You know the guides you can have a look at on the internet in relation to the development of the baby. Well my query is, do you go by how many weeks your gone by your due date or by the fetus's real gestational age which would be 2 weeks less, if you know what i mean. sorry that probably is confusing

I would be inclined to go by the gestational stage. What does everyone else think?

I wouldn't go by the gestational age, I'd use your due date. If you look at the majority of those week-by-week thingy's, they have 40 weeks on them, where weeks 1 and 2 are before conception. Hope that makes sense... *)
