the midwives will always advise against broadcasting your due date far and wide. just say, we are expecting the baby in January. two weeks before or after the official date is well within the range of normal.
thus it is good and right that we should be celebrating the Annunciation on April 8th this year instead of the customary March 25th. if, like me in a postpartum haze, you completely forgot the feast this year, on Monday you get a do-over.
Karen Edmisten has a lovely set of links about the church year and celebrating this miraculous feast.
