Kate Middleton, Duchess Catherine


Kate Middleton's countdown to baby continues. 

And while her preparations include stroller shopping and maintaining an ultra-chic maternity wardrobe, the Duchess of Cambridge's plans for the royal baby's arrival does not include moving back in with her mother after giving birth, contrary to reports.

But sources say Kate will be spending more time with her family once the child is born.

"There are no formal plans for her to move in with her mum in Bucklebury," a source tells E! News. "But after Will's paternity leave—currently expected to be two weeks—Kate will spend most of her time between London and Bucklebury."

As far as which hospital Middleton will choose to deliver at, the Palace says they will announce it in "due course."

And before you buy a cute blue gift to send to the royal parents-to-be—you might wanna hold off. Although rumors began swirling that Will and Kate are expecting a boy after purchasing a blue stroller, E! News learns that may not be the case.

A source tells E! News that the particular color the couple chose for their stroller is actually more of a lilac than a blue, and that people also buy it if they are expecting a girl, or choose not to learn the sex of the baby. 

So the guessing game continues.
