Description
This mod allows you to change the pregnancy time to be longer or shorter than the default of three days.

The mod comes in 4 flavors. Choose your favorite:
1 day pregnancy (8 hour trimesters)
9 day pregnancy (3 day trimesters)
18 day pregnancy (6 day trimesters)
30 day pregenancy (10 day trimesters)


Install Instructions

1. Choose only ONE flavor of the mod. Extract the file into Documents/Electronic Arts/The Sims 4/Mods (or wherever you normally put mods)

2. In the mods folder, create an empty folder named "unpackedmod"

3. Open resource.cfg, and add the following line if it is not already there:
DirectoryFiles unpackedmod autoupdate


Compatibility

This mod overrides XML resource 03B33DDF 00000000 06F6554A25E46FD0 and will conflict with other mods using the same resource. This resource controls the length of pregnancy, as well as the chances for twins and triplets.

This should be compatible with AgonistAgent's "Babies for Everyone".

Thank you for this reply, I was able to change mine to five days. I just might get into XML mods, still trying to learn.

I love the mod, hate when the mother is so uncomfortable. I'm still getting used to the install directions but i realized the .package file must go into the unpacked folder to be playable. I didnt really get that from the directions. Thanks again.

Having a similiar issue to those above, done the new folder and pasted the package into the mods folder, but I have no idea what you mean by adding a line to the resource.cfg. Opened it in notepad and just copied and pasted the text into it, played the game and ALL my other mods (apart from the script ones) had disappeared. Any chance of a screenshot of how the resource is supposed to look in notepad after you've pasted the text in?

I'm having an issue with at least the 30 day mod where the aging of my pregnant sim stops for the remainder of the pregnancy. Not sure why it's doing that.

The same thing happened to me when I used the 9 day version. My sims were only a few days apart in age and when she had the baby he had aged during the 9 days and she hadn't. I figure since we can just age them up using a birthday cake that will be my workaround until it gets fixed.

Edit: Also, since the 10/01 patch the need for the unpackedmod folder and adding to the resource.cfg is no longer needed to get package files to work. I removed the extra line in the resource.cfg file and deleted the unpackedmod folder and all of my mods are working just fine.

Now when you say that, do you no longer have the age stunt in effect or is what you said for everything else?

I love this mod but nine days just seems too long for a normal life span with the mother's discomfort levels in the 3rd trimester. Plan on making a 6 day pregnancy?

Hello, I'm trying to download the mod, but when I go to open the File it says "Can't access file 7zxa.dll" Any clue what that is?

I have an aging mod in to increase my age lengths so maybe that was the issue. I haven't had any sims get pregnant since I mentioned this. The pregnancy was the only thing different and her aging stopped until she gave birth while the husband continued to age so aging was turned on, just not working for her.

I love this mod. However, one day seems too short, but three days always seems too long. Could you maybe do two days (16 hour trimesters)?

thank you so much for the options i thought 30 was too long but the 9 day one which i downloaded was perfect :)

Would it be too much of a problem if I were to ask for one with 6 days? :3 Then that would be double the length of regular pregnancy time, which is just what I persionally want. Thank you very much for a fantastic mod btw, but I couldn't cope with 9 days lol

Make sure you remember to exercise through the longer pregnancy. My sim carried her baby to full term, and then ended up fat because I just couldn't stand to see a hugely pregnant woman running on the treadmill or lifting weights. I suggest swimming laps. Otherwise, coupled with the longer sim lifetime app, this was much more realistic.
