Can you kill a pregnant Sim?![edit source]

In the Sims 3, I've tried for hours to kill my pregnant Sim, and apparently it cannot be done. At the beginning of her second trimester, she went swimming, and then I built walls around the whole pool. She got fatigued from the swimming, then got the drowning moodlet, and then got exhausted from no energy. But she never drowned! During the course of the 3 days of "drowning", she went into labor, and she still didn't drown. That's b***s***. Did they really care that much about not aborting pregnancy in any way? 07:36, June 13, 2010 (UTC)

Please do not use vulgar words on this Wiki. I've edited your comment to block out the full words. LostInRiverview 07:47, June 13, 2010 (UTC)

Hey guys, I was watching youtube and one person said they have a link to download(For free) the ability to get a teen pregnant. Is that possible? --Limemabean 01:53, 18 May 2009 (UTC)

-With the cheat, yes. I would nit recommend doing this, though, because the game codes were not meant for teenage pregnancy, it might crash your game!--Bella Goth 01:57, 18 May 2009 (UTC)Bella Goth

I have a Sim in The Sims 3 who got pregnant at 2 days until elderhood. It's now 6:20 am, the entire day before she was 0 days until aging... Nothing happened. Aging's on. Earlier, I tried to make her blow out the candles on the cake as a test, and she could not. They changed the system; your sim CAN get pregnant just before she becomes an elder, but she won't age into an elder until the pregnancy is over. More information coming on how she ages after giving birth. When I posted this information in a forum, I found that someone else had the same experience as well. -- 04:18, 9 June 2009 (UTC)

CAN YOU HAVE A BABY WHILE ON VACATION!?!??!?!?!?!??!?!!!!!!![edit source]

I found this placed on the main pregnacy page, by anonymous user I thought their question should be answered.--Limemabean 02:39, 25 June 2009 (UTC)

Unfortannly, No.
I have tried that as well and i ended up at home with a pregnant mother. Ha ha. Of course i had to pay the full price hotel bill! Anyway, I had a baby at home which is now a teen and my baby which i got at the hotel (ha) is only a few days till a teen as well. I also have twin toddlers who her learning greatly and have one day till they turn into kids! I might have another baby when my first kid turns into a adult and gets married to his girlfriend. :) ~`Tara~`—Preceding unsigned comment added by (talkcontribs) (UTC) - Please sign your comments with ~~~~

Where is it?[edit source]

I read that with the tombstone of L and D, you can choose that the pregnancy will last only 3 sims hours. But I can't find it. Where is the choice?—Preceding unsigned comment added by Ellie Dreams (talkcontribs) (UTC) - Please sign your comments with ~~~~

Living Together[edit source]

In The Sims 3, it is possible for Sims not living together to have a baby. I tried it with my Rockstar and his boss and to my surprise, it worked. The baby lives with the mother and if you don't have them move in, it does make it hard to build a relationship with the chid (you will lose points if the mother is married to someone else and you try to flirt with her, the child only visits occasionally with the mother).—Preceding unsigned comment added by Devlin Dewe (talkcontribs) (UTC) - Please sign your comments with ~~~~

Baby Gender[edit source]

My Sim just gave birth to a baby. I wanted a boy, so I ate four apples in her second trimester but she got a girl anyway. Is this possible? Since, according to the Wiki page, there is only a 1% chance of having a girl if you eat three apples I think it's probably more likely something else happened. Deftera 21:30, June 28, 2010 (UTC)

The same thing happened to me. My mother ate three apples, one during each trimester like I always do and she had twin girls. So now I have my mothers eat 9 apples, 3 during each trimester.--Bella Goth 01:13, July 6, 2010 (UTC)Bella Goth

Influencing baby gender (Sims 2)[edit source]

I had a Sim who had a daughter as her first child without any tampering done by me. During her second pregnancy, she pretty much ate only gelatin for every meal (and several times per meal, as it is not very filling) yet she had a baby boy. After that, she had two more girls in a row "naturally". Considering it is reported on the page that eating gelatin might increase the chances for a baby girl, I found it strange. Perhaps I will test it more since the crazy Sim woman wants to have 10 children anyway. SmellyCats 09:43, March 20, 2011 (UTC)

By now, I figure the gelatin must work for pregnancies started after having eaten it, since the aforementioned Sim has had 4 daughters since then. SmellyCats 18:06, March 23, 2011 (UTC)

Super duper pregnancy glitch.[edit source]

Okay so I did this glitch before a long while back I don't know how I did it but it won't happen again and sadly I have no proof of this and I'm pissed off cause now nobody believes me. Anyways one day My family A man a woman and their child. The Wife was pregnant and it was the child's birthday and they had a birthday cake, the man had a sculpted body and was an athlete so I didn't want to ruin his physique same with the daughter, she was an athlete and I didn't want to ruin either of them. But the wife on the other hand was a couch potato and was already chunky so I decided I'm not going to let this cake go to waste so I had her eat the entire cake. The Next day she had her baby, but then she had twins, triplets, quadruplets, quintuplets, sextuplets and it kept going on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on, heck after 6 babies were born it kept making the sim on top unselectable and it was crazy and I am dead serious about all this my sim had a never ending supply of babies and I mean it never ended and I couldn't do anything but watch my sim push out baby after baby after baby shouldn't she have just died or something cause I counted like at least 30 babies before I got bored. So I paused the game and saved it for kicks and to see what would happen if I restarted then after I restarted I wanted to get some evidence of this happening but when I tried to restart it it corrupted the game, not just the file the WHOLE GAME! So I had to reinstall the game and I have no evidence and I haven't tried it again because I didn't feel like it and besides a patch came out the next day so I think this could've been fixed. Now I am dead f'ing serious about this glitch here, I may lie alot but THIS is not something I would lie about because this really happened, has anyone else heard of this happening or experienced it themselves? --Numad 00:37, July 18, 2010 (UTC)

I believe you, but nothing like that's happened to me. It sounds like a corrupt mod. If a mod isn't up to date with your game, it can cause serious problems like that, so it pays to check back.  If you don't use mods, or they're all up to date, it sounds similar to a problem I had with a dog who kept breeding. If that ever happens again, you've gotta stop and try to delete the babies as fast as they come. And in the future, saving in that situation isn't reccommendable. The Raven Nevermore 03:42, April 5, 2014 (UTC)Slade81
okay I have a differ pregnancy problem 3 sims days ago it said the baby is come and now its 3 days later and she still has not had her baby it wont let me take her to the hospital and she cant do anything but walk around has this happened to any of you guys if it has what did you do and if it has not do have any ideas im DESPRITE ( I know im a horrible speller and there its no punctuation ) ps my sim is a celebertie Im not shure if that could have anything to do with it—Preceding unsigned comment added by (talkcontribs) 18:52, January 14, 2015 (UTC) - Please sign your comments with ~~~~

I saw this...[edit source]

Okay, I'm a user here, but too lazy to log in, but I have a '?'. So, I was watching a video on the Sims 3 website. The user on there post a cheatless-cheat. It may sound weird but listen, she said if your sim is preggos, go to a level 10 sim in the medical career (Sims 3 only, guys!) and have him-her examine your preggo sim. He-she will say that you will have a girl or boy. Taking the watermelon/apple thing into mind, eat the fruit of the opposite gender the doctor talked about and you will get (hopefully)...a boy and girl twin pair!! Keep in mind that you have to be inforcing twins!! -- 20:51, July 18, 2010 (UTC)

Link to video please?♥Icyyy♥ 00:54, July 19, 2010 (UTC)
I tried this and my result was...the doctor(I went to Nick Knack of Twinbrook) said I was having a girl so I ate 3 apples when she was on the trimesters and she just had a girl(which I named Goldie)♥Icyyy♥ 02:51, July 19, 2010 (UTC)
Also, you have to watch kids TV and/or listen to kids music! I did that and I got boy/girl twins (Kent and Kayla) XxSimsAddictxx 01:42, July 31, 2010 (UTC)

Miscarriages[edit source]

On the Wiki page, it says The Sims 2 game dosen't have regular miscarriages, but with the seasons expansion pack, people can have miscarriages during the first and second trimesters. The game does a sequence as if the pregnant person is going through labor, but they're actually losing the baby(ies). I know this isn't a glitch because i bought the Seasons book and it's in there too. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Desperaterox22 (talkcontribs) 15:24, January 31, 2011 (UTC) - Please sign your comments with ~~~~

After they do their pushing they have nauseathen a pacifier with a red X goes through their thoughts.

If "The Seasons book" is the Prima guide, please say where you found this. I have it as well, and have never seen any mention of miscarriage in it. Also, I have never seen any reference to Sims having miscarriages, much less having memories of them, unless mods are used. In other words, I'm dubious. Dharden (talk) 16:18, January 31, 2011 (UTC)
Okay, I'm confused. How can you have miscarriages? Is it a cheat, natural, or a glitch? --Unnamed—Preceding unsigned comment added by (talkcontribs) (UTC) - Please sign your comments with ~~~~
It must be natural, I have the Sims 2 Seasons but it hasn't happened to me yet. But it's probably quite rare, you just need to keep your pregnant sim happy. When I say that I mean make sure she doesn't starve, and make sure she isn't too hot or cold, what probably triggers it (but I'm not completely sure.) (talk) 12:11, October 29, 2014 (UTC)Anonymous
I'm 100% sure it's a caused by a mod like InTeenimater. Nikel Talk Vote! 13:01, October 30, 2014 (UTC)

Baby with locals on vacation[edit source]

My sim had a baby with one of the locals but since then the family moved out of the the house and i can't find them!! My sim just wants to make things right and take his kids back home to raise them... He doesn't know them and they don't walk around town. Thank god for some reason he was able to meet one of them (i dont know how) and he was able to built up enough relationship with him and move him in. Does anyone know how to find lost sims?~?!? 18:12, March 8, 2011 (UTC)

Aww... that's so sad. Sorry that your Sim is having a hard time trying to be a good father. :( I know there is some cheat to move anyone into a family, but I don't use it so that's all I know. --Preceding comment by SmellyCats 21:45, March 11, 2011 (UTC). Sign your comments with four ~'s.

It may be easier to see all of the families in a certain area if you go into the edit neighborhood screen for that vacation destination (or whatever it's called in TS3, sorry). Click on all of the families in the houses one by one until you find the one with your children. Then, have your Sim visit that house on his next vacation. Eupheschism 08:21, April 18, 2011 (UTC)

I don't know how this cheat works exactly, but I know that it adds a local to your family. Press ctrl + shift + c all at once on your game and a little bar will come up at the top of the screen (if you know this just skip.) Then type in 'boolprop testingcheatsenabled true' and shift+click on your sim. Find 'Spawn...' and press the Tombstone of L and D (it'll be on the bottom left when you find it.) Press on the tombstone and click on 'Add Family Member' hopefully your person will be there. It will only show the first name, not the second. Don't get your hopes up, because it might not show them.

This page in a nutshell[edit source]

The purpose of a nutshell is to summarize what the page describes, If I'm not mistaken. The phrase "Gameplay in The Sims 2 and The Sims 3" doesn't really fit this purpose, does it? So, we could either remove the nutshell parthenon, or improve it. I personally believe it should be removed as no other article, uses it. A trip to hell is an exciting experience, isn't it?

More than quadruplets[edit source]

(I was playing The Sims 3) I was playing with my pregnant sim once, and she had either nine or ten babies (I can't remember)! They were all girls. Was it a glitch? I was using testingcheatsenabled true at the time, could that have triggered it? Bakerychaz (talk page) File:Flag New Zealand.svg 12:12, July 4, 2012 (UTC)

Are you sure?? Are you using any hacks or mods that increase the number of birth? Nikel Talk Vote! 12:17, July 4, 2012 (UTC)
No, I'm not. I don't use hacks or mods, just cheats. Bakerychaz (talk page) File:Flag New Zealand.svg 12:38, July 4, 2012 (UTC)
Geez, I couldn't say much about this. :s Nikel Talk Vote! 12:42, July 4, 2012 (UTC)

I have had only three boys so far and the rest are all girls (twins, triplets). Why is this the problem? So far my sim has had 10 babies, and she will be expecting another one.

Also, she has not been pregnant yet and I have tried aging her up. It does not work. Why is this the case? Thanks! (talk) 01:08, August 17, 2012 (UTC)

CAS Twins?[edit source]

(TS3) In CAS, there's a create a twin button. Does this make the sim more likely to give birth to twins, like in-game twins are? Or is the CAS twin just a look-a-like?

GothLoliManda (talk) 18:51, August 27, 2012 (UTC)

It's just a lookalike. However I've made twins & I don't know if it makes it more likely, but I doubt it. Of course you obviously could still get twins, especially if you have the LR "fertility treatment" and you listen to kids music and watch kids TV a lot, especially if it's the same time :) 16:26, February 3, 2013 (UTC)—Preceding unsigned comment added by XXxCrazyThingXxX (talkcontribs) (UTC) - Please sign your comments with ~~~~

Yup, the CAS "create a twin" are only twins if you put them as siblings. They could as easily be clones, stepsiblings, identical robots, an aunt and niece, two witches that used magic to look the same, and other things. Kaiko Mikkusu (talk) 20:10, August 8, 2014 (UTC)

Maternity clothes[edit source]

Is there a hack in SimPE that can allow you to make Sims wear maternity clothes as their everyday outfit, so that it appears in their thumbnail? ― C.Syde (talk | contribs) 06:39, December 27, 2013 (UTC)

I GOT TRIPLETS!!!!!!!![edit source]

Once I was playing a Sim female who got pregnant, then I decided to get more Lifetime Happiness Points so I could have twins. I made her eat 3 watermelons everyday, and eventually I bought the Fertility Treatment Lifetime Reward. I made her read pregnancy books and do kids' stuff, because I read that doing these interactions will increase the chance of twins. 

I made her move house (she doesn't live with Dad) so she had room for children. I bought 1 of everything, because I never, never, ever got twins. She adopted a cat, who went to sleep. My pregnant Sim went upstairs to sleep. After a few Sim hours, she got up and went downstairs...then went into LABOR!!!!! I was expecting 1 child, or even twins...but...I was AMAZED!!!! Not 1, not 2, but 3! I couldn't believe it. How could I usually have one sim born, then suddenly get triplets when twins were what I wanted? 

2 of the girls had blonde hair, while the 3rd had brown hair. I used cheats to change their looks, then they all automatically started playing and singing with their Imaginary Friends that my Sim had took out of the mailbox after giving birth. I had used cheats to age them into toddlers, and made the Toddler stage longer because I had to make them learn their skills. I called them Sara, Patricia and Gladys.—Preceding unsigned comment added by (talkcontribs) 11:00 02 April 2014 (UTC) - Please sign your comments with ~~~~

Fashionably Pregnant[edit source]

Alright, So all this is about me being very picky and disliking the already selected clothes for pregnant sims. I was wondering that if you dress your sim in the clothes that are okay for the "pregnant wardrobe" (as I call it), will it change the clothes or leave them the same?

Why isn't my sim pregnant?[edit source]

So I got my sim pregnant about 2 sims days ago after she and her husband got married. She hasn't shown any throwing up or sickness, but her energy etc needs are going down quicker. The game won't let me try for a baby again, it only gives the option woohoo. I tried the Tombstone of L and D to speed up the pregnancy and see if that worked, but there wasn't the option. Was it delayed because my sim had to go to work? She works from 9 a.m to 5 p.m. (talk) 20:30, October 28, 2014 (UTC)Anonymous91.84.60.220 (talk) 20:30, October 28, 2014 (UTC) October 28th 2014 (it's Sims 2 btw.)

Does your current household contain 8 Sims? Ѧüя◎ґ (talk) 21:43, October 28, 2014 (UTC)
No, it's just the two of them. I played the family again and I adopted instead, a baby girl (forgot her name already.) Then and JUST then did the mother start to have morning sickness. But it went on for days and she never got her baby bump. When I gave up and thought 'I'll come back to it later...' I made a new family, again it was just the two parents. The exact same thing happened to this family too. I haven't got mods or custom content installed, so I can uninstall my games easily if this is a glitch. Mind I ask if you uninstall the Sims 2, do you need to uninstall all the others too? (If you're going to re-install them.) (talk) 00:05, October 29, 2014 (UTC)Anonymous
An uninstall is completely unnecessary here, because it's an issue with the Sim or neighborhood itself, not with the core game files. Try and download the Sim Manipulator (read this page if you need help with installing custom content), buy it in buy mode and place it somewhere on the lot, then click on it. Find the menu that says "Pregnancy" (you may have to click on "More..." for it to appear!). You should be able to look at the pregnancy stats, if your Sim is actually pregnant. If they are pregnant but their pregnancy seems to be broken, you can abort the pregnancy. --I am k6ka Talk to me! See what I have done 00:18, October 29, 2014 (UTC)
Thank you! I'll try it. I'm terrible at downloading things for the Sims 2 especially, but I'll get my brother to do it or something (now he's a real computerwhiz!) Here's some info if it helps; The first family both came out of college when they finished, and I waited a few days. The new sims were completely fresh, without college or stuff like that. It might be the neighbourhood, because I made the neighbourhood myself (it was based off of Bluewater Village, and I installed Open for Business not long after.) (talk) 00:31, October 29, 2014 (UTC)Anonymous
Have you done any of the no-nos at Game guide:Avoiding corruption? Glitches like these might occur if your neighborhood is corrupted. --I am k6ka Talk to me! See what I have done 00:34, October 29, 2014 (UTC)
Actually, I did do; 'Move a previously occupied/owned lot to the lot bin: And put it in a different neighbourhood'. But the house was lived in by the same people who are in it now. It came from Sims State University, and I did put it down again in my made village, where I put the second family in. That makes alot of sense. The sim manipulator looks cool so I'm downloading it anyway. Thank you so-so much for helping me! I'm sorry if I wasted your time somehow. Should I try and move the exsisting family to a different lot (which hasn't been tempered with) and see how it goes? (talk) 00:47, October 29, 2014 (UTC)Anonymous
That might be it. Both the neighborhood that you moved the lot out of and the neighborhood that you moved the lot into are corrupted, so glitches like these are to be expected. The only solution now to fix the corruption is to delete both neighborhoods. --I am k6ka Talk to me! See what I have done 01:02, October 29, 2014 (UTC)
So I'll delete both the town i made and it's pre-made university? And I'm sorry to bother you by asking more questions, but after you download the Sim Manipulator, where do you find it? Do you buy it or is like a Career award? (talk) 01:11, October 29, 2014 (UTC)Anonymous 
Once you delete the main neighborhood, any attached sub-neighborhoods (like the university/college) will automatically be deleted along with it. And the Sim Manipulator can be found in buy mode, in the "Decorations -> Sculptures" section, I think. --I am k6ka Talk to me! See what I have done 02:19, October 29, 2014 (UTC)
Thank you so much! This helped me alot. I re-made the family and moved them into a different neighbourhood (after I deleted the other one.) She finally got pregnant with her second child, a boy, named Rin. Have a great week! (talk) 11:59, October 29, 2014 (UTC)Anonymous

Cheesecake and twins[edit source]

Cheesecake is very well-known for its ability to magically cause pregnant Sims to give birth to twins, as if using the forceTwins cheat. Just recently someone stated that it was a myth, with a reference link. In the link, Pescado insisted that the cheesecake is not magic or anything, and it causes nothing to the result of twins. Further down the thread, he said that the code exists in the cheesecake but it's broken. There's also this thread, but Pescado kept insisting that the cheesecake does nothing. Everybody else begged to differ and kept proving otherwise.

With the aforementioned "broken code," Twojeffs made a fix. But the fix note states that the Prima Guide lied that the cheesecake heightened the chance of twins, while in fact, it's 100% (not just heightened). It's pretty much a lot of contradictions to Pescado's statements. The fix itself is not really a fix, but a tweak to lower the chance after eating cheesecake.

Now, modders might still be wrong, even if it's Pescado, and even then, his statements were always biased and unclear. There have been multiple instances where people prove that the cheesecake is not a myth, and I myself am very certain that it's not a myth. I'm inclined to claim the statement false, but unless someone can really prove it wrong, please discuss here. Nikel Talk Vote! 10:52, November 14, 2014 (UTC)

The best course of action would be to take to both sides. We could state that "While some believe it's a myth, others have proven that consuming cheesecake will give the pregnant Sim twins." Same with reputation, I'm guessing, since people have reported that you can gain reputation on residential lots, but others have also reported that this is not possible. Neither of these groups have mods that altered this behavior.[1] We can't afford to be biased in this manner, so it would be better to take both sides instead of just one. --I am k6ka Talk to me! See what I have done 14:11, November 14, 2014 (UTC)
Hmm... These finds are completely biased. I'm certain there must be a definite answer to this. :/ Nikel Talk Vote! 07:24, November 16, 2014 (UTC)
From reading the linked thread, it appears that the original belief -- and possibly original intent -- was that eating cheesecake shortly before doing Try for Baby would increase the chance of twins. That appears to be a myth, and appears to be what Pescado is referring to in the linked post. However, in OFB as it was shipped, eating cheesecake while pregnant guarantees twins. Twojeffs' fix makes it so that eating cheesecake while pregnant does not guarantee twins, but the fix note mentions that the Sim "MUST already be pregnant". The text should be changed to reflect the way the game actually behaves, possibly with a note that that is apparently not what Maxis originally intended. Dharden (talk) 13:59, December 2, 2014 (UTC)
My copy of the Prima guide for OFB states: "When pregnant Sims (male or female) eat cheesecake, there's a heightened chance they will give birth to twins." That's literally true, in that the chance becomes 100%; but I don't think that's what the writers meant to convey. Dharden (talk) 14:16, December 2, 2014 (UTC)
Judging from Twojeffs' cheesecake mods, cheesecake does its thing by calling the routine used by the "forcetwins" cheat. My guess is that the mods interpolate a random-number check to determine if that routine should be called. Dharden (talk) 15:18, December 2, 2014 (UTC)
Oh, it was pretty ambiguous. I guess it clears things up. Nikel Talk Vote! 07:22, December 5, 2014 (UTC)

Pregnancy Music in the Sims 3[edit source]

Is the music that plays when the parent walks out of the hospital after giving birth to a baby girl different than the music that plays when the parent walks out of the hospital after giving birth to a baby boy? If I can recall correctly, the said music that plays according to gender is different. But I can't be certain. I'd have to do an in-game check, but the Sims 3 runs pretty poorly on my PC with expansion packs installed. -- C.Syde (talk | contribs) 07:10, December 2, 2014 (UTC)

The music is the same for both genders. Ѧüя◎ґ (talk) 21:39, December 2, 2014 (UTC)
Okay. I just wasn't sure. I couldn't really remember what the music sounded like for female babies, and with the passage of time, I must have mis-remembered the music as being different. I'll eventually do an in-game check myself, just to be sure that the music is the same. -- C.Syde (talk | contribs) 21:47, December 2, 2014 (UTC)

How to Know If Your Sim's Pregnant in The Sims 3[edit source]

OK, the jingle can be heard, but what if you're not sure? I'm usually not sure about the jingle, so I find other ways to find out if she's pregnant.

  1. I turn on "testingcheatsenabled true" using Ctrl + Shift + C (just to check) and right-click on my Sim. If it doesn't say "Customize Sim in Create-a-Sim" it means she's pregnant! Then I type in with Ctrl + Shift + C "testingcheatsenabled false"!
  2. This only works with University Life. Click on the school and hover over "Enroll in University" (it will usually be dull, meaning you can't do that action) and when you hover over, if your Sim's pregnant, it will say <sim name> is pregnant. 
  3. Just wait until it says she's pregnant! If it doesn't and you suspect she's pregnant, or you've tried the previous methods, there's something wrong with your game and you'll need to: a. quit to the main menu without saving and try again, b. install a mod/CC to fix it or c. just try again in-game if it lets you!

Question concerning families[edit source]

Is it possible for a male Sim to impregnate multiple females, that are related, at the same time (eg: Mother/Daughter, Sisters, Cousins, Aunt/Niece, etc)? (talk) 04:32, July 17, 2015 (UTC)

Yes, provided that the male is unrelated to the impregnated females. Ѧüя◎ґ (talk) 06:45, July 17, 2015 (UTC)
I suppose so. But it would be overwhelmingly difficult to do without using cheats, unless they live in different households (in the case of The Sims 2). I'm not even sure if it's possible to do with The Sims 3. ― C.Syde (talk | contribs) 08:46, July 17, 2015 (UTC)
It's possible in The Sims 2, you can impregnate your wife her sister, because she is not related to you. But I don't know about The Sims 3. Sims Plumbob.png Player (talk) (mistakes) 09:02, July 17, 2015 (UTC)
It's not that different in The Sims 3. The rule is pretty much like what Auror said. Nikel Talk Vote! 06:11, July 21, 2015 (UTC)
Yeah that's true. But I didn't see what Auror wrote when publishing my comment, because for some strange reason, the edit screen loaded the revision that directly preceded Auror's, which resulted in Auror's edit being removed, upon publishing my own. And I didn't realise what had happened until Auror restored her comment. It's not the first time this sort of publishing error happened. ― C.Syde (talk | contribs) 06:22, July 21, 2015 (UTC)

Glitch??[edit source]

Okay so I recently started playing sims 3 again because sims 4 gets old fast. But when I get a sim pregnant I hear the chime that lets you know your sim is pregnant after you try for baby. My female sim will get sick and throw up maybe once or twice and then it will go on as if she's not pregnant, it's like she never was. She doesn't get sick anymore, never actually becomes pregnant. I have tried this on multiple sims in different cities and the result is all the same (although one time I had a sim get pregnant but her bump and pregnancy status disappeared not long after). I have tried the testingcheatsenabled to see if she is pregnant, one moment the option to edit in CAS is gone, the next it's there! I have NRAAS Story Progression Mod but I have removed it and tried again with the same result. I have so many expansion packs I would hate to have to uninstall and reinstall them. Anyone have any ideas? —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talkcontribs) 00:48, June 12, 2016‎ (UTC) - Please sign your comments with ~~~~

The Sims 2 - Harder to build relationships with pregnant sims?[edit source]

Hello everyone. I had a question about the pregnancy mechanic of TS2. I've noticed for both female and male sims who are pregnant, they are harder to build relationships with. Not with the sim who is not pregnant interacting to the pregant sim, but only with the pregnant sim to another sim. I'll give an example: Sim A is not pregnant, Sim B is pregnant. While building relationships with each other Sim A gains the same amount of relationship to Sim B as usual in normal gameplay, however Sim B's relationship builds up much more slowly to Sim A. I've noticed this as interactions that give lifetime relationship scores such as a highly sucessful "Talk About Hobby" would gain multiple LTR points whereas the pregant sim gains only one, sometimes other interactions that gain smaller amounts would gain nothing at all for a pregnant sim. Has anybody noticed this little quirk before or is this only a thing in my game? If so, I could add this information into the article. Thanks!

Terminating Pregnancy[edit source]

I think the section of Stopping pregnancy where mods are involved should be carried to Game Guides page type instead. There are more of a third-party ways which isn't that suitable for the main article. Referencing it as a {main} reference would be better approach. However, relocating it would clear out some overused space. DrakonoSkerdikas (talk) 20:33, April 11, 2019 (UTC)
