The Accuracy of the Chinese Pregnancy Calendar

Aug 21, 2008
How accurate is the Chinese pregnancy calendar? This calendar is also known as the Chinese conception chart and predicts whether you will have a boy or girl based on your age and the month in which you became pregnant. Supposedly, this chart was buried in a royal tomb thousands of years ago and was uncovered in an archaeological excavation. The actual chart is on display at the Institute of Science.

Many people swear by this calendar and it has proven to be accurate in about 99% of the cases in which it was used. The calendar is divided into thirteen columns ?one for the age of the mother and the twelve months of the year. Find your age when you became pregnant and slide your finger along the line until you come to the month in which you became pregnant. The letter M for male in that month means you will have a boy and the letter F means you will have a girl. For example, if you are 23 years old and you conceived in March, according to this calendar, you will have a boy.

If you are trying to conceive and there is a specific gender you want to have, then you can consult with this calendar to increase the likelihood of having the gender you want. An eighteen year old will likely have a boy if she conceives during any of the months from April to December. According to this chart an 18-year old woman will only have a girl if she conceives during January or March. A 21-year old, on the other hand, has a greater chance of having a girl because the only month of conception for a boy is January. While most of the ages have a pretty even chance of the baby being a boy or girl, a 30-year old will likely have a boy unless she gets pregnant during March or June.

There are many tales about how to predict the gender of an unborn baby. Some people try swinging a needle suspended by a thread over the hand of the pregnant woman. If it swings from side to side, this is said to mean the baby will be a girl. If it swings north to south, this means that baby will be a boy. Some say that if you carry the baby low it will be a girl and if you carry it high it will be a boy. None of these methods of determining the gender are accurate. However, like the Chinese calendar for pregnancy, it does prove that people have been trying to guess the gender of the baby for centuries. The Chinese are perhaps the only ones who have found a system that works.

Have fun with using the chart to see if it will be right for you. You shouldn put your faith in it so completely that you decorate the nursery for a specific gender because then you could be in for a disappointment when the baby is born. Ultrasounds late in the pregnancy can tell you definitely whether the baby is a boy or a girl because you can see the genitals.
