Most Accurate Chinese Gender Predictor Chart
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 accurate are 12 week ultrasounds with gender? They were incorrect with my last child so just want to know if they are most likely wrong again?

What s the success of modified ericsson method for gender selection of boy. My gun said 85 %. Is that accurate. I want scientific and stat based?

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

How accurate is an ultrasound at 18 weeks 5 days in determining gender? We had 2 different techs; one told us girl and the other said it was a boy.

How accurate is ultrasound done at 20 weeks for gender determination of fetus. Is obstretics ultrasound with same accuracy. Same question for 22 wks?
Depends.: My rule has always been: don't guess! If the fetus is in a poor position for viewing the genitals then no determination can be made. At 20 weeks, if the genital region is visible there is a very high level of accuracy for gender determination. It all depends on the skill of the person doing the scan. ...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
16week1day ultrasound, how accurate will be the gender. The doctor looked on the bottom and mentioned still can't see. But then comment most likely girl?
Variable results: Gender determination by ultrasound is often difficult if baby is not in a position that allows a good view. Many techs/docs are less confident on studies before 20 weeks than after. I can remember an occasion where a family painted the nursery and bought all pink baby clothes only to find out at delivery that baby hid his equipment during the ultrasound. ...Read more

How accurate is ultrasound at 16 weeks pregnancy for gender detection if baby cooperate. Is it 80% or 85% or 95%. Based on experience and medical papers?
Depends on fetus:
16 weeks is quite early, and there is never a guarantee. If the fetus spreads it's legs and is in the right position for the us technologist, it can be very easy to tell the gender. If the fetus does not cooperate, then the accuracy goes down, to just guessing or flipping a coin (50%).
It is easier to tell at 20 weeks or so (everything is bigger). Ask the tech how confident they are. ...Read more
