The actress recently did a maternity photoshoot and discussed how she is getting used to all these differences in her appearance.
She revealed this on her blog post for her lifestyle website, Frenshe. The High School Musical singer shared that she has to be honest. She said that she hasn’t got the “warm and fuzzy feeling” about her pregnant body being beautiful.
It’s like I don’t fully recognize myself and almost like an out-of-body experience.”
The actress admitted that she is proud of her body and grateful but she is seeing her body look different and it is still shocking her. She wrote, “Don’t get me wrong, I am so proud of my body and I’m so grateful to be able to create a home and grow my little one.

Ashley is expecting her first baby with her husband, Christopher French. The actress shared how she doesn’t fully recognize herself and it is like a different experience. She wrote, “It’s like I don’t fully recognize myself and almost like an out-of-body experience.”
The former Disney star added that she thinks her relationship with her body is a clash between body acceptance and body love. She wrote, “I think that you can love your body, no matter what shape or form, but it’s the acceptance part that trips me up a little.”
Ashley also shared how it wasn’t helpful for her confidence that she “pooped pretty early”. She revealed how people began to draw various conclusions and asked if she was farther along than she thinks and questions about her having twins.
The Masked Dancer judge wrote, “I think change can be hard, but I continue each day saying I love you to my body because it’s doing so much, and it’s creating is a beautiful miracle. I have to let the ego-mind go and appreciate that my body can even do this. It’s letting go of my own needs because the needs of my baby are more important.”
“…it’s important to honor how you feel..”
The actress revealed what she will do after her baby is born as she shared that she will give her body time to heal and take good care of it. she further revealed that she wanted to share this because she is sure like a lot of other people she felt ashamed that she was uncomfortable at first. The High School Musical star explained, “Yet, it’s important to honor how you feel and understand that everyone has a different experience with pregnancy.”
Ashley has been candid about her journey and some difficulties she has experienced during her pregnancy. Last week the actress revealed that she was experiencing plantar fasciitis brought by her pregnancy itself. The condition is caused because of the inflammation of the tissue that runs across the bottom of one’s foot. It causes stabbing pain for those people who suffer from it.
At the time, she wrote, “The worst part so far during this pregnancy is my plantar fasciitis. It literally hurts just to walk on my feet. I’ve never felt pain like this and I’m hoping once the baby is here it lets up. I know there could be worse things but for someone who is constantly on their feet it can be pretty unbearable,” Tisdale added. The mom-to-be shared that she thinks she is seven pounds and she has never carried that around before. She shared that she is very short so it has been painful and she is really hoping it goes away eventually or when the baby girl is out of her.
