I'm traveling for work.

Specifically, I drove 5 hours yesterday to stay at a hotel and today I'm taking the deposition of a plaintiff in a federal lawsuit. After the deposition concludes today, I drive 5 hours home.

I joked to a friend yesterday that I was sure the miscarriage would start in earnest during this trip. Since the plaintiff's dep is the most important.

Guess what I woke up to?

It's not a joke today.

I suppose the bright side is that I'm so concerned with getting through the dep and drive home that I'm not completely falling apart. I'm also very hopeful that I can get to a store before the dep starts and get the requisite supplies.

Official stats (in honor of the Colorado Rockies' opening day):

17 days late

7 weeks gestation

7th pregnancy

6th miscarriage

Brody really is a bona fide, undeniable, genuine miracle. I cannot wait to hold him tonight.
