If you are pregnant then everyone around you wants to know the gender of your baby.
Your granny, parents, in laws, friends, siblings, etc. everyone is excited and want to know whether they should be gifting you pink boots or the blue one.
Many mid-wife’s or Daima’s, as they are popularly called in India, claim to have some fool proof methods to tell you whether it’s going to be a boy or a girl.
The most popular of all, is the ‘Chinese Gender Predictor’
The Chinese Gender Predictor
It is based on calculations involving details pertaining to the lunar month of conception and the expecting mother’s age at the time of conception.
So, the logic is that if the mother’s date of birth and the lunar month (as per the Chinese calendar) both comes out to be odd or even, then it is a girl and if one is even and the other is odd then it is a boy.
How to calculate the mother’s lunar age at the time of conception?
For this, the calculators are available online on any relevant websites.
You need the date of conception which is the first day of your last menses and your date of birth.
Feed in these details on the predictor and you get the result. The Gregorian-Chinese calendar converters are also widely available online for you to convert the dates as per the Chinese calendar.
This may sound illogical, but over the years’ people have been using this predictor widely to know the gender of the babies.
