There are many myths surrounding the origins of the Chinese gender predictor chart. According to Chinesegenderchart.info, it's said that the chart dates back to over 300 years ago where it was protected by dedicated eunuchs in the Qing palace and was not showcased to others.
Apparently, 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. 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.
The Chinese Gender Predictor Chart
How does the Chinese gender predictor work?
The chart that this gender prediction method is based on was founded in an ancient tomb near Beijing more than 700 years ago. The prediction method is based on the chart, which uses the Lunar age of the mother and the month of conception.
The chart is also said to be able to predict how feminine or masculine your child will be based on the 1st, 5th and 9th column of the mother's age. If the chart shows more boys than girls in these spaces, your baby is more likely to be masculine - more girls, and they are likely to be more feminine. Use the chart above to see if the appearance predictor is accurate for you and your child!
All you have to do, is simply tell us the month you conceived and how old you were, and our tool will do the rest!
Please remember, this tool is just for fun, and cannot confirm for definite whether you are expecting a baby boy or a baby girl, so don't plan your gender reveal party just yet! For a more accurate guess, you can ask your sonographer at your 18-21 week scan to have a look for you. Still, this is a fun way to kill time whilst on your commute.
Australian influencer and mum of two, Tammi found the chinese gender predictor eerily correct: "Did anyone else find the chinese gender chart to be correct for them? It was correct for both my pregnancies and a few of my friends as well! 😱❤️"
Scans and finding out the gender of your baby
At your 12-week scan, this is the first time you will get to see your baby inside you and it’s the most exciting pregnancy milestone yet! However the baby's sex won't yet be able to be seen at this point.
At around 18-21 weeks you'll be invited for an anomaly scan. This is to check for any abnormalities with baby. At the end of this scan the sonographer will ask you if you want to know the sex of the baby (if they can see it!), but if you're too keen to wait until then, why not give the Chinese gender predictor tool a go?
Of course, the tool is just a bit of fun, but let us know if the tool predicted right for you!
