19th Oct 2006, 3:37 AM
How long is the pregnancy length of the dogs? My pointers 4days gone , i think, and im just wondering how much longer i shall have to wait *impatient*
19th Oct 2006, 3:44 AM
that's a long time, i've only done one pregnancy and it took about a day and a half to two days
19th Oct 2006, 3:45 AM
Hmm yeah, i was starting to wonder whether my dog is stuck =/
19th Oct 2006, 4:21 AM
might wanna fix the stuck dog
19th Oct 2006, 4:25 AM
How do you do that? Force an error?
19th Oct 2006, 7:21 AM
Short of recommending "save and try boolProp for a lark", no clue.
19th Oct 2006, 7:28 AM
I'm having the same problem with dogs and cats, they get pregnant (or at least that's what i think as the option to try for puppy disappears) but then nothing happens ever again.
i think it must be a hack conflict, i'm going to try taking out all hacks later. forcing errors didn't change anything.

hmm,i havent had that,but,the trainer did pick up my cute li'l pink kitten and keep her in her hands.... :(
my 2pregancys we 2days, MiMi gave birth as soon as she came back from a walk,and coming back from work,lol! shes had 5pink babies! ^-^

Make sure you have aging on. That might affect it.
It's also a good idea to remove all your hacks. People are reporting all kinds of problems caused by the old hacks.
19th Oct 2006, 6:08 PM
I had removed as many hacks as i could find, most i added [hack] to as i added them so i'd know which were hacks, but some of the first ones havnt got [hack] infront of them so im having some bother finding any that may still be there.
Edit:actually i may have a check through in clean installer see if i have any in red
19th Oct 2006, 6:15 PM
I had all hacks in one sub folder and just went ahead and trashed the whole shebang lol I kept all replacement items though such as default replacement skintones.
19th Oct 2006, 7:51 PM
I found a couple more using clean installer which ive moved out, i think ill just re-get a dog pregnant and see if it works
20th Oct 2006, 2:55 PM
Same problem here.
20th Oct 2006, 6:45 PM
It takes a few days I think. I played the dog couple that comes with the game and for a while I thought they were bugged too. There is no warning that they are goign to have kittens or anything, the message just randomly popped up one day when I was getting ready to take them downtown (><).
20th Oct 2006, 7:52 PM
My cat took 5 days. I forced an error but it didn't seem to do anything. But then after a couple of sim hours a pop-up screen came up that there were two kittens on the way.
20th Oct 2006, 7:58 PM
My dog had hers in a day and an half.
Which is more realistic, because that kinda dog has theirs in 9 weeks. If 3 days is 9 months...then a day and an half is somewhat accurate.
20th Oct 2006, 8:02 PM
wow my one pregnancy was only like 2 it didnt seem to last long at all...also you sure she is pregnant ...did you here the music?
21st Oct 2006, 7:31 AM
Mine seems to take forever, too. The first pregnancy was four days, and this one is going on the third and hasn't happened yet. Maybe it depends on the pet or is random, or something? I looked it up in the manual thingy, and it said "...will eventually give birth to a litter". That was just a little frustrating.
21st Oct 2006, 8:33 AM
Ok, today I had the problem with going on 4 days and no litter.
What happened is...I'd added another person to the familyand then moved them all out....
There were enough empty slots to have a kitty in....but I think the changing of people during pregnancy messed up something. So I spawned the INSIM and clicked restore family and *instantly* she gave birth to 4 kittens.
Which is actually more than there were slots available.
Try restoring the family. Might set it right.
21st Oct 2006, 12:24 PM
Eh... when I had my cat have kittens, it only took like a few sim hourse from the WooHoo'ing till she got her kitten.
I have no hacks by the way (removed them all) - I was kinda surprised it happened so fast. :D
21st Oct 2006, 12:38 PM
Im not too sure about his but so far mine have taken about 3 1/2 days. Maybe it has something to do with the number of puppies/kittens in the litter.
21st Oct 2006, 12:58 PM
Ah could be something like that Sims2rox4eva, i played the Katt family and they had two litters which took about 3days, so maybe ill play my pointers family just one more day, i reckon i had some sort of hack in when she got pregnant and took it out during her pregnancy so i think maybe somehow that caused her to get stuck but ill give her another play to make sure
21st Oct 2006, 6:26 PM
i think it's random. my kitty got pregnant and never showed for like 3 days. i was about to give up and take out all my hacks when i suddenly got a screen saying "there's TWO new babies on the way."
21st Oct 2006, 8:49 PM
Im probally wrong but
maybe theres something like, you wait one day for one kitten, two days for two kittens, etc..or something?
21st Oct 2006, 10:28 PM
I had my dog get pregnant and she had 3 puppies within 2 days. Actually I think it was a little less than 2 days.
21st Oct 2006, 10:29 PM
I only waited 2 days for my litter of four boysterous puppies!
21st Oct 2006, 10:52 PM
So I spawned the INSIM and clicked restore family and *instantly* she gave birth to 4 kittens.I thought InSim doesn't work with pets. Maybe there's the conflict?
22nd Oct 2006, 1:57 AM
This happened to me too.
I had one guy (Donald, son of Dina Caliente and Mortimer Goth), who had a black and tan hound and a Shiba Inu. They bred and had absolutely adorable puppies within like 1 day (maybe more but it seemed awful fast).
Now I have another family (some of Brandi Broke's kids) who have a couple of mutts and they tried for babies, were successful, complete with music, and it's been 4 days but no pups.
I have three Sims in the house and then the 2 dogs. I also have absolutely no hacks or custom content (my sim-playing computer doesnt even have internet, so no chance of hacks interfering ever, ever).
22nd Oct 2006, 1:59 AM
No, I doubt it's a 3 kitty 3 day thing.
22nd Oct 2006, 2:28 AM
I have had two seperate households have babies. One was the Maxis Kat family and one was the other Maxis family with the one guy and dog (can't remember his name). Anyway, they had a litter of 3 cats and a litter of 3 dogs and both pregnancies took 3 days. Hmm...
22nd Oct 2006, 2:48 AM
Seems that each pregnancy can be a totally random amount of days then
22nd Oct 2006, 5:26 AM
i've had 6 pregnancies and they have tended to be around 2 days (sometimes a few hours longer, esp for dogs). This includes 4 dog pregnancies and 2 cat pregnancies. The offspring have ranged from 1 to 4. I'm playing with only one hack--the larger families, aka lot full of sims, by Doc Doofus (I think that's the guy). The only time the pregnancy lasted more than a few hours over 2 days was when the mom dog went to work and came back with many give birth actions in her cue and ended up stepping out the car and immediately dropping down to give birth. The first dog pregnancy was closer to a day and a half.
Although most of these pregnancies happened with only one family. I'll have to try it in different lots and different neighborhoods. I don't know why, but maybe that's the reason for all these different times. Or perhaps, every game is unique in some way and that flavors this. It's a real connundrum that people are having different pregnancy lengths, since we've all had approx. 3 day preg length with Sim people.

I have one dog pregnancy that's been going on for about three and a half WEEKS. I've forced errors, I've moved lots, I've removed all CC, she had a pet job but keps saying she couldn't go for being pregnant, and eventually got fired but never gave birth, I've turned aging on, turned aging off, deleted the dog and exited the lot to respawn her, litereally everything I could think of and she still hasn't given birth, in the time she's been pregnant I have had other dogs and cats sucessfully have litters (all pregnancies seemed to be within a few hours of 2 days).
23rd Oct 2006, 4:17 AM
In my first test, the pregnancy took about 12 hours.
23rd Oct 2006, 4:21 AM
Well one my doggies is pregnant right now and waiting for the birth! She just got pregnant...
Slightly off topic but every time my dogs try to sleep on their bed or house they get like kicked out. I mean they will lay down for 5 seconds and then they like float off of the bed or out of the house. I have Insim, so I removed it. Do you think that might be why?
23rd Oct 2006, 4:34 AM
Have you tried again since removing insim?
23rd Oct 2006, 5:13 AM
lol Ok works, I took out Dizzy's Light hack, Colorenabler, and Risky woohoo pregnancy tuning... or something like that lol
