Yes, english speakers use "excited" to say they are happy with something. In latin languages such as spanish and portuguese to be excited is to be sexually aroused with something.

I did the same thing in my German class! I said I was "excited" to travel that summer in a paper, and my professor had me correct it in front of the entire class. Apparently most other languages use the verb "to excite" in that way. Heh.

Seriously, you learn that in like first year Spanish. Learn the damn language. And before you tell everyone you are pregnant, make sure to look up the word for 'embarrassed.'
