I hate to rain on your parade but there was thread about this a year or so ago, and I think our resident statistician Zebra pointed out that whatever the method of conjecture and calculation there is only ever a fifty fifty chance of being right

With my 2 ds's it was wrong for the first & right for the second, so pretty much 50/50 for me!

stressedmummy Sun 09-Jan-05 14:01:20

It also proved wrong for my Mum!

As a bit of fun it's worth doing but don't decorate pink or blue on the basis of the results. It was correct for me but then it had a 50% chance of getting it right.

It worked for me!

It seems to be correct for some Mums not so for others, which tells me that it is 50/50!
I think it is fine for a bit of fun, but the only way to really find out is by having a scan.
It was wrong for 1 of mine & right for the other!

I tested this chart on a friend who has 3 girls.
It said that her first 2 were girls but that no3 was a boy.
Her third child is her girliest of the lot!

can i ask what this is???

JanH Mon 10-Jan-05 13:51:06

And there are 2 charts, and they are different!

blueteddy Mon 10-Jan-05 13:51:45

It is some chart that is supposed to predict the sex of your baby based on the month u conceive & your age at the time.
It was apparantly dug up from some egyption tomb or something!
Basically, it is a load of pink & blue squares on a chart which you match up with your age & month of conception & it is ment to tell you the sex child you are having!
It was in Decembers Mother & baby mag.

blueteddy Mon 10-Jan-05 13:53:20

Some people are convinced by it & others, like myself are not taken in atall!
I think the chart works out pretty much 50/50!

JanH Mon 10-Jan-05 13:53:20

This is one, BH.

JanH Mon 10-Jan-05 13:54:41

This is the other one - that was easy!

Look at the predictions for mother aged 30.

blueteddy Mon 10-Jan-05 13:57:01

Well that first 1 made both my boys girls!

"This chart is believed to have been buried in a tomb near Beijing for almost 700 years and the original is now in the Beijing Institute of Science"

was right for dd1, but wrong for dd2. so 50/50!

blueteddy Mon 10-Jan-05 14:18:05

The 2 charts are completly different!!!
Where's the science?!

blossom2 Mon 10-Jan-05 14:20:51

both charts say i'm going to have a girl in August!!!! was wrong about DD though - should have been a boy!

JanH Mon 10-Jan-05 14:23:59

Sorry, blossom2, have just realised I thought you were blossomhill (hence BH) and you aren't

blossom2 Mon 10-Jan-05 14:28:46

eh, thats okay JanH !!!

maomao Mon 10-Jan-05 14:29:21

Well, if I read both charts correctly (very good chance that I didn't), then one chart said I would have had a girl, and the other said I would have had a boy. Very helpful, indeed!

lailag Mon 10-Jan-05 14:49:57

the second chart one says lunar age in lunar months, approximately 2 y more than conventional, what isthat supposed to mean??

blueteddy Mon 10-Jan-05 14:51:08

Something about your chinese age I think!
