Welcome to your lodge!!

Those of you in my August BC might know this short part already. I hope it's ok if I copy it.
Our Short Pre-Pregnancy Story
My husband and I met in 2002 and got married few months later. We have being trying for a child whenever he was not deployed but we were unsuccessful .
In 2006 we both got tested and the results weren't what we were hoping for. The doctors told us we needed help if we wanted to have children. I went to the hospital to get checked for cysts and to get Clomid but the doctor had bad news for us. I had a huge cyst. I didn't feel comfortable with having an insemination from the beginning and it was like a sign when the doctor told me that he wasn't able to start us on Clomid. This is when we decided to put our trust in God and let Him work what He wanted for us and our lives.
Later in 2006 my husband got deployed for a second time . After being gone for a year, we decided to spend some quality time together and went for a cruise around the Hawaiian Islands. This vacation, which we took in November 07, has changed everything . On December 5, 2007 we found out that we were expecting.
The Day We Found Out
December 05, 2007 was one of those stormy Hawaiian nights. In the morning we found out that the power went out due to the electricity poles being knocked down. Trees and branches were covering the streets. The city employees already started cleaning the streets so people could get to work.
And I felt sick. Horribly sick .
I wasn't sure what was going on, but in back of my mind, there was this hope after I started spotting few days after I ovulated. I had a few old ovulation tests laying around, and I learned that some woman used those as pregnancy tests, so I said: "hey let's see what happens". It came out positive. Huh? My thought was: 'hey wait a sec. I don't ovulate when I should be getting my period". My cycle was very regular and by the day we found out, I was about 2 days late and felt that something was going on with my body. This is when my hopes raised even more but I really didn't want to take this test until Friday. I have taken sooo many and all of them came back negative.
I told Carl (my hubby) that he needs to wait until the end of the week.
Later that evening we went to see our friends. On our way there, Carl and I stopped by at Walmart to get a pregnancy test. He insisted on it, and I knew he wouldn't let me alone so I gave in .
Once we made it to our friends house, we told them that I might be pregnant. We shouldn't have because after that I had three people telling me I should take the pee. *lol*
I still felt really nauseous so we decided to go home early.
On our way home, hubby bugged me the whole time and was making fun of me because I was experiencing this horrible "morning sickness", or lets say "whole day sickness". Well this is what it was to him.
By the time we made it home, he got me so mad that I grabbed a flashlight, the stick and took the test. I was so scared to get one of those "negatives" so I denied reading the results and enlisted him to do it.
While he was in the restroom waiting for the results, I started lighting candles around the living room. I just finished when he came in running, looking like a little boy on Christmas, Thanksgiving, and Birthday together. He was jumping around like a little boy and his eyes were sparkling . I was still mad at him *lol* and muttered: "WHAT???! " That's when he realized that I didn't know yet. He took my hand and I followed him to the restroom. And there it was: A BIG FAT: PREGNANT. I stood there like a statue, staring at it for a few minutes. Then I took it, shaked it, and stared at it some more . And it didn't change. This is when I broke down in tears and started kissing my husband . After I came down a little we prayed.
Ahhh, you made me tear up Congrats on your first baby! I'm excited to follow your journey.
