There are many fun ways to try to conceive a boy or a girl, or to predict your baby’s gender once you are already pregnant. While some people might be worried about how ethical it is to try to predict or influence the sex of your baby, for most expectant parents, baby gender prediction is simply a fun tool that helps them enjoy the pregnancy even more. Even though you may have a secret preference for a boy or a girl, you’ll of course love your child no matter what the gender. But if you already have three boys, for example, it might be fun to try a few methods to see if you can end up with a girl this time around.
One fun way to try to predict or influence baby gender is a Chinese pregnancy lunar calendar. A Chinese pregnancy lunar calendar displays different dates and tells you whether you’re having a boy or a girl based on your age and the month that you conceived. Legend has it that this chart is over 90% accurate and was discovered in an ancient tomb. Even though a Chinese pregnancy lunar calendar might be just for fun, there are other methods that you can use alongside a Chinese pregnancy lunar calendar that have a scientific basis for helping you determine baby gender and perhaps helping you conceive that long awaited boy or girl.
Timing of conception actually is important, or so it seems, in determining baby gender. The way timing of conception works is that the closer intercourse occurs to ovulation – when a woman’s egg is released from the ovary – the more likely she is to have a baby boy. Even though it seems unlikely, there really is a scientific reason for this. The reason is that the sperm that create a boy move very quickly, so if the egg has just been released, they’re more likely to get there faster and fertilize the egg.
If you want to conceive a girl, couples should try timing intercourse a few days before a woman thinks she will ovulate. This can be pretty tricky, since not all women ovulate at the same time every month. Most women ovulate around mid-cycle. In any case, the reason this method works is because the sperm that result in a baby girl are much hardier, but slower moving than boy sperm. If they are released a couple of days before a woman ovulates, they will be waiting for the newly released egg, and the rest of the sperm will have already died.
The best thing to do might be to try a combination of the Chinese pregnancy lunar calendar and timing sex to see if you can choose a boy or a girl. If you’re already pregnant, you might be able to use these tools to predict your baby’s gender. Whatever gender your baby is, make sure you enjoy your pregnancy, and enjoy your precious bundle when he or she finally arrives!
