There is this funny little gender predictor out there called the Chinese Gender Chart. Google it. It's kinda fun, once you figure out all the lunar month/lunar year stuff. For instance, I turned 27 in March, but I am actually 28 in Chinese lunar years. Anyway, this gender predictor chart uses your lunar age in conjunction with your month of conception to predict which gender you will have.
My dilemma is this: I was born in March, the month we conceived. So I was both 26 and 27 (or 27 and 28?) in the same month that Button was conceived. This wouldn't be such an issue if the gender prediction didn't change from age to age (at lunar age 27, it would be a boy, at lunar age 28, it would be a girl).
On one site that uses old wives tales, I'm getting a 62% boy prediction, on another (detailed a bit more below), a 60% girl prediction. I've not heard a heartbeat yet, so I've nothing more to go on.
And yet, for the simple humor of the thing I have decided to take votes. I'm wildly curious as to whether any of my readers has a thought one way or the other as to what we're having. I can guess it for just about anybody but myself (Piper was supposed to be a boy), so here's a throw-out to woman's intuition - can you guess?
Oy. And when you leave your guess, just for fun, throw in a name you like for the gender you guess!
