Cool.

Oh how pregnant women never cease to amaze me! Now, studies are showing that pregnant women have more “flexible and supportive spines than men to keep them from toppling over under the weight of pregnancy.”

“Pregnancy presents an enormous challenge for the female body. The body must change in dramatic ways to accommodate the baby, and these changes affect a woman’s stability and posture,” said Katherine Whitcome, an anthropologist at Harvard University, who led the study.

“It turns out that enhanced curvature and reinforcement of the lower spine are key to maintaining normal activities during pregnancy,” Whitcome said.

It really amazes me to see how much a woman’s body can accomplish. All those pregnant out there, feel good and accomplished with your bodies!
