Change reaction

How would you react when you get something after a long wait:
Elated- excited
Disbelief- Superstitious lest the bubble burst
Preparatory mode- the wait has been too long
Tense- what will I miss, fear of the unknown

disbelief, then relief, finally excitement+elation => i'll keep jumping instead of walking and singing instead of talking - in short, go slightly loony!

ALL of the above!

When I got pregnant with my second IVF cycle (after 1 failed pregnancy, 4 failed IUIs and one failed IVF), I was elated that I was finally pregnant, in disbelief that I was pregnant, eager to start preparing for the pregnancy and the baby and tense throughout the pregnancy for the fear fo something going wrong after going through so much.

I almost always get things after I have stopped wanting them - so it is usually one of no reaction!

Elation and disbelief at first, followed by thanksgiving, and preparation.
Tense... I don't know. If I have been waiting for it, then obviously it is something I wanted, and so I will go forward, not worrying too much about what's in store- good/bad.
