I am a convert to the Orthodox church as well. When my wife & I became catechumens, I did not expect anything spiritually significant to happen; however, after the priest blew on us, I felt the grace of the Holy Spirit really strongly for several days. I feel this helped confirm our decision to become Orthodox.
Looking back on it, as a catechumen, I was very impatient at wanting to get baptized and chrismated. I think I was under the impression I would be damned if I didn't begin to receive the sacraments immediately (which had to do with my western christian mindset). If I could do it over again, I would have just sat back and enjoyed the ride.
You are now under the protection/wing of mother church! I wish you a great journey!
