Naming your bump
Giving your bump a nickname is one way to help you bond with your unborn baby. Take a look at our Bounty Community’s creative bump nicknames for inspiration when naming your bump!
Below are some of the cute names Bounty.com mums have given their bumps.
Kris - Our bump was called Mr Bump because it was a boy, I am accident prone, and we like Mr Men!
Stacy - We called ours "Nemo" - one of our first dates was to go and see Finding Nemo at the cinema, and I love the beginning when Marlon cradles the egg in his hands and says he will never let anything happen to him - when we went to our first scan it just made me think of that moment for some reason!
Caz - My bump is called pie baby cos it took ages for me to show. Now have 3 weeks left with another little girl Isabella xx
Katie - Bump is called moo, because the moment we found out she was a girl, we went shopping and got her a cow print snowsuit! Since then she's been Millie moo xxx
Kirsty - mine was bubbles coz that’s what’s seen on the first scan pic
Megan - I called my bump bellybean until about 30 weeks when he became bellymelon because he was too big to be a bean x
Sam - Poppy as when I was looking at pregnancy apps it said baby was the size of a poppy seed, months later poppy has stuck and we still don't know the sex
Kira - Jelly bean, because that's how big and the shape my boy was when I found out I was pregnant
