I need a fetal nickname for our little zygote!! ***ETA-We chose one***

 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...

My friend called hers gummy bear.
Another friend called hers "lil thing"
And my mom called me the devil because she had morning sickness from the time she got pregnant to the time I was born. I then inherited the nickname "Lil Devil" from my family from then on.
