Question Chinese Birth Chart

Has anyone ever used the Chinese Birth Chart? What were your experiences with it?

Even though my little angel is not here yet the chart was wrong. It said I should be having a boy and the Dr. said my darling is a girl. The needle test was correct for me though!!

Unfortunately, there seems to be a few different versions of the Chinese Gender chart. I have seen at least three different ones, that gave different answers.

Wrong for me too. All of them said boy for me. I am having a girl. The needle test was right for me.

The gender chart said a boy for me, and the needle did too.

We'll find out May 12 if they are right.

I used to have a gut feeling we were having a boy, now I kinda think it's a girl...so who knows>?!

I've also gotten two different results on the chart. The discrepancy was caused by my age at conception. For example, I turned 34 in April, but conceived in January so I would have considered myself 33 when I conceived. And that's what I put down when calculating it on my own. But some sites calculate it for you and they put me at 34 because I was in my 34th year. I know that some cultures calculate age this way (not sure how the Chinese look at it). Perhaps that's where some of the confusion and conflicting results stem from. Just a thought.

The needle test said I was having a girl. I thought that test was really wild - especially since I got the same results for my husband (girl and then boy). It was moving around in circles really fast and picking up speed and I wasn't even moving my hand at all. Very weird!

Question

What is the "needle" test, if I may ask?

Most Chinese charts said girl for us, only one or two said boy. The u/s says girl. So it was "mostly" right I guess. :} The needle test said boy too though...but that could have been my own wishes influencing the test...

I think I've said this before, but the funny thing to me is that I conceived sometime right around my 22nd birthday, but I was never sure if it was the day before, of, or after... hee hee. If I was 21 when I conceived, it said boy (which it is) and if I was 22 it said girl. So I really have no idea.
