How to know the sex of the unborn child

You found out you are expecting a baby and there are many questions you ask yourself. After the initial fears for this happy event, you will surely ask yourself: it will be male or female? This is the most intriguing aspect of all expectant mothers.

Let's see together an easy and fun tool to discover, based on simple data, the sex of the unborn child: the Chinese pregnancy calendar. Obviously the ways to find out with certainty the sex of the child are amniocentesis, the fetal dna test or the morphological.

There is no scientific basis and it is not a reliable tool.

The Country Committee for the Control of Claims on Pseudosciences, clearly states that there is no scientific evidence that proves the reliability of this tool.

With the Chinese pregnancy calendar, however, you can have fun and try to guess.

How the Chinese calendar method works

To know the sex of the unborn child based on the Chinese calendar method, look at the following table and cross two data: the month in which you have conceived your baby and your age at the moment of conception.

The table is composed as follows: a first column on the left indicates the age, while the first row at the top expresses the months of the year.
The column on the far left is dedicated to the percentages that indicate the more or less high possibility that the child is male or female.

Finally, at the bottom, there is a row also composed of percentages that indicate the probability of having one girl or boy based on the month of conception.

Of course, take the result with philosophy!

The odds of having a boy or a girl

There are many ways to know, even before doing the defined ultrasound, if the baby you are expecting will be male or female. There are some extravagant methods and among them there is certainly the Chinese pregnancy calendar.

According to the table found in China, if you hope it is blue bow, the probability increases in the month of July, when the woman is 18, 20, 30 or 42 years old.

If, on the other hand, you strongly hope for the pink ribbon, you have the greatest possibilities at 21, 22 or 29 years and in particular in the month of April.

It's really true: a pregnant woman during the nine months that separates her from childbirth really feels all the colors: starting from belly shape, up to the appearance of the skin. It is important not to be influenced and to rely only on your gynecologist who will be able to give the good news with official tests such as morphology and amniocentesis.

The possible combinations month by month

Observing the table of the Chinese pregnancy calendar, we can do gods predictions month by month.

For example, consamo January, February and March:

  • a January the possibility of getting pregnant with a prevails male, but if we cross this data with age, we must exclude 18, 20, 22, 25, 27, 29, 33, 37, 39, 41 and 43, these are the years you must be if you want to be more likely to conceive a Sissy.
  • a February and March you have a 50% chance of getting pregnant with a child rather than a little girl.

In the quarter April, May and June here's what the table says:

  • ad April the conception of one prevails Sissy except for those who are 18, 20, 24, 25, 26, 27, 30, 31, 32, 36 and 42 years old.
  • a May instead, the blue ribbon is more likely.
  • a June the chances of becoming a mother to a boy or girl are the same

Let's see the following months:

  • a July all women who wish to have a child can try to have a child male, in fact in these months the probability of blue bow is larger than the pink bow.
  • the same is not true for August, where the odds are the same.
  • a September it's time to hope for all couples looking for a sissy.
  • a October is the conception is predominantly of males, except for those who are 20, 21, 22, 27, 28, 31, 36, 38, 40, 41 years of age.
  • a November on the other hand, the possibility of having a baby girl is very high.
  • a December the odds of conceiving a boy or a girl are equal.

Twin births for the Chinese calendar

The table to which we are referring does not take into account any twin births. So how to act in these cases?

It's very simple: try to cross the data, the mother's age and the month of conception, then look at the calendar answer.

You may be pregnant with two male twins, or two females. Only the in-depth examinations planned for the pregnant woman can confirm or disprove these hypotheses. You may even expect a pair of male and female twins!

Mayan calendar for conception

Also Maya they had created a table for predicting the sex of the unborn child. A calendar very similar to the Chinese one in which the maternal age and the month of conception must be crossed. In general we can conclude that, according to the Mayan calendar, if the numbers are both even or both odd, a girl will be born, while if you have an even and odd number, a boy will be born.

Conception and lunar calendar

Another method for determining the sex of the child is to observe the moon phases. Also in this case, the beliefs are not lacking, so as already said before, always remember to take the final result ... with philosophy! It is simply another little game to play as a simple pastime.

What determines whether it will be pink or blue is the type of sperm that will fertilize the egg. If it is a Y sperm it will give rise to the XY zygote from which a boy will come to life. If it is an X sperm, it will give rise to the XX zygote from which a girl will develop.

If you want to questioning the moon for fun about the sex of your baby, you need to know right or wrong when you ovulate or when you ovulated at the time of conception. Ovulation usually occurs a couple of weeks before the next cycle, in a 28-day cycle around the 14th day.

  • full moon: female (most likely)
  • new Moon: male (most likely)
  • Crescent Moon (we go towards the full moon): female
  • Falling moon (we go to the new moon): male
