Get her spay/aborted and don't worry about it.
   
Do you have any idea how many kittens and cats are euthanized in the US in shelters due to overpopulation.
   
I do. 6 million annually.
   
Because people allow their unfixed cats to add to the surplus of unwanted litters.
   
Your kittens of course will all get "good homes." Displacing other cats from homes (not enough homes, too many cats) that will be euthanized. And of course, many of your "good homes" will procrastinate on getting their new kittens fixed as you have done, adding even more litters to the pool.
   
Get her fixed ASAP. Cats can be spay/aborted at any point in their term. At a few weeks old they are tadpoles. Please get her fixed before she gets any farther along. There is another ALREADY-BORN litter out there counting on you . . .

If your cat is truly pregnant, than their body goes out of heat. Although, if a cat has not successfully mated, it can repeatedly go into heat.
   
Is there a specific sign that she is exhibiting that would have you think she is in heat??
   
Remember that a feline pregnancy only last any where from 58-65 days, so usually by the 3rd week in pregnancy you can have that confirmed by a veterinarian if you are worried.
   
As far as signs of labor, usually a cat will not be as interested in food a day or two before birthing her kittens. If she does start birthing her kittens, the longest between each kitten being birthed should be no more that ~30-40 minutes. If things are not progressing in a timely matter, a veterinarian can administer a shot to help the remaining kittens get out safely.
   
Good Luck
