Khloe Kardashian's due date is fast approaching!
The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star is expecting her first child, a baby girl, with boyfriend and Cleveland Cavaliers player Tristan Thompson.
"Khloe is counting down the days and trying to relax and rest as much as she can," a source told E! News. "She is excited and nervous at the same time."
"I can't wait to meet my baby girl!" Khloe wrote on her app on March 20. "I often think about what she'll look like and what her little personality will be like. She'll be the perfect mix of me and Tristan—which is such a crazy thought, LOL."
Khloe plans to give birth in Cleveland, where she spends much of her time, "because she knows she has more privacy there," the source said, adding, "She is left alone and there is less media attention and paparazzi. She is very comfortable and happy in Cleveland and knows that overall it will be best for her, Tristan and their daughter to spend their first few weeks there. Tristan's game schedule also factored into their decision and Cleveland made more sense logistically."
"It was a mad rush to get everything to Cleveland and ready," a second source said. "She has her assistant there helping get the nursery ready and all the last-minute details like diapers put away and all the gear working."

A third insider told E! News previously that while Khloe is "feeling great" and is "very excited," she's "also a bit nervous about how the delivery is going to go and all of the unknowns."
"Tristan is very reassuring and helps calm her nerves and makes her feel better," the source continued. "He is extremely positive and nurturing and she loves that she can go through this experience with someone so wonderful."
Khloe and Tristan will have nurseries in both of their Los Angeles and Cleveland homes, according to the source, who added, "They are getting both ready and figuring out everything they need. Khloe has been shopping for baby gear and putting together details for her baby shower."
Khloe has been getting advice on baby products from her sisters and her mom, Kris Jenner, is "helping her figure it all out."
"It's starting to become very real and she's so excited," the insider said. "Khloe is trying to enjoy her pregnancy and taking one day at a time. She's looking forward to finally seeing the baby and being able to hold the baby. She is hoping for a smooth delivery and a healthy baby above all."
"Being pregnant has always been a dream of mine," she wrote on her app. "Even though 9 months feels like a lifetime while I'm awaiting the arrival of my baby girl, it's really a blink in the grand scheme of life. I know I'm going to miss my belly so much once she's here, I had to capture the beautiful process that is pregnancy so I can always look back at this time."

"I have always heard that women are extra horny when they're pregnant, but for me it's been interesting," she wrote. "In the beginning, sex was the same. As I got into my third trimester and started to get bigger, it became harder to have sex and a little more uncomfortable and limiting." But she told her fans that Tristan has been "amazing" and "would never make me feel different in any way."
"I'm sure it's uncomfortable for a man to have sex with a pregnant woman too," Khloe shared. "Personally, I get uncomfortable and insecure. Also, you can't move the same, so you kind of feel useless, LOL. But you just have to improvise and do the best you can."
