Am I the only one who thought of Joey on Friends?    
Really, I think this is about right.  From what I can tell, Mesoamerican scholars have found Maya references to events that happened before this cycle of the Long Count calendar, and to prophecies that would happen after this cycle ends.   It's not the end of the calendar, it's the end of the cycle. (This link in particular is quite interesting, as is this one.)   From the first link:     Admittedly, I have not spent much time studying Maya culture, but I put much more...

Yes to all below.  The first part, about being sick, I would understand, but the second part would rub me the wrong way.  Not only because it seems to assume that I have no manners, but also because there is an implication that mothers who don't home birth don't want or don't need to be "mothered" as well.
