There was an interesting article I read once in National Geographic about archaeologists examining the bones of the Medicis, in which they observed that a particular Medici wife who'd had nine or ten kids in succession (two survived to adulthood) had a completely flat coccyx.

I wonder if there really *are* a lot, if the person is otherwise healthy?

There's a woman in my church who's had seven children--or is it eight--and it must be over 15 or 20 years, since her oldest is about my oldest's age, and her youngest is a baby. She is thin and somewhat tired seeming, but otherwise seems completely healthy. And when I was a breastfeeding peer counsellor, one of the women I called had had ten children, and she was completely healthy.

I mean, there are things like prolapsed uteruses, that can happen, but I don't think they **necessarily** happen.
