The Chinese Pregnancy Calendar
There exist a Chinese Pregnancy Calendar that can predict the sex of a baby.
It is believed to be unearthed from an ancient tomb approx 700 years ago. During the Qing Dynasty (1644 – 1911 AD) it was kept by castrated servants in the palace and shown only to members of the noble household.
By the late Qing dynasty, China was in turmoil. The joint forces of nations conquered and siege the capital. Many precious items including this Chinese Pregnancy Calendar were taken away. It apparently fell into the hands of the English nobles who translated and used it. After that the whereabouts was unknown until it showed up again later.
Origin of the Chinese Pregnancy Calendar
This Chinese Pregnancy Calendar whose origin is unknown is reputed to be based on the Yin Yang, Five elements and the Bagua or Eight Trigram and its prediction is believe to be quite accurate.
In order to predict the sex of the baby, you need the month of conception and your age based on the Chinese Lunar Calendar.
If you are born before the Chinese Lunar Calendar, you Lunar Calendar age is simply your current age plus one. Why plus one? The ancient Chinese takes the 9 months that you spent in your month’s womb into consideration. For example if you are born June 1980. According to the western calendar you are 26 years old in the year 2006. But according to the Chinese Lunar Calendar you are 27 years old (include the 9 months in your mother’s womb).
The Lunar month is much harder to figure out. You can use this Calendar converter to compute. Just enter the date of conception and you can get the lunar equivalent month.
For example the lunar month of the western date 22 September 2006 is the Eight Month.
