confusing due dates

I am a bit confused as to when my actual due date is, My first day of last menstruation were 10 April 2008. So according to me my due date is 15 Jan 2009 and I am in my 39th week, but my gynae thinks I am 37 weeks and my due date is 18 Jan. How does he calculate this?

You have calculated incorrectly. From the 10th April, you add 7 days and subtract 3 months. This is what your doctor has done. If your due date is 15-18 Jan, you would be 38+ weeks.
