I would say that is pretty accurate, it can be anywhere from 24-31 days. That's how long mine were usually pregnant for.

I go by every 30 days, so once a month a female will give birth. I've found the higher the temperature in your tank, the faster the fry develope inside and therefor the shorter the gestation period.
