This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below the description for more information.
It took a lot of work, but here they are - pregnant morphs added to 10 items of male Sim clothing. Now your Sim guys can have a baby bump that grows as the pregnancy advances, and disappears after the birth.

Pros: Well, obviously pregnancy clothing for the guys that works the same way as for the women and doesn't replace or otherwise affect the normal game outfits. The nude body actually works, and looks pregnant. There are enough items of clothing to provide at least one possible outfit for each category. The baby bump becomes noticeable and gets big at about the same rate as for the females, depending on the length of pregnancy you're playing.

Issue: Sometimes the game seems not to recognize the changed body shape and the Sims have an alarming tendency to stick their hands inside their bellies.

If you have my previous male pregnancy meshes, please delete them before using these. It would also be a good idea to delete your cache files the first time you use them.

As of V2 and up, these are separate clothing in CAS with custom thumbnails with a pregnancy icon to make them identifiable. This way, pregnancy outfits can be planned in advance.


TROUBLESHOOTING

Are these compatible with WA/Ambitions/Late Night/XXX expansion?
Almost certainly, yes. Unless the basic way the game handles morphs changes, there's no reason they wouldn't be compatible. Please try it, find out, and don't ask unless there's a problem. Sorry, but I'm getting VERY tired of seeing the same question on every morph-related mod I've done every time a patch or expansion comes out.

But they don't work!
They do work. They've been tested with base game and all the expansion packs up through Seasons. If they don't work, chances are it's your custom content setup that's not working. Before you post a question here, verify that other custom content is working in your game. If your setup is not working, there are help pages and help forums on this site. This is not the place to post about it.

But I'm not getting 'Try For Baby' for male/male couples!
That's not what this mod does - it only provides clothing for males after they get pregnant. For enabling male same-sex Try For Baby, the best mod I know of is NRaas Woohooer: http://nraas.wikispaces.com/Woohooer

Clothing list:

Top nude
Bottom nude
Baggy jeans
Loose pants
Pleated slacks
Swim trunks
Tuxedo
Untucked shirt
Long-sleeve t-shirt
Short-sleeve t-shirt

Added in version 2:
Boxer shorts
Cardigan sweater
Polo shirt
Relaxed jeans
Tank top

Added in version 3:
Trenchcoat
Puffy vest
Casual slacks
Hoodie jacket
Seasons-only: Snowboard jacket

Additional Credits:
The contributors to SimsWiki for info that got me started figuring out the morph structure

And a big thanks to my first Sim model, Eric, for going through 324509654 pregnancies while I was testing this stuff.

** Update 7/19/2010: I've uploaded V2 of the adult male pregnancy morphs. Changes:

- Five new items of clothing added. (Tank top, boxer shorts, relaxed jeans, polo shirt, cardigan)
- All lod1 and lod2 meshes have been reshaped to conform more closely to the female pregnant morph, both for aesthetics and to reduce the issue of overlap with hands, objects, other sims, etc.
- The issue of gapping between the nude top and some of the pants has been fixed.
- All clothing is fully plannable. They will appear as additional items in CAS, can be chosen and personalized before pregnancy, and will be worn during the pregnancy.
- Custom thumbnails are added with a pregnancy icon to indicate which are the pregnancy-enabled items.
- Available as separate packages for those who want to pick and choose, and as one combined package for those trying to reduce their number of packages.

** Update 12/21/2012: It must be the end of the world because I've uploaded V3. Changes:
- Full support for Seasons, with several items enabled for Outerwear.
- Five new items of clothing added. (Base game: Trenchcoat, puffy vest, casual slacks, and hoodie; Seasons: Snowboard jacket)
- All clothing is fully plannable as before with custom thumbnails and presets.
- Available as separate packages for those who want to pick and choose, and as one combined package for those trying to reduce their number of packages.
- The Seasons jacket is in a separate download since it won't work unless Seasons is installed.

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file. Now you will have either a .package or a .sims3pack file.

For Package files:

1. Cut and paste the file into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages folder. If you do not already have this folder, you should read the full guide to Package files first: Sims 3:Installing Package Fileswiki, so you can make sure your game is fully patched and you have the correct Resource.cfg file.
2. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

For Sims3Pack files:

1. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
2. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Find the item in the list and tick the box beside it. Then press the Install button below the list.
3. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the content to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
4. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).


Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.

Love the mod, thank you so much.
I hate to be picky, but can I request an inclusion for the "skinny" jeans? I think they are included in the base game. <3

I've been having issues since I installed patch 1.50, and I just narrowed it down (I think) to this mod. Maybe it's just me though, since no one else seems to be having trouble with it...

It's unlikely this mod would have side effects, since it just duplicates the game morphing system. Anything's possible, though.

I'm having problems getting this mod to work. It could be something I'm doing wrong because I'm new to mods. I have other mods that are working just fine though. I have all of the expansion packs and stuff packs. I'm using CCmagic to manage my mods. I have this mod saved in C:\Users\Cassandra\Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages

Do you see the clothing with the pregnant icon in CAS? Have you tried to use it by getting a male sim pregnant?

Yes, unless you use a mod like NRaas Master Controller to modify the pregnancy outfits he's wearing.

Possibly it's a conflicting default replacement nude top or a nudist mod.

Hey, question: will these work for the alien pregnancies? If not, will you consider enabling alien pregnancies in a future update? I'd like to have a better mesh for alien male pregnancy. Thanks!

I believe the game uses the fat morph for alien pregnancies. The only way to change that would be a mod to the game code.

This mod should not need updating for this or any patch, but let me know if anything seems not to be working.

@instantmagic: I'm blushing. (hmm, no blush icon, lol.) XCAS is the only one of my mods that I know needed to be updated (just got it done) but let me know if any of them aren't working. The others you mentioned aren't the kind that usually need updating.

Could you upload the morphs that you created to add to the clothing? I was using the tutorial that Littlecat made on Tumblr to add pregnant morphs to store clothing for females, and I'd really like to do the same with some of the male outfits. I tried to do it myself by using the trenchcoat's morph as a base, and it kind of worked on one of the male outfits, but I broke the textures and functionality in-game, because I have zero experience in Milkshape or TSRW.

I don't know how Littlecat does the morphs and can't seem to find the tutorial. In any case, the morphs shouldn't have any effect on the textures. If you need the morph meshes, you can generate them from the EA base meshes and the BGEOs in the packages for this mod. I can save you the trouble and upload them here next time I'm at my main computer.

Thank you for uploading them! Littlecat's tutorial is here, btw: http://littlecatpixels.tumblr.com/p...arity-with-tsrw
She uploaded the .wso files for female maternity tops, bottoms, and outfits, that you could add to the clothing, and that's what I'm looking for, except the male ones.

Ah, okay. Littlecat is using TSRW. I didn't do my morphs with TSRW but I can easily enough make a whole-body pregnant reference wso for you to use. I'll do it in the morning and upload it for you.
