New kitty-mama in the house

Got a call yesterday from Juli at the Humane Society. She had a new pregnant kitty needing fostering. So off I went to pick her up. She is a beautiful brown tabby with a 3/4 tail with a nearly 360 degree curl in the end. But one look into her gorgeous green eyes, and I knew her name - Peridot.
I got her home, and put her into the office/kitten room. She immediately scooted under my cabinet. I went in and out a couple of times, and talked to her each time. This morning, she greeted me with a "Mrrow" and attempted to venture out. Her belly made it hard for her to get out from under the cabinet, so I assisted. Since then, she seems to be happy to come out and cuddle whenever I'm in there. She likes my desk chair.

The vet says she's about 3 years old, and that this is likely not her first litter. She is likely going to deliver within the week, and the vet estimates 3-5 kittens.

She has fabulous markings - very distinct. You can see the kinked tail in the second pic. The third picture gives you a sense of her belly bulge.
