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

Please see doctor: You sound very uncomfortable about things you cannot change -- like your height, which to a great degree is genetically determined, and at 21 is unlikely to change. (the growth plates in most people's bones are closed by that time.) in this & other questions you have mentioned suicide, guilty, etc. Please see a doctor for treatment as soon as possible -- a psychiatrist can help you with this. ...Read more

What is estimated adult height for 16 yr old girl, period at 15 yr 0 months, dad 5'5 mom 5'4.5 .. currently 5'2.5. stageV tanner scale US size6.5 shoe?

Target height: Target height range for female with parent heights dad: 5'5" mom: 5.4.5" Target height would be 4ft 11in to 5ft 5in - Since already 5'2.5", start there...

19years old, 5'6, 33in inseam, ~18inch spine, dad 5'11(same inseam as me), mom 5'2. What are the chances of me growing 3-5 inches?

19years old, 5'6, 33in inseam, ~18inch spine, dad 5'11(same inseam as me), mom 5'2. What are the chances of me growing 3-5 inches?

Almost nil: You are too old to grow more now. Your height is based on genetics and a lifetime of proper nutrition and exercise. Based on your mom and dad's height, you are right where you should be genetically. If you are lucky, you may grow less than an inch but no way at all you will grow 3-5 inches. That is impossible. ...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

Unlikely to happen: At seventeen your growth centers have likely closed and you are unlikely to grow taller.If you want to know for sure an x-ray of your wrist ; hand can be analysed for bone maturity ; tell if the growth centers remain open to new growth.Good nutrition, rest and exercise allow a person to reach their tallest height while the opposite will stunt growth. ...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?

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
