It’s a . . . . BOY! (Maternity Leave Note)

By |

Little Vinnie Dean arrived on Sunday, September 23rd, 8 days early. I’ll write about my entire birth at a later date. But, I will tell you he panicked me. I had big plans for those last 8 days – a life of leisure on the couch and running last minute errands, moments to myself before giving 18+ years to someone else….. But Vinnie was ready and my water broke at 4 am on Sept 23rd. I tried to hold him in for a few hours – seriously. I thought maybe I could will labor to stop. No such luck.

Over a week later I am so happy I have had this extra time with my little man. What a gift these 8 days have been. Not that they have been easy. WOW. Not easy at all. But awesome in every way – even in the roughest moments (like many of the moments between his birth and the 9 DAYS it took my milk to come in…)

Here is our first family photo:

I probably won’t be posting much, if any, in the next few weeks. As I will be spending as much time as possible looking at this face:

If you are new to FHM or returning to find a great workout, you can find all our free workouts here:

If you are here to download one of our full programs (Baby Bumpin’ Prenatal Workouts, 6 Week Pregnancy Weight Loss or SuperMom Workouts), you can look at all programs here.

If you have any questions for me, feel free to email me at Just know it may take me a couple days to get back to you. It’s hard juggling a baby and a laptop!!

Thank you for all your support and patience during this amazing time. I can’t wait to share more of my journey with you!

Hi Sara,
Congratulations from Australia!!! And welcome little Vinnie Dean. What a lucky little boy to have such a lovely and inspiring mum. I’ve been doing your workouts since I had my baby girl in Feb and feel so much better for it. You just inspire me to get out there. I even had my 10year old nephew and 8year old niece join in the other day!!!
I hope you enjoy this magical journey and new love affair with your newest man :-)
Best wishes,
Ps the really tough bit goes faster than you think it will :-)
