Can an ancient Chinese calendar really predict the gender of your baby? Take American Baby's simple quiz and find out. The results could spill the beans about whether you're having a boy or girl!

Back when I was prego, I relied on a few different methods to figure out if I was having a boy or a girl. First, was the old wives tales - - which were accurate - because less than 9 months later a baby girl popped out! And the second time around, here's what I used to figure out if baby #2 was a boy or a girl - Lo and behold, it was a boy! So do old wives tales and gender prediction charts really work? I'd say YES to the "beauty marks" because it happened with Paige but didn't happen to me while pregnant with Deacon. And KIND OF YES to the gender prediction charts - if you use the official one (like the link I have above) the results are pretty spot-on. The swinging ring over the belly? BIG FAT NO. Didn't work.

BUT - back when we were working on making baby #2, I did a bit of research and found out that there are some ways to tip the odds of one gender over another in your favor. And for us, it worked. Check out my "Trying For a Specific Gender?" post here:
