Guppies should give birth in a couple of weeks. So keep your eye on the spot known as the "gravid" spot. It should darken and your guppies belly should swell, looking as if it had a really big dinner.
If you want to keep your babies you should buy a breeder tank and if not make sure there is enough coverage for the fry to hide, so they dont get eaten.

3-4 weeks.
When the spot becomes completely black it should only be a another week or so before she pops.
I currently have a guppy right now who is pregos as well...this will be her fourth time.
