Default Happiest/Saddest day of my life!!

Yesterday my wife called me and told me to be ready to take her to a doctor appointment.I told her that I would be ready and that I just bought our un-born baby girl some new clothes that i wanted her to see. As soon as she came in the door I wanted her to look but she had to go to the bathroom,when she came out she said we had to go....I thought nothing of it. Then we get to the doctors and they tell us that she was going in to labor!I was so excited as she was or third child,the only thing is she was four months early.As I was holding my new baby girl(Angelina) I could feel her heart bet next to mine.We were all crying....but not tears of joy,as the nurse told us she would not make it.I was and still am soo confused..
It was the happiest and saddest I have ever been in my life. For 30 min. all I could do is no that any second my baby would not be with my family.We had to watch our baby die as there was nothing they could do.I am ok with knowing that the reason I am living is to die.I am a mans man...but it still hurts! The reason I am putting this up is for those of us that have kids,grandkids some times we dont realize how important the little thing are,like a simple I love you.I just hope people do not respond to this in the wrong way and just understnad that I have respect for all on this site, and only ask that you all do the same. I will leave you all with one of my favorite quotes.. from the late TuPac "Why question my love,when its so easy to see,with out my family,all Im left with is a shadow of me"..........
Thank you all for reading,
Anthony

I am very sorry for your loss. I can't even pretend to know what your going through. My family will keep your family in our prayers. Days like this, make things in my life seem a little more insignificant. Good luck and god bless.

Oh man..giz very very sorry to hear this, I really wish you and your family the best right now. I can't fathom this, it will be 9 years in 3 months for my wife and I to try, but that doesnt even get close. I read the first part and hoped for a better ending. I myself was born a premi, more than 2 months premature (and given it was 1978, I've got more than a few doctors to thank as I really have no health conditions due to the premature birth).

I'm with you, sorry to read this and all my best to you and the wife. Our 1st son died only seconds after birth, cherish the time you had with him. I never leave the house without telling wife and daughter I love them even if I'm pi$$ed with them.
Be strong!!!!!
PS: I just got a new grandson on the 7th!

That's awful, I know I'm new here, but I just wanted to say I feel for you and hope you and your wife can come together and support one another during this difficult time. You'll need each other now more than ever.

My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. I am glad you shared your story with us it was an eye opener for me. I have a daughter that is almost 3 years old and I love her so much but since I read your story I look at her and am thankful that she is in my life. I can't imagine what you and your family are going through but keep your head up Brother.
