After weeks of low amniotic fluid and multiple ultrasounds to monitor the fluid levels the Doctor scheduled me to be induced on 4 August, but Ellie had a different plan. August 1st was Gooseman's first day off in months due to Operation Odyssey Dawn and the tempo of his job. When we woke up all I could think about was having a gyro from Marko's Gyro's so we drove to the base to get some and pay our utility bill. When I went into pay our bill Gooseman went to work to check on a few things and while I was paying the bill I started to feel a leaking, truly unsure of what it was so I shrugged it off. After Goose and I met up I was adamant that I go home and take a nap before finishing the rest of the things we needed to do that day. When I woke up it was about 7pm and I was highly disappointed because I had many things on my to do list. So, we decided to pile the car full of our clothes and linens to get them to the wash on Base. 

 

Everyone was highly surprised that I was still walking around pregnant since we had so many false go's.
