If the mom is 'golf ball' shaped, get him out asap. She could get bigger or she could have a small litter. She could go any time.
Give the mother shredded toilet paper pieces so she can make a nice big fluffy nest. That's a good indication of her getting close, too - she'll begin to amass a large nest.
Take something like a cottage cheese or sour cream container and cut a hole in the side, leaving a lip. She will feel much safer if she's able to curl up in some secluded little area with her babies. I usually make the top of the container the bottom, and leave the lid on so they don't tip it over.
