Ancient Chinese Birth Giving Chart (古代生育表)

There was this article in the local Chinese News paper about an ancient imperial birth giving chart that was 700 years old uncovered in China. Based on this chart, by chosing the month for getting pregnant, you have a 99% chance of getting the the indicated sex of the baby.

I find this quite interesting, so have decided to upload the chart (both in English and Chinese).

The month is computed using Chinese Lunar Month and the age is computed using the Chinese method where the age in the chart is to add 1 year after every Chinese New Year. And each person is considered 1 years old at the time of birth.

Don’t take this too seriously, just for the fun of it.

Note: The age is computed based on the Chinese computation method where a person is 1 years old when born.  The simple method is to just add 1 more years to the current age. The actual computation of the age in the chart is to add 1 year after every Chinese New Year
