Hang in there. Right now you should be as supportive of her as possible. You and her are going to be going through a wide range of emotions. Don't start running around and doing handstands either way until she knows for sure. My wife and I got pregnant about 6 weeks after we were married, and it was unexpected. Life has a way of "breaking" through. My reaction to the first two tests was relief, and then when she told me the results of the blood test. The first words out of my mouth were "crap". I regret those words every day. My sons are the best parts of my life.
If that isn't a medical phenomena, I don't know what is.
I don't know that you can ever really be "ready" for kids. On the plus side, you will be young enough to keep up when your kids get older. If you are in good enough shape, you don't have to worry about them wanting to play catch but you are down in your back.
