Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

The letter is right.  16+24 is 40.  your pregnant for 40 weeks.  It maybe off a day or 2, all pregnancy calendars are off a little bit, even as much as a week.  Don't worry about the "to the day" dates.  your babies development will still be ok as long as the doc says things are moving along good. 
theres no exact time that your gonna have your baby its all estimated so it could be a little off
my newsletters were 2 weeks off at one point . lol dont worry about it; if you know how far along you are then dont worry about tthe newsletters
ok. thank you everyone. Its just I never had a site or anything like this that I could run by kinda with my first child.
If you are having a boy, there is a good chance he will be late and a girl would be early. Not true for everyone but it worked that way for both of mine so I believe it. Every one is different though too remember.   :)
I'm due Nov 1st...that happened to me too with the news letter but its ok now. I'm havin a little girl, and she is already facing downward. So I guess you are right AAWM....I am very nervous but I was told not to be. But who wouldn't, helllloooo I'm only 5 months and 2 weeks :-/
