Chinese baby gender chart

How to calculate your Chinese lunar age

To calculate your Chinese lunar age is not so complicated and confusing as some people think. You are 1-year-old when you are born, and add one more year after each Chinese New Year. If you born on Chinese New Year Eve before midnight, you are 2-year-old next morning!

Most of us can use this equation to calculate your Chinese age:

Y1 - Y2 +1 = CA

* CA = Chinese Age

* Y1 = Current year

* Y2 = the year you were born

Example: I was born in 1968, then 2010 - 1968 +1 = 43, so I am 43, simple as that!

But if you plan to have baby in your birthday month and Chinese New Year just happens in that month, you need to check date of birth in Chinese lunar calendar, and when is Chinese New Year, you'd better to buy a Chinese Calendar or go to any Chinese Takeaway to ask for it.

Because we use Solar year to calculate Lunar year, we calculate Chinese age using Gregorian calendar year, sometime this will cause problems. Here I give you a very rare case: a baby boy was born on 13th February 2010, the next day 14th February 2010, he is two years old. Then after 4th February 2011, he will be 3 years old, but he hasn't passed his first birthday yet!

Chinese baby gender chart

As legend would have it, the Chinese Baby Gender Chart was buried in a royal tomb over 700 years ago. Legend says that this chart is 93-percent accurate and this chart is currently on display at the Beijing Institute of Science. This chart has been used to predict the gender of an unborn child based on the mother's age and month of conception.

The chart has two axes, the age of mum when the baby was conceived on the left and the month in which the baby was conceived on the top. Note that the age is your age in Chinese lunar calendar. Chinese lunar calendar is entirely different from the western calendar that uses its own system to record dates and seasons.

How to use Chinese bayb gender chart

The Chinese baby gender chart rarely seems random when you are actually looking at it. If the mum-to-be was 18 when she conceived the baby, the odds of the child turning out to be boy are 10 out of 12. whereas if the lady was twenty-one at the age of conception, the odds of having a boy are only 1 in 12. Overall, when you look carefully to the chart, it is noticed that when mother gets older, the chances of having a boy are about as similar as having a girl.

Simply find the age of the mother at the time of conception on the chart below and then follow across to the month the baby was conceived to find the predicted gender. Both the age and the month are in Chinese lunar calendar. Although this chart is said to have a success rate of 93 percent and there is no big point to do this when ultrasound scan can do the job scientifically, keep in mind that this is solely for entertainment purposes. Enjoy!
