    Exciting about finding out the sex, Annajames!

    We called ours Paddles, because before our first (dating) scan a colleague/friend commented to me how exciting it would be to see baby's little hands and feet and I pointed out that it was way too early for that, and that at that stage baby would still have a tail and paddles for hands.

    Stuck so long she still gets called that from time to time, and she's approaching 1!

    Yes, very! I’m so happy we’re able to do that this time around! I remember feeling so much more connected once I knew what I was having.

    Paddles!! How cute! I definitely still call Violet, Bean, so these pregnancy nicknames stick for us too.

    I LOVE the nickname Roo <3 I kinda wanted to name this baby Rupert and call him Roo but...maybe next time lol

    We're quite boring. We just call him Baby or The Baby, though we did call him Bean for a bit. We are keeping his name a secret from family and friends, so don't want to get in the habit of referring to him by name a whole lot yet, to avoid slip-ups. It's worked so far.

    I don't remember if I had any cutesy nicknames for Cornelia, but with my son, we knew he's going to be an Endymion, so we mostly called him by his name. My youngest was almost exclusively Bambi, though.

    We called 1st dd "Krang" until we found out she was a girl, then we called her Matilda in private but just "the baby" with family and friends as we didn't share her name until she was born. With the 2nd pregnancy we started out calling it "Krang 2: Electric Bugaloo" but discovered we were having twins pretty early, so that fell off. Genetic screening revealed they were both girls around 13-14w so from then on we called them Eglantine "Eggy" and Ermantrude "Trudy" as my family gave me such grief about naming my first Matilda I wanted something they would find even less appealing but still plausible so when we told their real names maybe they would be too relieved to criticize

    This is awesome! And hilarious. Good on you!
    Did it work, were they relieved? Your girls have such stunning names, seriously gorgeous. But I guess people always have their opinions.
