Myren, Year 22-25 (Monday-Thursday)

Jun. 9th, 2008 | 08:08 pm



Round 6 starts with Evert expanding the home shop further, and starts to sell his own paintings. The company reaches level 3, and Marita has started to show. There will be a baby in this round, if nothing unexpected happens.
 
And – another positive review!



Like in a nightmare, Marita wakes up in the middle of the night with cramps. It’s too early!



Oh no! She looses the baby! Poor, poor Marita, she feels really terrible and blames herself for not taking it easy enough. Poor Evert slept through the whole thing, good for him, he won’t remember it.



It seems the bad mood in the house is contagious though. Evert tries to keep the shop open, but it looses credit and drops to level 2.



That in turn sends him into aspiration failure. -1p for j68.



Then he sits around the couch for hours in his gym clothes, watching TV. He cannot even make the effort to restock his shop.



When at last he did open the shop again, the shelves got empty in no time. The level also rised again to 3 and he got a silver badge in register.
 
Evert got his energy back, and Marita tested positive on her pregnancy test.



After another busy day in the shop, Evert makes himself some dinner, while Marita is trying to sleep her way through the pregnancy without loosing the baby.
 
Stand by for the first-born Myhr in round 7!


Myren after round 6:
Evert Myhr

Your sims sure miscarry a lot! I hope it is due to the harsh living conditions early in the settlement and will be less common later.

It's due to the Inteenimator. It also includes the ability for teens to woohoo and risky woohoo.
It adds an extra spice I think, it's boring with the 100% certainty in tryforbaby-pregnant-babyborn.

Downside with inteenimater is that love interests of teen years are not forgotten, it can be complicated when they are in love with townies that doesn't grow up.

I guessed the Inteenimator was involved, as I've not heard of miscarriages without it. But I had the impression that sims, unlike humans, only miscarried when their motives were low. Later in a legacy or prosperity, you will probably have high quality equipment and perhaps some career rewards that boost moods. I also have my pregnant sims meditate a lot, but this requires a bit of logic skill which a CaS sim may not yet have. Kids who grow up with chess boards rarely have that problem. So hopefully there will be fewer miscarriages in later generations, unless you want to write them in for story purpose or to keep down a population explosion.

It's true it happens when motives are low. In Marita's case though, she was fine when she went to bed, but during the night the hunger fell rapidly, and when it was time to grow the stomach, she lost the baby instead.

Before I used the inteenimater, the risk was that the mother died instead, now that is very rare, but miscarriages happen more frequently.
And you're right that it will probably be less frequent when Mattsmyra reaches a higher comfort level altogether.

The miscarriage rate really has gone down. I think it's more common when they got bad Environment score on top of all other bad needs

Poor sims losing their babies. It does add some realism to it....of course, if my sims lost babies when motives were low most of Breeze Point wouldn't actually exist.....I have a terrible time with pregnant moms in that town.

The miscarriages are a cruel form of population control, but I feel it's needed to compensate for Risky Woohoo
