    I have just totally freaked myself out with something i thought i would be taking the mickey out of!!

    My sister in law sent me a link (below) to a gender prediction thing based on the chinese lunar calendar, you have to put in the mothers DOB and the conception date of said baby. I thought she was very gullible for even looking at something like that... but was bored, so had a little look

    I literally tried it on everyone i could with whom i knew their birthday and their mums bday. To work out the conception date i just counted back 40 weeks from their bday then took off two weeks, so roughly OV date for the average woman (i realize that this wouldnt be completely accurate but who knows when their freinds and family were concieved?!)

    So anyway, every single one was right, it also said that my first baby would have been a boy, and this pregnancy is a girl

    Now i really don't believe in all that but FREAKY OR WHAT!!!!???

    VERY freaky! I'm quite cynical like you when it comes to things like this but I might have to try it as I'm quite intrigued now :) are you finding out the gender before baby arrives? If so, let me know if it was accurate for you! X

    It predicted my second borns right, boy.
    Can't find out if my first would have been right as I was too young. But it says girl for this one, so I hope so!
    A little confusion that not many people know is that you add a year to how old you were when you conceived, so I'm 21 and in chinese years I'd be 22.

    they do that in Turkey too, as in when your born you are in your first year so you're 1 from the start. Glad I don't live there as I would be 30 already :p

    Lol it's weird isn't it, as technically you wouldn't be 1 year old at birth, you'd be 10 months.
