Chinese Baby Gender Predictor is for women to select baby gender before conception. The theory comes from the Chinese Ching Dynasty's Baby Gender Calendar Chart. The chart is a baby gender statistic chart by women ages and conception months from the loyal families in the Forbidden City of the Ching Dynasty. Therfore, the chart is not a scientific research report or a Chinese astrology method.
The Chinese Baby Gender Prediction Calendar Chart was revealed by a Taiwanese newspaper in 1972. Later, the Baby Gender Prediction Chart is posted in Chinese Farmer's Almanac every year. It said that Chinese Baby Gender Prediction Chart has very high accurate rate according the survey in the hospital's delivery room. The detail information is at The Origin of Chinese Baby Gender Predictor page.
The Chinese used the Chinese Lunar Calendar until 1912, which was the first year of the Republic of China. That means the Ching Dynasty's baby gender chart is based on the Chinese lunar calendar. The Chart shows the relationship between the age and the conception month. The age is the Chinese age for women. The Chinese treat a baby as a one year old when born. They then add to their age on each following Chinese New Year Day. If a baby was born on the Chinese New Year Eve, then the baby becomes two years old on the next day on the Chinese New Year Day.
The conception month is supposed to the Chinese lunar month. Chinese lunar calendar is very complicate. In order to match up the solar and lunar cycles, Chinese invented the leap month(Intercalary Month). For example, Year of 2017 Chicken has leap 6th lunar months. That means there are two 6th lunar months in 2017. There is no leap month indicator in the baby gender chart. That tells us that sometimes to find the correct conception month is not that easy. we will discuss more about this issue in the Baby Gender Survey page.
