I've never liked the +20 pregnancy moodlet. The flavor text even acknowledges that not everyone feels the same way about being pregnant! So why is every sim happy about it the whole time anyway? Why, EA, why?? I liked it even less once I decided to play with 4 seasons to a sim year, and realized that meant looking at that silly, arbitrary +20 for way longer than just 2 days, so I fixed it.

This mod (inspired by Arithmancer's, but going further and designed to avoid conflict with mods that edit the Buffs XML) replaces the default pregnancy moodlet with a custom version that has no mood effect, and adds two new moodlets (Anxiously Expecting, -40; Eagerly Expecting, +20; each lasts 9 hours) that have a chance to be assigned on every hour that a sim has the pregnancy moodlet.

And as usual, the creators of S3PE, for making so much possible
