Chinese Pregnancy Calendar

If you can't wait to find out what the gender of your baby is like me, then you may enjoy seeing Chinese gender calendar info. I have two daughters and I wanted to find out as soon as possible whether it was a girl or a boy. I know that some people like surprises, but for me, I wanted to know everything I could about the new life forming inside of me. I wanted to begin preparing for them and buying the items that I needed in either pink or blue!

Even if you are unsure, it's fun to try the tools provided here. No matter what you are expecting, it's neat to try this out to see if you are right. Take a look at all of the resources in this lens and learn more about your new arrival!

Where Did It All Start?

The Chinese Pregnancy Calendar is rumored to have been discovered in a tomb approximately 700 years ago and discovered by a Chinese scientist. The calendar is based on two factors: the mother's age at conception and the month of conception. One twist is the mother's age to be used is the mother's lunar age.

By using this calendar, the idea is that you can predict the gender of your unborn baby.

How to Choose the Sex of Your Baby: Fully revised and updated

For almost forty years, How to Choose the Sex of Your Baby has been the standard reference for couples trying to increase their chances of having the son or daughter they hope for. In this new edition of their classic book, Dr. Shettles and David Rorvik provide authoritative scientific studies and compelling anecdotal evidence demonstrating that the Shettles method continues to produce results unmatched by any other method. Dozens of testimonials confirm its ease of use and rate of success.

How to Choose the Sex of Your Baby explains the simple, at-home, noninvasive Shettles method and presents detailed steps to take to conceive a child of a specific gender. The properly applied Shettles method gives couples a 75 percent or better chance of having a child of the desired sex. Some researchers have reported success rates of up to 90 percent!


Predicting The Gender Of Your Baby - Wives Tales & Myths

  1. Carrying high or carrying low

    If you're carrying low, the sex of the baby is said to be a boy. If you're carrying higher, it's a girl.

  2. Full (round) face

    If your face is fuller during pregnancy, it's said that you will be having a girl. If you don't notice a change, expect a boy.

  3. Cravings and tastes

    If you are craving sweets, you are more likely to be having a girl. If you're carrying a boy, you are more likely to crave sour foods.

  4. Fetal heart rate

    It was believed (and some doctors still do) that girls have a faster heartbeat than boys. If the fetal heart rate is under 140 beats per minute, it is said that you are having a boy.

Convinced It's A Girl?

      people using the chinese pregnancy calendar have to realize back then, people in china used lunar calendar for everything, thus the mother's conception age on the chart has to be in lunar year. also, there are several different Chinese pregnancy calendars out there. Only one is the real calendar. Don't say the actual Chinese pregnancy calendar doesn't work, if you don't know which calendar you used or you did not use the correct age. i would find a chart, test it first to see if it is right (with your own birth or friend's, etc), then decide which is the correct one to use.
