I believe, that in a moment of honesty, parents have a slight preference. After having one child, a lot of parents hope for the opposite. Or, after seeing you brother wrestle his difficult son to the ground in a moment of tantrum you envision a girl being easier. You have a close bond with a parent, and want the same for yourself. We all have our reasons.
About a year ago I came across the Chinese Birth Chart. I tend not to put much stock in things like this, but I've heard people swear by it. They plan their familes around it.
Last week, one of my best friends went to her Ob/Gyn to find out the sex of her baby. All along, I was convinced she was having a girl. Then, the morning of her appointment (while in the shower) I remembered the Chinese Birth Chart. Still dripping wet, I googled the birth chart and saw that she was predicted to have a boy. I texted her immediately and said that I doubted my original guess.
Guess what? I'm now going to be an "auntie" to a little boy. It was right!
Funny coincidence? Or does this thing actually work? Did the Chinese Birth Chart work for you? I'm curious!
