Anna- I'm German too! Only about 50% though. I'd never heard the word until I read TCOYF a couple months ago, and I fell in love with it. I love the German language!
Beth- lol, I often wish there were a like button on here too! When my pains are at their worst, I'm thinking 'there is no way we're going to be able to BD'. I just want to curl up and not move! A bath usually seems to help though, and my pains are really only bad for about an hour.
