I would look at the bivariate correlations and see wether the bivariate relationship between the I.V's and dependent hold in the model.

If it stands that the signs are reversed moving from bivariate to multivariate then these are reversals, and a typical explanation for this would be multicollinearity. That you can check with a VIF option in PROC REG's ,model statement.
