a watermelon

last night before bed i ate this:


and i must have eaten a seed because i woke up looking like this:


hello belly. the above picture is dedicated to helium, so she can see i am not in denial that i am pregnant. and to brock and my mom who are not fans of pregnant belly pictures.

yesterdays top 3 pregnancy related comments:
3. the nurse at my dr appt "well, your looking nice and really pregnant these days" um, yeah guess that is what happens...
2. velzy "mom, your belly just keeps getting bigger and bigger!" thanks love.
1. guy out at turtle bay "whoa- can you surf with that?" umm, i am in the water, surfing. does that answer your question?

and the next person that asks me "are you going to try for a boy?" might walk away with a black eye. :)

Megan and Keli'i said...

You really are one sexy pregnant chick. Uh, so are you gonna try for a boy?

I love what people say to pregnant people. It's like their brains escape them and they ask and say really, really dumb things...

You are still a teeny, teeny, fit, beautiful girl. And I love ya.

Great picture for sure! I swear people need more of a filter- it's amazing what people say after you've just had a baby too. Give it a year people! We like having all boys, but I grew up with all girls- very economical!

Mrs. Jones says said...

Oh my gosh. You are the first pregnant person I have ever seen with a six pack ;)
And you can surf still!?? You rock. I could not figure out now to lay on my board. So, it was only long board knee paddling for me in SUPER small waves, and that did not even last long!! You rock!!

chanel said...

can i put some things in perspective for you....
a) i can't surf even without a human being inside me. and if i tried the guy at turtle bay would probably give me the same comment, even though again, there would be no human being inside me....
b) i will be posting a pict of my lovely about to pop belly and you will feel OH SO MUUUUUUCH BETTER. if anyone is in denial that you're pregnant it is me, cause it is really hard to compare the tum tums.
c) my doc says... do you always gain this much weight with your babies? nice.
d) weiners are way over rated- seriously!

I hope I'm around the next time you get asked about trying for a boy... =)

Missy said...

Seriously do I see a six pack around the tiny belly?? You are incredible Ash.

Are you coming to CA anytime soon? I'd love to meet up with you and your girlies.

If I looked like you when prego I would be crankin' out the kids. Seriously awesome tummy - so jealous.

No, we're not living across from Hukilau, but my friend is and she has my van for a couple of weeks while we're on the mainland. When we get back next week we're off to Maui - got a job teaching kindergarten over there. Super excited for that! BTW, who's Velzy's teacher.

mahina said...

your belly is so teeny and you look great! i'm not far behind you (belly wise) and i'm only 16 weeks! i can't even fathom what my belly will look like when i am as far along as you are! haha!

and i cannot tell you how many times we hear the "trying for a boy comment!" do you get the "your poor husband!" comment? get it ALL the time! now that we are prego w/ twins everyone asks, "are you hoping that at least ONE of them is a boy?" for sure a "black eye" comment, all of them!

Mariko said...

Yes, I'm going to repeat everyone else and say, I can't believe how tiny you are. And the six pack. You're putting all of my excuses to shame.
Don't you love how EVERYONE asks how you're doing? People you don't even know. I love that. So much. So much I want to punch them in the face.

The Price Family said...

I agree you are a smokin hot pregnant woman HA! And that boy comment is so annoying.

Missy said...

do I really not have your email address? i would love you forever and you can put them in your etsy shop and I will pay you for them if you make them for me! I'm scrapbooking illiterate as far as meshing those papers together.

I'm thinking I will frame them to use white board marker. is that what you think is best? Or contact paper...

xo ash!

Katie said...

I can honestly say your pregnant belly is the first toned pregnant belly I've ever seen! Gosh I'm jealous...All I get are stretch marks and back fat-yep I still have it and my baby is 8.5 months, UGGG! Do you know what you're having yet?

Billings Family said...

That's it! I am putting this bowl of corn pops down, and am going to do some freakin pilates! You are my inspiration! I am so proud you are my niece with a ripped tan belly like that! I was doing sharing time and Luke in Senior primary yells out, "Man mom, your belly is getting big!" Junior primary, Mick blares out the same exact thing! Gotta love the honesty! Your house is AMAZING! I am living through you Ash!! Life is fun! Glad to see you are living it to the fullest!

liko said...

you're sooo hott right now with your pregnancy shot!!

seriously! looks like a pregnant model for a magazine or something.

i hate you.

Rebecca Olive said...

I once heard someone ask my friend, "should you be surfing in your condition?"

Condition!!!

Terrible and funny all at once.

Tracey said...

You look amazing and you kinda rock. Put all the prego moaners to shame! And i think that there may be alot of men out there loving your prego hot chickadee look too! And as for the gender comment. People are so stupid.
But then i guess there are stupid people out there who really try and try just for a certain sex. Stoopid!
