Both sentences are OK. One could argue that "yet" is not needed.
Interested in Language
She can drink alcohol as long as she does not show any signs of pregnancy yet.
She can drink alcohol as long as she does not yet show any signs of pregancy.
In my opinion both sound a little off... Which one sounds better, or should I opt for a completely different solution?
I agree that both are natural and grammatically correct, but my daughter the obstetrician advises me that both are wrong in fact. Just in case the OP was in any doubt about that.

Thank you both.
The actual sentence was a little different and quite long, so I changed it to something shorter with a different meaning. But in hindsight I agree that I could have chosen a better one.
I agree with Probus. Even though fetal alcohol syndrome can occur at any point in pregnancy, the effects are more severe toward the end of the first trimester, before signs of pregnancy show.
