Hopefully, she will lay all the eggs w/in 24 hours of starting. Its a lot of work for her.
If not, chances are that the rest of them will become egg-bound.
If this happens-if in 3 days she has not laid all of them, I'd take her to the vet to have them aspirated-sucked out thru a needle. Everytime this has happened in my knowledge, the eggs wee duds anyway.
Give her extreme darkness and quiet in her hide box alone.
Check on her tomorrow at this time, then place the eggs in the incubator. Make sure she has enough heat, though. If the heat lamp is your only heat source, put her near the heater in your house or if it's warm inside, put it on a top shelf (possibly a closet) near the ceiling until she's done.
BTW-where did you hear of the incubator set-up?
