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:

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.

Just read there was a mod to take an existing Sim back to CAS... Would you know off hand where they are? I have a couple of Sims that I would like to change... Oh and thanks. Got one male Sim pregnant and he's been a floating head and feet ever since. LOL

You can use Twallan's MasterController - look in the Advanced options to edit a sim in CAS: http://nraas.wikispaces.com/MasterController

Does this work with Seasons? Or does it have to be updated because male sims get abducted and pregnant in the new exp?

It does not work for seasons, sad to say. You need to assign some to some category or another, not sure how it works. Just, well. Doesn't work. Invisible bodies.

Do you mean invisible in Outerwear, or in all categories?

Edit: I've tested, and this mod still works fine in patch 1.42. It should work exactly the same with Seasons installed except in the Outerwear category, as far as I know.

I haven't noticed anything out of the ordinary except pregnancy with Outerwear. So I would say it works for the rest of the time as normal, like you said.

As for alien pregnancy, they took a shortcut and just used the existing weight slider (alien pregnant male sim just gets fully fat) so there are no issues with that and the pregnancy clothes.

On a related note, I've also noticed pregnant female sims walking around as a floating head so I'm trying to determine if it's a error with my mods or if EA didn't include morphing outwear for females either. If the latter, that's rather cheap of them.

Love your work, btw, cmar :D

@Khevor: Thanks for the detailed info! Can't believe EA used the fat morph for male pregnancy. That's so lazy - even the one maternity outfit they had for men in Sims 2 was better than that. Now I'm very curious to get Seasons and see what they did that could cause the female floaties too.

@NotToDo: I'll have to add at least one Outerwear outfit.

Khevor EA screwed up from what I can see no one has proper morphs for Outerwear and my first pregnant male shows up as a nude bottom and a floating head (Not as a fat sim even) I can't believe they screwed up so badly

CmarNYC thank you so much for these it was the exact issue above that sent me searching, So I will enable them as outerwear since EA clearly doesn't know what they're doing. Simply the fact that they had 2 different studios making Supernatural and Seasons independently of each other at the same time proves they're idiots so thank you very much for this wonderful mod because after trying for 3 sim weeks to get my guy pregnant I did not feel like watching him as a floaty head for the next 3 days

(Following the 3rd post here using S3PE makes it VERY easy to enable these for outerwear, I set unknown12 to true for both longsleeve shirts and all the long pants)

I'm using your pregnancy progress controller, and after my male Sim has their baby, they set it down, and then go to the hospital although not pregnant. They get stuck inside and don't leave.

Please post this in the proper thread for the pregnancy progress controller.

Possibly that particular sim has corrupted data. Does the same thing happen with all sims or all male sims?

Oh, I'm sorry. I only posted it here because it only happens with male sims.

CmarNYC: You rock!! Thanks for keeping my male sims looking sharp when pregnant! I am unsure how they do get pregnant by aliens and not need the clothes you have made. And the male sims do not throw up anymore before pregnancy so as soon as the I hear that pregnancy chime I take that sim to the dresser and dress him how I want him to look, before he "Realizes" that he is pregnant. This also makes that long pause before "realization of pregnancy" a lot shorter!

Don't worry about it - it's just that if others have the same problem and it's caused by the pregnancy progress controller, they might find your question and (if there is one) solution useful, if they find it in the right thread.

I don't know of any way the male pregnancy morphs could do this.

Is it happening with only one male sim or with all of them?
