Depends: It depends on what signs you're speaking about. The first sign a woman might be pregnant is that she misses her period. A sign that comes later on is nausea or breast tenderness. Fatigue and increased need for sleep are often following. A missed period happens at around 4 to 5 weeks after the beginning of the last menstrual period. The other symptoms occur 1 to 2 weeks later.

12-16 weeks: First-time mom's usually start to show between 12 and 16 weeks. Pregnancies start to show sooner with subsequent pregnancies. With baggy clothing its possible to hide a pregnancy to 24 weeks or longer. Best wishes!

Days to months: It really depends on the person..Some have significant morning sickness and others not.... All will have no periods or just very light in first month or two....But this is not reliable as many women have irregular periods and some have skipped-periods on a regular basis. So, if you are regular, now you are not..Check for pregnancy..Pay attention to your body..It will tell you check with your doc.
