The Sims Freeplay- Guide to Pregnancy

Early Access to Beta Provided by EA/ Firemonkeys- may differ from actual version

In this post I will explain how the two types of pregnancy work! The Add a Baby option is still available if you still want a baby without pregnancy

You firstly need to complete the Two and a Half Sims Quest and A Bump-y Ride Discovery Quest to unlock pregnancy, once you have you will find these three options when you click on a crib:

  • Pregnancy Event
  • Pregnancy
  • Adding a Baby

Pregnancy Event:

  • Takes 9 days to complete, each day represents one month of pregnancy
  • There are daily goals and support tasks to be completed
  • Daily goals have to be completed by the pregnant sim, there are 9 days of goals to complete
  • Support tasks can be completed by all other sims
  • If you complete the daily goals every day and all the support tasks the new sim (baby) will earn baby bonuses- they will earn more experience points when they complete actions, complete actions faster, are not affected by low motives (low needs) and they will have these bonuses for life!
  • You don’t have to finish a days goals on time, if you are behind you will start on the next day as soon as the previous days goals are complete BUT you cannot complete day 9 once the time is up, the baby will be born straight away once the time is up
  • Completing the goals and tasks earns you maternity tokens which are used to buy maternity clothes and nursery furniture from the maternity store
  • Once you reach day 4 your sim will reach the second trimester and will grow a baby bump and change into their maternity clothes
  • Once you reach day 7 your sim will reach the third trimester and the baby bump will get bigger!
  • If you don’t manage to complete this event in the time limit you will miss out on the baby bonus but the baby will still be born
  • If you can wait until a pregnancy event is offering a maternity prize pack for completing in time, there is usually one available each update. You can find all the prize packs available in this post

NOTE: You can only complete one Pregnancy Event at a time

TIP: If you cannot afford the simoleons for the appointments select the LP option instead, this post may help if you need to earn some LP quickly!


  • Takes 6 days
  • There are no daily goals or tasks to complete so you cannot earn maternity tokens
  • Pregnancy skips the first trimester so your sim starts with the baby bump and after 3 days the bump will get bigger
  • The baby will be born once the 6 day time limit is up

NOTE: You can only have one Pregnancy Event but can have many pregnancies at one time


  • You need to complete the A Bump-y Ride Discovery Quest to unlock pregnancy, build the Maternity Store to start this quest
  • Only adult female sims can become pregnant but they don’t have to be married!
  • Pregnant sims have maternity leave so they cannot participate in professions, careers, hobbies or live events until they give birth
  • Once the quest is over you can still earn maternity tokens to buy all the items from the maternity store by completing another pregnancy event (206,740 tokens are needed in total to buy everything from the maternity store)

  1. I need help! My sim has been pregnant for a month and won’t give birth. What can I do? I moved someone out of the house and still nothing. She can’t do anything because she’s pregnant and I can do make over because she is pregnant. Help!

    I love your page

  2. Completed the 9 day pregnancy challenge, however my sim wont have her baby. Been pregnant for nearly 4 weeks. Any suggestions?

  3. Help, how do I know when it’s going in to the next day? I don’t want to miss it but I can’t work out or see anywhere which shows how long I have left

    • The time is 24 hours from the time you started the event so if you started at 5pm you will have taken a day by 5pm the next day but you have to complete all the tasks before you can move onto the next day. There is an overall timer on the pregnancy event tab but you cannot see a daily count down.

  4. Does each day end at midnight or after 24 hours have passed, I’m really worried about not having enough time to complete the daily goal because I started the pregnancy event late in the day!

    • It should work but don’t add another sim to your town if you only have one sim space left until your sim count is full for example 12/13 sims otherwise you will have problems when it comes to adding the baby as you won’t have space for them.

  5. I can’t seem to find it in your post, if my sims are maxed out I can’t add a baby correct? So I shouldn’t start this quest.

  6. Can I earn baby bonus once the quest is over? Will I able to complete all days’ daily tasks if the time limit is over and will I get baby bonus in this case?

    • You cannot get the baby bonus if you don’t complete in the time limit but you will need to complete all the daily tasks even once the time limit is up so your sim can give birth

  7. I have a toddler through the pregnancy event and the baby does not have a dad even though the mom is married and was married before the pregnancy. How do I fix this? Is there a way to fix this? Would ageing him to a preteen and adopting work?

  8. ‘All daily goals and support tasks have to be completed before the baby is born’

    I’ve done the Pregnancy event 3-4 times, and I’ve never had to complete all the daily goals and support tasks in order for the baby to be born, even if I don’t complete it in the time limit for the baby bonus. After the nine days are complete, the baby is born even though I haven’t completed all the daily goals and support tasks.

    I find this weird because I though it was the same for everyone, but it obviously doesn’t sound like it.

    • This appears to have changed since pregnancy was added to the game, you used to have to complete all the daily goals and support tasks before a sim could give birth but I think because a lot of people couldn’t afford the appointment tasks they changed this.

      • For those that still have a pregnant sim…. I had another baby growing in a crib so this paused my sim. Once this was complete, I clicked on the same crib that was used for the quest at her house, and the ‘give birth option’ came up, hope this helps x

  9. Is there a limit to the number of baby bonus babies you can have? I have 4, and the last time I completed the pregnancy event, I completed all the tasks and i even saw the baby bonus icon light up at the end of the event like it usually does, but it was a regular baby. Thanks!

    • How did you get 500,000 token? I have already finished my pregnancy event but haven’t received the 500,000 token.

      • This screenshot was from the early access version not my own game, the makers provided me with that many tokens so I could buy everything from the maternity store so I could post about it. You will earn 38,320 by completing all the daily goals and support tasks so you would need to complete a lot of pregnancy events to earn that many.

  10. I am at 90% of the quest “A Bump-y Ride” and I am doing the pregnancy event. My question is, do I have to wait all 7 days for the baby to be born or it will be born as soon as I do the daily goals-support tasks? ‘Cause I wanna do more quests but I am stuck with this one.

  11. If my sim gets pregnant before she is married (she has a partner) will the baby have a father? If she married her partner after the baby is born, will he become the father?

      • My female sim got pregnant by her partner who lives in a different house, while she currently lives with her other male partner. Apparently if a female sim has more than one partners/lovers, the father of the baby will be the first partner, so it may seemed like my female sim got pregnant by her ex boyfriend.. haha

  12. How much simeleons do yo need to pay all of the appoitments and how much maternity tokens do you eran throught the event?

  13. Can you finish the bump-y ride quest and move on to doing other quests without doing all the tasks in the pregnancy event? Will you finish the quest once the event time runs out?

  14. Hey! Your posts are super helpful and the ones I turn to when I need help or have questions of any kind. I was wondering, if I delete my sims partner while they are still pregnant, will the baby still be born? I would try it for myself but I’m on day 6, and I don’t want to ruin my progress if the widowed sim is no longer married and somehow… Discontinues her pregnanxy (?), for lack of a better term?

    • I’ve not tried this myself but I would guess that the pregnancy would continue even without the partner because they no longer have to be married to complete the pregnancy events.

      • I have completed the pregnancy event quite a few times and so have purchased all the items in the baby store. Now when you complete the pregnancy event, you don’t use the maternity bucks so I have accumulated a lot. Any suggestions how I can spend them, or turn them into simpletons perhaps?

  15. Anyone done a pregnancy event with a baby bonus sim? I’m curious if the pregnancy tasks are shorter.

  16. Hi I’m trying to complete the support task plan a ‘girls night in’ however when I complete it the task doesn’t change in the menu and remains uncompleted. I was wondering if it needed to be 4 female sims or maybe all 4 sims using the same model of phone. Thanks.

    • How many sims does it say you need to complete this support task? 4 sims sounds like a very small amount as usually 11 or more sims are needed for support tasks.

  17. Do I have to do the 9 day pregnancy event or can I just do the 6 day one to get through the bumpy ride quest? It looks like too much trouble and money to go through. And I hear the bonus baby is not really worth it and sometimes is annoying because if you are on an event they finish faster than everyone else. I understand that I can do the event and just not complete it and still have the baby but I really don’t even want the hassle or pressure of seeing the tasks.

    • You have to do the 9 day pregnancy event for the quest but once the 9 day time limit is up the event will end and the baby will be born so don’t worry too much if you don’t want to complete the event

      • Question: If a single (however engaged or partnered) female Sim has a pregnancy who will be the father? Will the baby be fatherless?
        Scenario: I have a Male Sim who is engaged to a Female Sim and is partners with another female Sim. I would like him to be the father of both pregnancies/babies without marriage (drama in Sims Freeplay.. Lol). Is this possible? Both females only have romantic relationships with this one male. I have not yet began a pregnancy with a single female Sim. I’m afraid that the child will be fatherless and once the single female sim is married, her child will not acknowledge the husband as his/her father, or future children as their siblings. Does anyone know how this works?

      • So when this first came out I got a married sim pregnant but I didn’t complete the 9 day challenge. To this day she is still pregnant and can’t be born. I changed out the crib that I originally used because I didn’t think that would be an issue. What can I do?

  18. I build my maternity store but cannot do the pregnancy event. I want to do the bumpy quest but i cannot start it. Any reason for that?

  19. What happens if I never attempt my daily goals?
    Will I still get my baby bump on the fourth day?
    Or will I be stuck on day one with no bump?

    • You will still get the baby bump and the baby will be born after the 9 days are up, the only thing you don’t get is the baby bonus for completing all the daily goals and support tasks in the time limit

  20. Okay. Two questions. With the full experience, do the clothes your sim wears automatically adjust to the portion of the trimester it fits, or do I have to put my sim in the maternity outfit I bought. And, second, my sim has concentric circles around her avatar; what do they signify? I know when it’s one colored circle, it’s signifying their age in their age group. But with two colored ones, I don’t know which color represents pregnancy and which represents age.

    • Once they reach the second trimester they will put on the maternity clothes you have brought automatically, you can purchase different ones from the maternity store.
      The circle closest to the picture of your sim is their age and the one on the outside is their pregnancy so once that circle is full they will give birth.

  21. I just did this for the first time. My new baby doesn’t have a father. I’m sure she does but how do I find out. Is there any way for her supposed-to-be father to adopt her?

    • Do they have any sims that they have been romantic with? This may be the father or if they are single then there probably isn’t a father so a sim can only adopt this child if the mother sim is deleted.

  22. Hi Everyone, If I start the pregnancy event the day before the actual event starts, if I complete it, can I still get the prizes. Please anewer fast.

  23. Hi I love your blog! I have a question I can’t figure out. I want to start a pregnancy event to get Maternity pack 15. But it says available in 6 days. Would I have to wait 6 days before I can begin the pregnancy event?
    Thank you so much for your hard work

  24. Hi. I completed 2 pregnancy events in time and earned the baby boost but I don’t know where the maternity packs are. I am not seeing the items in my inventory and I don’t see them in the maternity store.

    • They won’t be in your inventory as you will need to purchase them or if it is free it will show in the store rather than your inventory, it depends what the pack is but most of the items can usually be found in the infant section.

  25. Hi! When do the prizes unlock? I’m on Day One and earning tokens but can’t buy anything yet. I recall from my last event you could buy stuff along the way, I don’t recall having to wait until Day 9 to buy some of the prizes. Thank you!

    • Which prizes do you mean? The ones from the maternity store or are you completing a pregnancy event during a time when a prize pack is available? If so you cannot get the prizes unless you complete the pregnancy event in the time limit.
