I posted this within a message but I'd love to hear how accurate it is for everyone.

It's worked for me so far!

Well, it said girl for Boo (which was correct) and boy for the June Bug (which is what the u/s said) ... guess we'll find out for sure in June

Well, it was "accurate" for all four of mine.

Side note: a friend of mine who IS chinese used that chart before and it was wrong for both of hers.

Be aware that there are some "quicky" charts out there that don't take the mother's LUNAR year into account. I think this chart is showing 80% accuracy from the tests I've ran.

Still interested in more responses!

Wrong for my first two. It says this one is going to be a girl, so we'll see on the third. (I have a hunch this one is a boy, so it may very well be wrong on all 3 counts!)

Hmm ... it was accurate for my first two (assuming I'm remembering correctly things like conception dates ), and says this one is a girl. We don't know (and I have no inkling really one way or the other), so I'm guessing we'll have to wait until the first of June to find out.

It says girl, and that's what the u/s said too (and was *very* clear). We'll find out in about 14 weeks!!

It was 100% correct both times for us.

But I have heard people say that the chart said they were having girls every time and all they have is boys.

It was correct for dd #1. It says this one will be a boy, but ultrasound says it will be a girl.

OK- of the 35 times that someone consulted the chart, this very "scientific" calculation I did was based on how many kids people consulted the chart for-
for example if some one posted "For dd1 it was right, for dd2 it was wrong" I put a point on correct and a point on incorrect.

correct-17 times
in correct-18 times

so I guess its an almost 50% chance of being one or the other. Wait a minute- isn't it a chance of 50/50 anyway of boy or girl??

According to this, it said i was having a boy, according to the u/s i am having a girl. But my conception date could be off by almost 9 days, and when i used another date in september it said girl.

Jumping in from July. I am pregnant with my 4th and with each pregnancy the chart has told me it was a boy. I now have three boys with one more (it's a sure thing) on the way.

I'm like a walking advertisement for the chinese gender chart, though I in no way put any stock in it.

Same here. It was right for all 4 of mine. I will say though that I was very skeptical when it said girl this time but even the u/s agreed!

It was correct for this one -- says I'm having a girl and I am.

It said boy for me, and that's what the u/s said, too!

This is the first of the chinese gender charts that "worked" for me though - usually they say we're having a girl...
