So now you have discovered you're pregnant, there are so many more exciting steps to come! Are you having a boy or a girl? Let’s have a bit of fun and see what the Chinese gender prediction calendar suggest.

How Does The Chinese Gender Predictor Tool Work?

The chinese gender calendar is based on the mother’s lunar age and the lunar date of conception. Don't worry if you do not know your 'lunar dates'.

We have simplified the task for you. Just look at your actual age at time of conception and conception month. For example if you are 24 and conceived in March the Lunar calendar suggests you baby will be a Girl. The calculation is based on the Chinese baby gender chart.

How Accurate Is The Chinese Gender Predictor Calendar?

The chinese gender predictor test has no scientific backing. It could have a 50-50 chance of being right.

Some might find it accurate, while some others might get it wrong purely based on chance. Though some researchers claim it to be more than 90% accurate, it is highly contested as there is no scientific proof. This gender calculator can be used just for fun. It is not a sure way of confirming the gender of your baby nor is it a replacement to scientific methods such as The Nub Theory (Accurate from around 12th week of pregnancy) or an ultrasound (Accurate from 16th week of pregnancy)

History of the Chinese gender predictor

There are many myths surrounding the origins of the Chinese gender predictor chart. According to the information surrounding this it's said that the chart dates back to over 700 years ago where it was protected by dedicated eunuchs in the Qing palace and was not showcased to others.

Legend suggests this chart is derived from I Ching and time projections, and created for the imperial family to help them conceieve baby boys. During the Boxers Rebellion towards the end of Qing Dynasty, most of the empire’s treasures were stolen and this chart was brought to England, where the then king treasured the relic. Later, the chart made its way to Austria before a Chinese scholar studied the chart in detail, and finally returned it to its homeland of China.

Did the Lunar calendar work for you?

Remember this isn’t scientifically proven way to find out your baby’s gender, so don’t throw the gender reveal party just yet!
