The Sims is a computer-based game that allows you to create and control a character. With this character, you can have a simulated family, get a job and buy a wide array of items. You can also have a simulated baby.


In free play, you must get your character to find an opposite sex companion. You must then develop the relationship between these two characters to the point of them being in love. Once you do this, you can try to make a baby.


There are three places where you can try to have a baby: the first is in a bed, the second is in a clothes booth, and the third place is in a hot tub. Each place has a different percentage chance of success for having a baby: the bed is 60 per cent, the clothes booth is 50 per cent and the hot tub is 25 per cent.


To have a baby, you must bring up the in-game prompt that asks, “Try for a baby.” This prompt only appears if you are in one of the three qualified places and if you have two characters that want to have a baby. For the characters to want a baby they must be in love. You also must choose earlier prompts, such as “Make out” and “Woohoo”, before the “Try for a baby” prompt will appear.

How To Know

After you choose “Try for a baby”, you will hear a lullaby playing in the background. To know if the female character is pregnant, you can relax both characters on a bed. If the “Try for a baby” prompt does not appear, your character should be pregnant. Or, if you wait a short amount of time, pregnancy signs will appear.

Side Note

An important note: You can have a baby in the PC version of the game, you cannot have a baby in the PlayStation 2 (PS2) version. The above steps only apply to having a baby on the PC version. On the PS2 version, you can only become pregnant by looking through a telescope outdoors at night and this leads to virtual aliens abducting the character and impregnating them.
