One of the most exciting moments in your pregnancy is finding out what the sex of your baby is going to be. Because knowing the sex of your baby means that you can begin your shopping and decorating the nursery. However, in most cases, you can’t find out if you are having a male or female until you are about four months pregnant. So in those first four months of pregnancy, friends and family will joke and make comments like, “Oh, I feel like it’s going to be a boy or a girl…” But there has something that has been around for many years and mostly being pretty accurate, and that is the Chinese calendar that can determine if your baby is going to be a baby boy or a baby girl.
The history of the chinese calendar
The Chinese calendar was found hundreds of years ago by a Chinese scientist. The calendar was said to be found in a Royal chamber near Peking, China. The information that the scientist drew out from the information was that this particular calendar could determine whether the baby will be a boy or girl, based on the month of conception and the mother’s age at the time of conception. Although the Chinese calender is sometimes accurate, it is not in any way scientific and can be added to the list of Old Wives’ tales for baby gender.
For years after the calendar was found, and still to this day, Chinese people have religiously studied this calendar, finding out that 99% of the time the calendar proves to be true with its outstanding results. For many years, people all around the world has used this chart to determine what their baby is going to be so that they won’t have to wait those first few months of the pregnancy. Also, sometimes, parents will turn to the Chinese calendar if the ultrasound isn’t clear, or if their baby isn’t cooperating by spreading its legs during the time of the ultrasound.
How to plan pregnancy based on the calendar
When you begin planning a family with your spouse, you always have a dream of what your family will be like, if you are going to have 2 boys and 1 girl, or vice versa. A lot of couples have also been known to go by the Chinese calendar as they are planning on becoming parents. They will go by the calendar, and figure in their current age, and try to conceive on that particular time of the month, going by the calendar to try to plan their perfect “dream family,” whether it is starting with trying for a girl or boy. Desperate parents that also have 4 boys, and are desperate for a girl will also go to the Chinese calendar to try once more, in hopes of getting the results that they want.
Although the calendar can’t be completely accurate, a lot of people swear on anything that it is true and that you will get the results that you want when trying to have a baby, or that you will be able to find out what you are going to have. Even though you can never be sure, it is still a fun activity to do, and if it comes out true, that is a plus as well!
