Cheat your way in and out of a successful pregnancy
Updated 6/6/17 to reflect updated cheat code.
In the first three Sims games, pregnancy was a difficult task. Although there were cheats that could influence the course of a pregnancy (like the gender of the child), or to instantly spawn a baby on the lot by clicking on the mailbox, there was no way to cheat your Sim into a pregnancy.
Enter The Sims 4, which comes complete with a set of pregnancy cheats to help you get around this challenge. If you can't Try for Baby, or you simply don't want to, never fear! Cheats are here.
To bring up the cheat console, type Ctrl + Shift + C. Then begin by using:
Now that you have turned on testing cheats, you can use the following Sims 4 pregnancy cheat to make the active Sim pregnant and in labor:
This cheat also works on ghosts!
If you purchase a bassinet before using the pregnancy_inlabor cheat, your Sim will have a fake birth.
Unlike in previous games, you cannot influence the gender of a child while the mother is pregnant. However, the mother no longer changes into a separate (usually hideous) set of maternity clothes, so it's not all bad news!
