Not tuff (PM)

You sure aren't tough, Mate. So you missed a morning at the gym. You don't have to cry about it. I'll tell you what I tell Baby every time he complains about bed time. Sleep is very important. If you want to grow big and strong (or in your case healthy and strong) you have to sleep. Sleep is as important as eating and exericising. If you have a baby inside you and you want it to grow big and strong (but not too big, a manageable size) you have to sleep so your body can do all the growing and repairing and awesome stuff it does while you are sleeping for you and your baby. 

I'll tell you something else too. When you have a baby your life is different than before. It's not worse, it's different. You need to think about the things that are important to you and to your baby and how best to negotiate that. Some days you can go to the gym and sometimes its just not the fuck worth it.

Or, to put it more gently, what "Sarah" said in her comment.

Also, it is very likely you can get more than 4 hours sleep when the baby gets here. I know some people don't but I do know that you, K, can nap during the day which means that even if your baby is a bad night sleeper you can nap when your baby naps or hangs out with Appleheart. So soon enough you will be back on the treadmill of life and of running.
