When you discover that you are going to have a baby, one of the first questions that you are bound to have is, what gender will my baby be? Will it be a boy or a girl?
If you can't wait for baby to be born to know what it will be, then the Mayan Gender Predictor Calendar Chart is a fun way to predict the sex of your unborn child.
It uses the Mayan lunar calendar and predicts what sex your baby will be by considering the age of the the mother at conception, and the month in which baby is conceived.
This is a very simple one. You just have to work out the number of the month which your baby is conceived - if it is conceived in January, the month is one, February is two etc. Next think of your age when the baby was conceived.
If the number of the month of conception and your age are both odd or both even numbers, your baby will be a girl. If one number is odd and one is even, you will have a boy.
Just remember that method of predicting a baby's gender, of course, has absolutely no scientific basis, it is just a bit of fun. Well, you have a 50% chance that it will be right!
