The Chinese Birth Calendar, also called a Chinese gender chart, is a way to predict your baby's gender by inputting the mother's age and the month of conception.

This method is considered by some to be 99 percent accurate -- however, you must convert both your age and the month of conception to the Chinese calendar.

The Chinese calendar combines the lunar and solar systems
, which makes it different from the Western Gregorian calendar. Chinese Fortune Calendar web site allows you to convert your age and to convert the month of conception.

The site also has an online converter which adjusts both your age and the month of conception at once to predict your baby's gender with one click.

Although many claim the Chinese gender chart is accurate, it's not a scientific method. It can, however, be another great baby prediction game to play during your pregnancy.
