I need a fetal nickname for our little zygote!! ***ETA-We chose one***
December 6, 2012 at 2:34 PM

 Our really dislike saying "It" even though that's what the little being is until he/she develops. I wanted to be silly and use "zygote" but DH said it makes him think of a goat, which makes him think the kiddo will come out with a goatee (which would be horrible if we have a girl)....

  DH wants to use poppy seed, but it's too overused. I want something different that could be used for a girl or a boy.

  Any ideas??

***ETA*** Thank you Audreesmama, we have chosen Ziggy.
   DH liked it because of Ziggy Stardust (David Bowie)!

Thanks everyone for all the great replies. I guess poppy seed wasn't as overused as I thought...

    *Shrugs* Mine were both Ziggy the Zygote haha. I'm not very creative. 

    My DH called them belly beans, which I think sounds gross haha.

     My sister's son's nickname is Jude Bug (his name is Jude). He gets called Bug sometimes, so it's out for us. It's cute though!
