It was originally used by Chinese royalty to help swell the ranks of male babies, thus ensuring the continuation of the royal line.
Based on the Chinese Lunar calendar, the chart uses a combination of the mother's age at the time of conception and the month in which the baby is conceived to 'predict' whether the baby will be a boy or a girl.
If you're pregnant and want to know whether your baby is a boy or a girl, or planning a pregnancy and have a strong preference for whether you conceive a baby boy or a baby girl, some believe the Chinese Conception Calendar should be your first port of call.
Also called the Chinese Pregnancy Calendar, the chart was discovered hundreds of years ago and still exists at Beijing's Institute of Science.

To use the Chinese Pregnancy Calendar you simply find your age at the time of conception, then trace along the corresponding line on the chart until you reach the month in which you conceived.
