Yes, the 2nd bath fixes 40 sheets as 2nd bath and afterwards 40 sheets as 1st bath before it gets discarded. However, measuring silver content is better than counting sheets, and if you count sheets, don't forget to count test strips too.

A little hint:
Don't discard your old fixer after a printing session. Discard it in the middle of the session, after test strips and work prints are done. This way you get fresh fixer for the final prints.
