Pregnant!! FIRST TIME MOMMY!! And need some answers!

I found out the day before Thanksgiving that I am pregnant. I took 5 pregnancy tests that day, one yesterday, one today and they all came out positive. I'm going to call the doctor on Monday to set up an appointment so that he can officially confirm that I am pregnant.
What I want to know is if what I'm feeling is normal..
My chest would be hurting a lot, like it kind of burns but in a cooling burn. You know the way it feels when you're chewing a mint gum or eating a mint? It feels like that but about twice as bad. I've never had heart burn before so I don't know if that's what I'm experiencing. Also, when I get that feeling, I sometimes feel it going down to my stomach and my ribs start hurting. Is that normal?
I put on this app the first day of my last period and it says I am about 4 weeks pregnant. I haven't gotten an morning sickness but I've felt like I'm about to throw up even before I found out I'm pregnant.
Also, my husband is very excited. We were only trying for about 2 months before I got pregnant and at the time it felt like it was taking too long but now that it's here, I don't really know how to feel. I tear up a few times a day since I found out (except on the I found out..I cried like a baby), but it hasn't truly hit me yet. Is that normal? I've been wanting a baby since I got married, so I thought that when I get pregnant I'd be happier and more excited than I am now. To me, it doesn't really feel real yet.
Anyway, thanks for taking time to read this. I know it was a long one.
