The Origin of Chinese Baby Gender Prediction Chart


The Chinese Baby Gender Pregnancy Calendar Prediction Chart was published in Taiwanese newspapers in 1972. Since then, the Chinese Farmer's Almanac publishes the Baby Gender Pregnancy Calendar Chart every year. It is said that the documents for the Ching (Ching Dynasty) Dynasty's Baby Gender Calendar Chart disappeared at the Emperor's Summer Resort after the Ching Dynasty lost the battle with the Eight-Nation Alliance in 1900. The documents were sent to the Britian. After translating, since the original documents were written in the Manchu language, the King of Britain kept them as treasures. Later on, the documents appeared in Austria and a Chinese scholar saw them. He copied the contents, brought it back to China, and published them in the newspaper.

There are different stories circulating on the Internet about the Chinese Gender Pregnancy Chart. Some rumors say the chart was found in a tomb of loyal family of Ching Dynasty and was estimated around 700 hundred years old. Other rumors say the chart was found in the underground storage room of the Forbidden City of the Ching Dynasty. The chart was deduced from the theory of Yin Yang, Five Elements (Metal, Water, Wood, Fire and Earth) and Pa Kua (Eight Trigrams). Rumors also say that the Baby Gender Prediction Chart had been studied by the Chinese Academy of Sciences Research Center.

The Chart shows the relationship between Age and Conception Month. The age is the Chinese age for women. The month is the Chinese lunar months used in the Ching Dynasty. The Chinese used Chinese lunar calendar until 1912, which was the first year of the Republic of China.

Today, the Chinese still use Chinese Lunar Calendar to count their age. The Chinese treat a baby as a one year old when born. They then add to their age on each following Chinese New Year Day. If a baby was born on the Chinese New Year Eve, then the baby becomes two years old on the next day on the Chinese New Year Day.

In the Calendar Chart, B indicates boy and blank indicates girl in the chart. This is a statistical chart. B means the chance is higher of having a boy than a girl.
