    It is a reference to an old rhyme for children. The real title is "Monday's Child’ but most know it as "Friday's child". It is one of many fortune-telling songs. I remember my grandmother telling it to me. As with all nursery rhymes, there are many versions. This is the most common today:

    Monday's child is fair of face,

    Tuesday's child is full of grace,

    Wednesday's child is full of woe,

    Thursday's child has far to go,

    Friday's child is loving and giving,

    Saturday's child works hard for a living,

    But the child who is born on the Sabbath Day

    Is bonny and blithe and good and gay

    The origin of fortune-telling rhymes goes back to the 16th century. Like today's horoscopes, they were supposed to tell the character of a child according to the day of his or her birth.

    to calculate due date . start at first day of last period. subtract 3 months then add 7 days. if you ovulate regulary than it is possible around 15 wks or possibly 16 or 17 weeks. . Its hard to determine unless you keep up with ovulation. When you given a due date. U could go into labor 2 weeks before to 2 weeks after or inbetween. It leaves that 2 week window.

    Yes, usually when they refer to how many weeks, it is weeks since LMP, not since conception, and conception would be roughly 2 weeks after your LMP, so you are correct. But remember, it's just an estimate!
