Chinese pregnancy Calendar based on the Chinese Lunar Calendar and Used to Determine
The Gender of Your Baby

Most of the Chinese Pregnancy Calendar you find on the web tell you that it is based on the mother’s lunar age, but do not tell you how to go about calculating it. The age starts at conception, basically you are 9 months in age behind the Chinese lunar age. Another minor issue that throws off the accuracy by a few percentages, is that our months are based on the Gregorian calendar, and the Chinese Pregnancy Calendar Lunar months vary slightly. So we add another year after the Chinese New Year, leave a comment on the accuracy of the chart.

To find the gender prediction, find the mother’s age at conception (across the top of the table) and then the month in which conception occurred. Follow the column and row to the intersecting point. The color of the box tells you what the prediction is. Blue = Boy and Pink = Girl

How to use Chinese Pregnancy Calendar to determine gender

The Chinese Pregnancy Calendar rarely seems random when you are actually looking at it. If the mother to be was 18 when she conceived the baby, the odds of the child turning out to be boy are 10 out of 12. where as 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.

As legend would have it, the Chinese Pregnancy Calendar 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 mother  when the baby was conceived and the month in which the baby was conceived . 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 calculate your Chinese lunar age in the  Chinese Pregnancy Calendar

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 our Chinese  Lunar age:

Y1 – Y2 +1 = CA

* CA = Chinese Lunar 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!

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!  That’s the Chinese  Pregnancy Calendar.

To find the gender prediction, find the mother’s age at conception (across the top of the table) and then the month in which conception occurred. Follow the column and row to the intersecting point. The color of the box tells you what the prediction is. Blue = Boy and Pink = Girl in the Chinese Pregnancy Calendar.

  1. It’s so hard to know how accurate the calendar is without having deep knowledge of the the differences between the lunar calendar and the Gregorian calendar. Are there more than 12 months in the lunar calendar?
    I’ve been also thinking of saving my baby’s cord blood.
