18 months is the age of anxiety.
Maybe there is an early bird opportunity at your gym (while your DH still sleeps)--if he is in grad school, I can't imagine he has class at 6 AM.
(Just recalling from memory all of my classes from my PhD days were at night).
Or maybe you can run/walk in the early mornings or evenings when DH can take over.
If I knew that mine were crying in the baby play area of the gym, it would make me feel anxious and I would not want to leave them there. I mean, we all talk about CIO--I think 20 minutes of crying while I am trying to work out would be too much for me to handle. I realize that we need our time, too, but not at the expense of their anxiety. Please, no flames--I mean, just reading over the parenting forum in general, there is a topic on parents having adult opportunities and leaving babies to cry in the other room and everyone is saying how they can't deal with it--isn't this similar?

So the only way I can go is to go for the 6am classes while they are asleep and dh is home. But I've completely lacked motivation to go, but now I see another mama does it.. I'm determined to start tomorrow morning!
