What are you having is a common question pregnant women are often asked. On the internet, you can find quite a bunch of various gender prediction methods that can be applied for comparison. Let’s take a closer look at one of the most intriguing. Among numerous gender prediction tools, the Mayan gender predictor is claimed to be around 85% accurate in determining the baby’s sex despite no scientific proof.
When talking about how Mayans contributed to modern civilization, they are known to introduce the concept of ‘0’ (zero) to the world and implement the advanced writing system. A tribe of Maya is known for developing even such a specific invention as a gender prediction calendar. From ancient times, people have been trying to develop effective ways of predicting the age of unborn babies. Being talented astronomists, Mayans have developed a child prediction method that they themselves used to predetermine the child’s gender.
The idea behind the Mayan gender prediction method consists in discovering the child’s sex based on the mother’s age and month of conceiving. While this method is far from scientific as it uses only maths, astronomy and some cultural beliefs, many mothers-to-be still find it interesting. They often use it to get confirmation of other tests’ results or just for entertainment purposes. Many couples rely on it when planning pregnancy and conceiving a child, that is trying to influence the gender of a child.
How to use the Mayan Gender Prediction Chart
To tell the truth, not many people heard about determining the sex of a baby with the Mayan baby gender prediction calendar. However, it still shows a 50% accuracy rate. As for the question who can apply this method, the range includes women between 18 and around 40 years old.
Finding out the sex of your baby with the Mayan gender prediction method is extremely easy. If you take a look at the Mayan gender prediction chart below, you will see that it consists of the left-hand column and upper row that are responsible for the mother’s age and month of conceiving the baby respectively. For example, if the numbers for mother’s age and conception month are both even or both odd, she is likely to have a girl. In the opposite case, when one number is even and one is odd, she is probably pregnant with a boy.
For example, if the mother was 27 (odd) at the time of conception and the month of conception year was March (odd), then she would probably be carrying a girl. In the opposite case, if the mother was 26 (even) at the time of conception and her conception month was March (odd) too, she would be carrying a boy.
How is the Mayan Gender Prediction Method different from other methods?
Mayan and Chinese pregnancy charts are often confused as they look very similar. While they both are used to predict whether the expecting mother will be having a little boy or girl, in the Chinese gender prediction chart, the lunar age and conception month are required. The Mayan gender chart calculator works in a slightly different way as it uses the odd and even numbers of the mother’s age and month of conception. While the Chinese pregnancy chart is very popular around the world, the Mayan gender prediction method is much easier to use.
Another popular method is the Shettles method that combines such specific indicators as the sex position, intercourse timing, the depth of penetration. You might be surprised but even such minor details might be helpful in revealing the gender of a child quite accurately. Many mothers simply take into consideration only their physical symptoms like heartburn, state of skin and hair, nausea, morning sickness and so on.
The Top Gender Determination Theories
When using the Mayan baby gender method, keep in mind that its results cannot be as reliable as those obtained through a medical exam or ultrasound. There are some much more accurate and reliable methods that include Ramzi, Nub, Skull, 20-week anatomy theory.
The thing is the sex of an unborn child can be determined through the medical exam when some gender related features become visible (at 6-8 weeks of pregnancy). The accuracy may reach up to 98%, however, it depends on a number of factors including:
- The time of an ultrasound scan. It is recommended to carry out the ultrasound examination not earlier than at 12 weeks of pregnancy. Given the fact that genitalia might not be fully external yet, it is recommended to apply a 20-week anatomy scan.
- The position of a baby. Information about the placement and orientation of the fetus may be highly effective in determining its gender. In this case, the Ramzi theory is used.
- The presence of multiple babies. If a woman carries two children, it can make a determination of their sex a bit more complicated. Given the fact that two children in one womb may keep their legs together, it is recommended to use Skull theory. It works by identifying the shape, size, and other related factors of the baby’s skull.
- The position of the genital tubercle. A baby needs to be in an ideal position to get an accurate result. For example, the angle of genital tubercle in relation to the spine is quite a reliable factor to take into account when using the Nub theory.
