Question Help....need to know quickly please

Morning Hedgie parents. My little girl is expecting, 1st due date is tomorrow, 11/23. I made her a nesting box that she has been happily sleeping in for a couple of weeks. She has had nesting materials in her cage for a week now.
Her nesting box has a floor. I noticed last night that, it appears, she made her nest.....just not in her box, but in the middle of her cage. I will leave it all alone, if you all feel I should.
QUESTION: Should I remove the floor from her box and put it over her nest?
Or......just leave it as it is. Here cage is 24" x 36". The nest is right in the middle, with no shelter......Thank you so much...MAMA IN PANIC MODE��

She put the nest there knowing that there's no cover. I'd say leave it. Mama put it where she wanted it. I'd also leave the floor because when making the nest, she probably expecting the floor to be there and everything.

Leave the nest where ever she makes it. She may decide to move it or she may leave it where it is.
