Is the chinese baby gender predictor chart accurate?

Is the chinese baby gender predictor chart accurate?

The odd is ~50/50 : There isn't a sure way to get pregnant with a boy or a girl based on day the week to have relation--there are some anecdotal report to suggest certain time of day favors girl vs boy pregnancy, but no conclusive research. The only sure way is to determine genetically is via insemination etc..Otherwise, your chance is just about 50/50 naturally--same as flipping a coin for head or tail. Good luck. ...Read more

How accuate a normal ultrasound in predicting baby gender 12.5 weeks aftet pregnancy. Gyn. Said he believes baby boy. How accurate in percentage plz?

Maybe,maybe not: The equipment may be formed by 12.5 wks but most will not stake their reputation on a reading that early, confirmation around 18-20 wks would be nice. In any case, if the equipment doesn't come out to be found, it can be missed .I've had parents paint the nursery for a girl based on us & get a surprise at delivery. ...Read more

Simple measures: Expected height from parent stature is equal to the average parent height (m+d/2) + 2.5 inches for males, -2.5 in for girls.Grandparent height is not used but may point to variations in accuracy of the method. This is only a basic predicted height. Some very tall or very short people come from normal sized parents, & a life's medical & nutritional issues can slow the growth of anyone. ...Read more

My Wilde 22 weeks Pregnatn. Fetal Haeart Rate is 134 bpm. his Boy or Girl Please Help.

My Wilde 22 weeks Pregnatn. Fetal Haeart Rate is 134 bpm. his Boy or Girl Please Help.

Ultrasound : If you're asking whether it is possible to ascertain the gender of the baby from fetal heart rate, it is not possible. This would require an ultrasound which, at 22 weeks, can usually show gender. If you're asking whether 134 bpm is a safe or normal heart rate for a 22 week fetus, the answer is yes. 110-170 is a normal range at that age. These questions can be answered during her next OB visit! ...Read more

Is man sperms totally responsible for the baby's gender ?

Is man sperms totally responsible for the baby's gender ?

Yes: All eggs contain only x chromosomes. About half the sperms have x chromosomes ; half have a y chromsome instead. If the x chromosome fertilizes the egg the baby becomes a girl ; if sperm has a y chromosome the baby becomes a boy. The eggs can not possibly influence gender (i guess they could if they had a choice whether to be fertilized by a x or y sperm, but there is no evidence this can happen). ...Read more

Are baby gender ultrasounds accurate? Is there any chance that an ultrasound showing my baby's gender is wrong? I'd hate to completely prepare for a b?

Depends on variables: I would never decorate my nursery based on a baby gender ultrasound. Those done around 20 weeks are likely to be accurate in the hands of a skilled technician, but the boy parts must decide to show themselves or they may be overlooked.I've heard of more moms being surprised by boys than girls. ...Read more
