There is no way to tell really exactly how many joeys she will have in a year's time. It depends on whether or not she has a single/twin in pouch;how many actually survive.
Is there any particular reason you are allowing her to reproduce this close together? She needs some time off.
The more often she breeds the shorter her life span will be. She also needs to build her strength back up to ensure healthy joeys.
