It’s usually one of the first things that new Mums (or Dads!) are aching to find out… is it a boy or a girl?
There are many old wives tales and cultural beliefs for guessing the gender of the baby. One of the popular ‘predictors’ out there is the Chinese Gender Predictor Chart which is said to be up to 90% accurate.
If you can’t wait until the 18-22 week ultrasound to find out, you may want to give this a go for fun!
Calculate Your Chinese Lunar Age
In order to use the chart, you must first calculate your Chinese Lunar Age which uses the Chinese Calendar. The Chinese calendar is based on lunar cycles or phases of the moon, which is the basis of determining the date of Chinese New Year. It is the onset of this Chinese New Year that is used to determine a person’s lunar age, as opposed to the convention of using a person’s birthdate.
You can use this calculator to determine your Lunar Age
Calculate Your Lunar Month of Conception
You must them calculate your Lunar Month of conception. The first day of the first lunar month usually falls between 21 January and 20 February, within 15 days of the solar ‘Start of Spring’.
You can use this calculator to determine your Lunar Month of conception.
E.g. Conceiving 15 February = lunar month of conception in Lunar Month 1.
