Why I'm Not Pregnant {and a WINNER}

Reason Number 3,452
on why I am not currently pregnant with Baby #2:


Because I like to be able to tie my own shoes.
and breath.
and sleep.


and people who are only 4'11 should not have to
birth 8 pound babies.

UPDATE: that scar on my tummy is from a scary mole I had to get surgically removed while 5 months pregnant--lovely.

Bahahahahahaha! I LOVE your reasoning. But, Hey! At least your stomach didn't look like a wild banshee took to it ;D

I'm 4'11 too and I was barely able to walk when I hit my 8th month. haha

Ok, good reasons! But you must know that you are probably the MOST adorable pregnant woman I have ever seen! You are gorgeous and your perfect little prego body is just too beautiful!
I am not having any more babies because when I get prego I get a terrible disease called intrahepatic cholestasis of pregnancy. Its miserable, and the biggest symptom is terrible non stop itching everywhere! :(
Ive had 3 babies, endured that terrible disease everytime. It was totally worth it! LOL But I DO NOT want to go through it again! :) Im done! haha

ahhhhhhhh you're SOOOo flippin cute! That belly is like, the ONLY place you gained weight...LUCKY!!! Every other piece of you is still bitty! I love pregnant bellies...I miss mine, but definitely in no rush for baby #2 either!

 
At March 12, 2011 at 9:56 AM , Blogger Ashley @ Little Miss Momma said...

Just for clarification, I gained a whopping 42 pounds--HOLY COW! and it went EVERYWHERE--my legs just don't look as big as they really were because my tummy was so HUGE! It's amazing I could stand up.

 
At March 12, 2011 at 10:06 AM , Blogger gin said...

I too am in no rush to get knocked up again. My stomach still flaps in the wind...when that's all cleared up maybe I'll consider it...

You make a lovely preggo, btw.

 
At March 12, 2011 at 10:11 AM , Blogger Danielle Bartran said...

I'm guessing you've heard it a million times but you are ALLLLL BELLY!

And I'm jealous! I'm 30+weeks now and you couldn't even tell...(I mean I can) but most people don't realize it or are completely shocked when I say I'll be having a baby in 10 weeks. I want a big huge round belly....it's just taking SOOOO LONG! So I think you're lucky & look wonderful with that huge belly.

 
At March 12, 2011 at 10:26 AM , Blogger Autumn said...

Oh my gosh. You are so little and your poor tummy got so big!

 
At March 12, 2011 at 10:27 AM , Blogger Jill@Barnes Yard said...

Ughhhhh, I am 5'0", 38 weeks preggo and I swear my baby must weigh 15 pounds! I can't breathe, sleep, eat, bend over, or move!

oh wow! you still look gorgeous even preggo but yeah...i can't wait to have kids one day but i def want to skip the preggo part. is that possible? ;)

 
At March 12, 2011 at 10:45 AM , Blogger Mindie Hilton said...

Oh you looked great but I understand how you feel. BTW I also know how you feel with the spots. I just finished my 10th biopsy to remove dangerous spots. No fun. I have one that I am not looking foward to pointing out to the doc since it is well bicini line area, nice. lol

Awww! I think you look amazing! So cute! :)

Girl...that is a gorgeous tummy! Be proud of what that beautiful 4'11 body of yours can do! :)

Oh woa! Yeah you were allll belly though girly. You still looked gorgeous!

 
At March 12, 2011 at 11:40 AM , Blogger BC said...

YES!!!! I love another momma who isn't afraid to show off all her pregnant belly glory! All 5 ft. 3 of me pushed out almost 9 pounders too....TWICE. I think you should go for round 2!

Now my question is how did your tummy stay so nice and tan? GORGEOUS!

Back in the day, I posted my entire bump timeline here:

Love the photos. And how healthy you look in them. I can't wait to look like that. Though I understand why you don't want to again.

 
At March 12, 2011 at 12:20 PM , Blogger hotpants™ said...

I looked pretty similar both times except I've got a few inches on you. I'm 5'5.

Oh! SO GORGEOUS!!!
how many babies do you realistically want to have?
Ariel is enough for me lol

 
At March 12, 2011 at 1:06 PM , Blogger Julie said...

Yay, I won! I'm SO excited! And by the way, I think you look amazing!

 
At March 12, 2011 at 1:21 PM , Blogger Andrea Hale said...

I randomly came across your blog and now added you to my list. :) Love your ideas! Thought this was funny because I am lucky enough to be the same height and even more lucky to have 8 pound babies too! Ugh, it's not very fair if you ask me. lol P.S. I'm on #3..call me crazy! :)

 
At March 12, 2011 at 1:22 PM , Blogger Sadie Jane said...

Really Ashley!?...4'11!! Holy mother I can't even imagine!! You are a doll for pregnant as always!! I don't blame you girlfriend pregnancy is flippin hard stuff but all so worth it!

 
At March 12, 2011 at 2:05 PM , Blogger jamie @ kreyv said...

You know what's not fair, though? You still look totally cute and skinny. I mean really, look how little your bum stayed through your pregnancy!

 
At March 12, 2011 at 2:46 PM , Blogger Shahny said...

You totally look gorgeous!! I dont believe that the 42 pounds went everywhere. And even if it really did (lol) you have the cutest lil preggo belly. I love it! You must have Baby #2 pronto :)

 
At March 12, 2011 at 2:50 PM , Blogger Lindsay said...

Congrats to the WINNER! OH MY GOSH Ashley, you are the cutest preggo girl EVER!

Ashley, your tummy was HUGE! I just stated the obvious...but I think you'd look cute pregnant.

Just Better Together

I had no idea you were teeny tiny like me! I am also 4'11", here is a link to when I was 30 weeks with my second! Way bigger the second time around so I don't blame you for waiting!! http://bigsislilsislove.blogspot.com/2010/02/oh-my.html

Holy Watermelon Smuggler!! Now that is a BIG beautiful belly! I'm a new follower and love your wit and honesty...you make me smile daily and I look forward to your new posts! Thank you and keep them coming! xoxo

 
At March 12, 2011 at 5:06 PM , Blogger Erin said...

I was big like that pregnant too! I am 5'6 and was constantly being asked if I was due any day now at 6 months. Then if I was having twins. Baby 1 was 8lb 13oz and baby 2 was 8lb 10.5oz. The worst, no maternity shirt was long enough the last two months of my pregnancy. I had to go out and buy the super long tanks from Old Navy, they were the only thing that covered my massive belly.

 
At March 12, 2011 at 5:11 PM , Blogger Cindy Bultema said...

What fun, beautiful pictures. Thanks for sharing! :)

 
At March 12, 2011 at 5:34 PM , Blogger Katherine S said...

A very good reason! :)

Also- a 5'0" person should NOT give birth to a 10Lb 2OZ baby ( That was me! ) :)

 
At March 12, 2011 at 5:48 PM , Blogger LP aka A Crafty Southern Chick said...

I only have 7 weeks to go, this is my first, and let me tell you...I never thought I would miss tying my shoes...or heck, being able to see my feet!!!

 
At March 12, 2011 at 6:25 PM , Blogger A.Co said...

Look at you!!! OMG!!! Sooooo cute!

Ummm, you're only 4'11?! You.Poor.Thing.! Good thing that lil' man of yours is such a cutie ;)

 
At March 12, 2011 at 7:09 PM , Blogger Erica @ Acire Adventures said...

Wow! I guess it's probably your height that makes it look that way, but that was a big baby bump!

Love your adorable prego pics! And the reason's aren't arguable ;) Pregnancy's hard even for a 5'10" girl too! LOL.

 
At March 12, 2011 at 7:39 PM , Blogger Nelah said...

My goodness I thought you had twins in that belly! You are so so adorable and gorgeous. I looked pretty miserable when pregnant lol. I thought my belly was enormous (I am a petite as well) but you won!!

 
At March 12, 2011 at 7:46 PM , Blogger Robin said...

I can relate! I am 5'2" and my third baby was a nine pounder!! YES, I am done now. I am definitely not a fan of being pregnant, but I sure love my kiddos! :0)

 
At March 12, 2011 at 8:02 PM , Blogger Marie said...

I'm just happy to have found another adult woman blogger that is 4'11''. Hallelujah! lol. :)

You might have felt bad, but you looked fabulous! Seriously, I'll bet from behind people couldn't even tell you were pregnant. But it is nice to be able to put your own socks on! :)

 
At March 12, 2011 at 8:32 PM , Blogger Sharde said...

ashley, i love your page! you and your husband look like such a perfect match, and yes, just like everyone else said- pregnant looks good on you! im scared of what it will look like on me, because im basically waiting for the chance to have the excuse of "im eating for two" haha :)

At March 12, 2011 at 9:42 PM , Blogger Kayla said...

I am not disgusted by your belly but it makes me cringe because it was so huge and it looks painful.

This is another reason to not have a baby and just keep my furry ones!

Yikes! I don't think I have ever seen a belly that big, you were definitely all baby!!!

 
At March 12, 2011 at 9:46 PM , Blogger Jayna Rae said...

You are one of those lucky gals who is all baby and doesn't gain an ounce anywhere else. You look super cute, but more importantly super uncomfortable at that stage of pregnancy. The uncomfortability is worth it though, isn't it?

 
At March 12, 2011 at 11:09 PM , Blogger MyDearJenn said...

Girl we REALLY had the same pregnancy body! I'm 5'2 and had a 9 pounder with no weight gain but in my belly! I totally feel your pain!

 
At March 13, 2011 at 6:03 AM , Anonymous Marcy said...

Lol. You are so cute pregnant though! BUT, I don't blame you for not wanting to do that again haha! =) Glad I stumbled across your blog!

 
At March 13, 2011 at 6:49 AM , Blogger Lo said...

OMG I can totally sympathize with you on that one. Im 5' 1" on a good day and all my kids were over 8 lbs. one neary 9 lbs. I have stretch marks 3/4 an inch thick and several inches long :(

you look sooo cute pregnant!

 
At March 13, 2011 at 1:11 PM , Blogger Tiffany said...

While I have to admit you look beautiful pregnant, these pictures just re-convinced me why it was a GREAT idea for hubby to get "snipped" this week. lol

 
At March 13, 2011 at 4:08 PM , Blogger Jamie Rubeis said...

Totally feel ya on that one...BUT you are like the cutest pregnant girl ever AND Baby W needs a little brother!

 
At March 13, 2011 at 4:39 PM , Blogger Karri said...

Are you really only 4'11"? And you looked fabulous! Glowing! Where's the face bloat the rest of us had?

 
At March 13, 2011 at 5:12 PM , Blogger Laura said...

Holy moly, girl! That pregnant belly is no joke! Somehow you manage to make it still look cute! Haha!

 
At March 13, 2011 at 5:36 PM , Blogger Lexie Loo & Dylan Too said...

That's too funny! My mom is your height, and that's exactly how she looked pregnant!

 
At March 13, 2011 at 6:35 PM , Blogger Chasey and Cash said...

That's the cutest pregnant belly ever! I absolutely LOVED being pregnant...I especially loved my basketball!...but I'm 5'8" and only went to 31 weeks with my daughter...and 36 weeks with my son...So...I kind of got off easy in the pregnancy department!

Go for another one.....you can have someone else tie your shoes! :)

You are such a cute expecting mommy! No matter how big the belly, you still have that beautiful glow! :)

I swear that's what I'm going to look like when I'm havin' babies. I'm 4' 11" as well, and a measly 95 lbs. My babies are going to double my weight!

I'll be awarding you a little something tomorrow. Check out my blog. :)

Ashley, you are SO CUTE pregnant!

All your post pregnant pictures of sweet little Baby W and cute, little petite you give me hope that I won't be pregnant forever......and maybe, JUST MAYBE, I can be small again like you.

you are my favorite blogger. I follow quite a few blogs. and i get so sick of them and their "perfectness" you are awesome and real and funny. and i love that you commented on my blog one time, i totally feel like we know each other even though you probably don't even remember haha!

OMG! You are only 4'11? You were totally cute but man that is one big belly for one baby! LOL. Both my kids were only 6 pounds 8 oz and 7 pounds 13 ounces but long 21 inches. The big belly is worth it though!

 
At March 14, 2011 at 4:18 PM , Blogger Heather said...

Oh my goodness! I got huge but my baby was only 7lbs and I am 5'4". Wowzers. I'm working on number 2 right now...and my first is 3. They say developmentally as long as they aren't 6 years apart they will bond and love each other:) (as if they woudn't otherwise..lol) Take your time and you'll know when your ready...if you're like me you'll cry and be totally hormonally unstable and your husband will think your nuts...hehe.
PS! You looked so totally cute! (jealous)
