How many weeks does pregnancy last

I know it sounds crazy but how many weeks is one pregnant.I know that 9 months is 36 weeks but i hear of people being pregnant for 38 weeks or something other than 36 weeks.How is the due date calculated and how accurate is it.
Thanks.

The duration of pregnany is 40 weeks. The due date is calculated from the first day of your last period. 90% of babies will deliver within a week of the due date.
