Why, when I convert a word document, does the pagination in the footer change to one less page?

I currently am trying to convert a 17 page word document using PDF Creator. The document converts fine; however, when I view the resulting pdf, the page numbers in the footer are off by 1 - i.e. footer changes to 16 pages total - last page indicates page 17 of 16. What am I missing?
