Pregnancy is a game mechanic and multiple-day event that begins after a successful " Try for Baby " interaction between two Sims of the opposite sex, and ends with the pregnant female Sim giving birth to one or more newborn babies. Pregnancy brings many physical and lifestyle changes to the pregnant Sim, including increasing body size, faster-decreasing motives , and forced maternity leave from work. Pregnancy was introduced as a game feature in The Sims 2 , and has appeared in each subsequent game. Prior to The Sims 2 , kissing or playing in bed [ TS:LL ] were the only interactions that could result in two Sims having a child - and the player could usually say yes or no to that. If the player said "yes", or was not given that option, a baby would immediately appear, forgoing any pregnancy period. Under normal circumstances, only female Sims can become pregnant. However, in The Sims 2 and in The Sims 4: Get to Work , male Sims can be impregnated as well, either through alien abduction or by the use of cheats. In The Sims 3: Seasons , male Sims can experience a sort of pseudo-pregnancy as the result of alien abduction. In The Sims 4 , as of patch 34 , a Sim's ability to get pregnant or get others pregnant can be set with the optional Customize Gender menu in CAS, regardless of the Sim's gender. Pregnant Sims count as two Sims when it comes to household sizes. As such, it is impossible to move a pregnant Sim into a household of seven unless another Sim is moved out or becomes pregnant in a full household. To get a Sim pregnant, the two partners must " Try for Baby ". When trying for a baby, there is a possibility that the Sim will not get pregnant, but if she does, the player will hear a lullaby song or jingle; signaling a successful conception. In The Sims 2 , only adults and elder males can initiate Try for Baby , although the InTeenimater mod can allow teens to become pregnant. While young adult males can father children with adult females, the "Try for Baby" interaction must be initiated by the adult female at her home. If the Sim is infertile , the player can testingcheatsenabled and spawn the Tombstone of Life and Death to impregnate a Sim. The number of babies born is determined at conception, but the gender is determined at birth. In The Sims 3 and The Sims 4 prior to Patch 34 , young adults, adults, and male elders can try for a baby, but only female young adults and adults can get pregnant. Young adults that are pregnant and about to become adults will not age up until the baby is born. Sims can be set so that they are able to become pregnant or to make another Sim pregnant, regardless of gender. Some things that the player does or exposes the pregnant Sim to during pregnancy can affect either the gender or number of offspring the pregnancy will produce. In The Sims 2: Bon Voyage , if a pregnant Sim goes on vacation before starting to show or becomes pregnant while on vacation, the pregnancy will be suspended until after they return home. The Sim may, however, experience morning sickness when on the rental or hotel lot, especially on a longer vacation. In The Sims 3: World Adventures , it is possible for a Sim to have WooHoo with someone from the place they are visiting on their holidays. If a male Sim were to WooHoo with a female Sim who lives in his holiday destination i. China, France or Egypt , it is possible for the female Sim to get pregnant. But when the male Sim returns home, his offspring can be seen on the family tree as a child, even if the WooHoo occurred the previous day. This jump in age occurs due to the fact that pregnant females, babies, and toddlers are not present in foreign destinations. In addition, story progression is at a catch-up rate , meaning the offspring will not immediately show any age progressions through the family tree. Meanwhile, a female Sim who does the same will return home and give birth to the child, and the family tree will show who the father is; the baby will grow up in a normal pace. A pregnant Sim cannot travel to the future. In The Sims 4: Jungle Adventure , Sims have the option to try for a baby with Selvadoradian locals, provided they have a high enough relationship. If a local is impregnated, they will give birth normally and the related household will be notified. However, like all other townie births, babies will immediately age up into toddlers as they have no home for a bassinet to be placed in. If someone in a playable household is impregnated by a Selvadoradian, they cannot give birth while on vacation, but their pregnancy will progress normally after they return home. In The Sims 2 , when an adult male stargazes with the Farstar e3 telescope at night, there is a chance that he will be abducted by aliens. If he is, he will return after a few Sim hours, and will soon learn that he is pregnant. Female Sims and male Sims of different ages can be abducted, but only adult males will become pregnant as a result of an abduction. The Nightlife patch fixed a glitch which allowed young adult males abducted from the ElectroDance Sphere to return pregnant. If FreeTime or later is installed, Knowledge Sims with the Summon Aliens aspiration benefit can use either telescope to attempt to summon aliens; so an adult male Sim with that benefit can use it to attempt to become pregnant.
