The Chinese gender predictor chart uses the mother’s estimated conception date or due date to guess the sex of the baby. It then converts the numbers into the mom’s lunar age at conception and her lunar conception date. You’ll get a prediction of whether your baby will be a boy or a girl.
The tradition dates back 700 years when, according to legend, a calendar for gender prediction was found in a Chinese royal tomb. Chinese astrology practitioners believe these charts accurately predict your baby’s gender.
There needs to be more information available from reliable sources about the chart, its accuracy or whether it works. The Chinese gender calendar is likely just another old wives’ tale about how to determine a baby’s gender.
Many pregnant women say that the Chinese gender chart is the most accurate non-medical way to determine whether they are having a girl or a boy.
However, Baby Gender Pros believe you should always cross-reference the information with another test, such as one of the more popular baby gender predictor tests such as:
According to some, a Chinese calendar for predicting gender can be as accurate as 93 per cent. You can consult it at any stage of your pregnancy because the chart is based on the month and age you were when you conceived.

There’s no evidence to suggest that Chinese gender calendars are accurate. It’s not based on science, so it isn’t more accurate than any other non-medical, low-tech gender test (according to experts, at least!). With only two possible outcomes — either a boy or a female — any method that isn’t scientific will be accurate about half the time.
If you like! Trying this or any other “boy or girls?” tests is not bad. It’s fun to try these tests, especially with friends and family.
If you enjoy gender guessing, then go ahead. Refrain from using the results to make big decisions, like choosing the perfect name for the baby or how to decorate the room.

This ultrasound test does not work fully until the genital structure is sufficiently developed to detect it. Although this method is very accurate, it is still not 100%. Even the best technicians make mistakes.
Amniocentesis, chorionic-villus sampling and noninvasive prenatal tests (NIPT) are all medically accurate ways to determine the baby’s gender.
First, a blood test is used by more expecting mothers who want to find out early if they are pregnant. The two other tests are reserved for high-risk pregnancies because they require more invasive testing to detect chromosomal anomalies.
