The reactions....

Okay, so now I have had a day to digest the news and I am excited - still very freaked out, but very excited!
My biggest concern, I guess, is that Ryan is still a baby himself and now we are going to add another to the mix? Are we crazy (probably!)?
Rob got home sooooo much later than we thought he would - it was after 8:00pm. I couldn't contain it anymore, so after asking him how the game was, etc. I said "I know that our honeymoon being cancelled was really disappointing, but something really great DID come out of it" and I pulled the test out from behind my back. He was shocked! He kept saying "shut up!" and "Are you serious?!?!" and "WOW!". Of course I had to go and ruin the beautiful moment by starting to cry because I feel guilty towards Ryan for getting pregnant again so quickly and because I am still very overwhelmed that it happened this fast!
But, all in all, a good thing! Rob is so much more attentive already this time around. I think he was so SHOCKED by my last pregnancy that it took a while to sink in. We had some arguments in early pregnancy that were really related to him just being clueless about how I was feeling physically. This time around? He has already inquired twice about how I am feeling!
How am I feeling? Fine. Tired - no, make that exhausted! And hungry. That is it so far! And the mild cramping and very full feeling in my mid-section.
Last time the morning sickness didn't kick in until 6 weeks so I figure I have another 2 weeks of feeling good to go! Hopefully it won't be as bad this time around since all I wanted to do was sleep last time!

I'm so happy for you, Andrea!!! You'll do great with 2 under 2 and I'm sure Ryan will love having a baby brother or sister so close in age. :-)
BTW, do you know your due date yet?

I'm thrilled for you and Rob and Ryan! What a cute little family of 4 you will be! Do you hope for a boy or girl this time around?

That's sweet of Rob to be so attentive to you! Chris had the opposite affect.
I'm sure you'll manage just fine with the 2 kids. Everyone that has them that close says that wouldn't have changed it.
I felt the same way with Krosby in very early pregnancy, hungry for about a week or so then came the sickness.

Joana - I am going by an EDD of July 27th for now
Jess - I am very ambivilant towards the sex of this baby. I always thought I wanted only girls, but now that I ahve Ryan I can't imagine it any other way! I think another boy would be helpful since they are so close in age as well!
