Now when you click on an empty cot there are three options - two are pregnancy related and one is the old "add a baby" in 24 hours option where you get a baby without going through pregnancy. But who wants to do that? Let"s look at the new and more interesting options of how to have a baby with pregnancy.
A great new feature that"s been added is that sims no longer need to be married to have a baby. The only requirement is that your sim is an adult female. When your sim is pregnant they have maternity leave which means they can"t take part in professions, careers, hobbies or live events until the give birth.
