In brief: A few months..

Unfortunately this is a common concern and usually is the result of additional swelling and fluid in a pregnant body.
This causes many different nerve compressions, potentially, including carpal tunnel syndrome. Sometimes sleeping on an extra pillow will help....Take solice in the fact that most times it will resolve after delivery.
