How Many of You Mama's Believe in the Chinese Gender Calendar?

So I just found out my best friend is having a little boy.. she believes in the Chinese Gender Calendar and relies on it. Its kinda funny. It predicted she would have a boy.. and sure enough she is having a boy. So far it has worked for everyone I know, including myself with my first. Im desperately wanting a girl, and I know ill be happy with whatever I get as long as its healthy. How many of you mama's tried it? Was it accurate? Now I know the gender is up to the men... but still? I'd love to hear some feedback!

What can I do next?

It was right with all three of my children (a girl and two boys), but it was wrong for a lot of people I know.

Nope, it was wrong both times for me. It said my twin boys should have been a girl. Now, it says my little girl due this summer should have been a boy.

I COMPLETELY believe in it. it is actually proven to be 97% accurate. but what alot of people dont know is that you are supposed to go by your LUNAR age. which is different than your actual age. see i am 21. but my lunar age is 23.
it was right for my SIL, for ME, and for all my friends that have been pregnant!

edit: Here is a couple charts where you can find out your lunar age

It didn't work for me. It said my boys should've been girls. :)

Worked for us... one boy and one girl! :)

You have a 50% chance it will be right...teehee

Well I still have to give birth so lets see...but the calendar has predicted I will have a boy, AND on New Year's Eve 2010 a woman came up to my husband and me and said (out of the blue) that we would have a boy child by Nov 2011. Naturally, we were skeptical and slightly weirded out by this-we aren't very mystical people and esp., as we really were only considering conceiving in the coming months - not days. Lo and behold, we conceived about 6 days later after this "prophesy", sex unknown, but giving birth before November!

Well -- it has a 50% chance of being right :)

I checked my ovulation calender from when i got pregnant and it was spot on correct. it was weird but true for me.
