This is a new mesh recolour, and means that you will need to download the particular mesh itself in order for this to show up in your game. See the Meshes Needed section or read the text for more information.
When I saw this product on ThinkGeek years and years ago, my desire to ever be pregnant -- as measured on a scale from 1 to 10 -- briefly jumped from negative 100 to negative 99. To this day, that's still the only time such a thing has happened. So when I saw the themes I could catch up on for stickers, I eventually landed on this as my "Maternity and Beyond" contribution.

...Then I worried that uploading only one outfit was so 2008, so I made two more.

All of these are simple designs on a recolor of sga_girl's textures (with permission), which are in turn recolors of HP's sleepwear mesh. The mesh is not included and easily available at its original location. The graphics on the shirts get a bit stretched in the third trimester, as shown in the attached images, but as there is no way to have separate texture files for each stage of maternity, I did my best.

The first is an estimation of the former ThinkGeek shirt, adjusted for the fact that Sim clothes are actually smaller than human clothes and the full text wouldn't fit on one line. The second is based on this design. Lastly, since I didn't find a third design I liked that was sufficiently different from the first two, I made a simpler one with just words on it. Sims players can probably guess what it says. Or just check the credits, where I've linked to each of the Simlish fonts I used.

All three are enabled for Everyday and Maternity, and are available for YA and Adult (though I think you'll need this mod if you want pregnant young adults). They aren't default replacements, so you'll need a way to plan maternity outfits, such as this coat hook.

Very cool! And yes, shirts stretch a lot in real life too... :D

I laughed out loud. As @SciBirg said, the stretching just adds an adorable realism.
