So sorry, Reggiko! Another way to avoid losing your heir -- move in the prospective spouse, try for baby, have the baby, and then have the spouse propose.

Can an Immortal complete more than 2 aspirations provided no other Immortal completes the same ones and excluding Bodybuilder, of course.

Alternately, is it permissible to set aside aspirations that all Immortals are allowed to complete?

Well, it was time for my Gen 2 to age up to child. So, I clicked on the bassinet, and she aged up, first to child, and then immediately to teen!
I think it might be the case that the game happened to age her up on that same moment (it was roughly a day after the notice) and then my action aged her up again. Obviously a child shouldn't age up to teen by clicking on a bassinet.

So what should / can I do now? Go back to a previous save?

Sorry to hear of what happened, reggiko. That really stinks when you fail a challenge due to complete RNG. I have to avoid being playful because I tend to have too many happy moodlets and the instant I see Very Playful, I freak my shorts and drag the Sim to a mirror to calm them down. Anyways, here is to better luck with your second attempt.
I play The Sims 4 for fun, so I don't care if I never end up being interviewed for the Dynasty Hall of Fame; people who play for keeps burn out too easily and don't enjoy playing the games, so I am going to not sweat the details.

Yes, children can complete as many childhood aspirations as they can manage.

I'm up to Gen 4! :)

I have  a question about NPC's not in homes, like the librarian, mail carrier, etc. What happens if they get pregnant? Can they even get pregnant? Do they stay "Not in World" or does the game move them into a lot? Unthinkingly, I moved one of Don's sons in to be the next pollinator only to realize after the fact that he is related to almost all of the females of YA age! I did have other pollinators, but they mostly produced males with, um, unfortunate genetics. Anyway, that was definitely a <slaps forehead> moment.

Yes, they can get pregnant.  No, the game doesn't always place them in a home but once in awhile, depending on the current population, it might do just that.  If they are homeless both the mother and child might be culled by the game.

Hi everyone. I just got back into the game and started my second try at this. The first one failed due to my stupidity as I used roses that the founder did not care for completely himself. I took some time off the game to try some other games and now I've started my second run. All was going great until my founder was about 10 days into his adult span. He had completed two aspirations, had his skills, rewards, parties and whims all done. Then I realized that he hadn't even stared a career yet and this isn't Sims 3 where I can max a career easily.
Oops.
So my founder, Lazarus Long, just got home from work where he hit level 10. His age bar is bubbling and I got the pop-up warning of imminent death. I had the ambrosia waiting. My hands were sweating and I was sitting on the edge of my seat up until the time he finished it. His family kept interrupting his meal and he would get up and walk around the table to sit closer. I would scream and cancel the interactions so he would eat.
Finally when his age bar reset, I saved the game and took a walk around the block to relax. I think I had the "very tense" mood going for the last hour or so.
My only advice: Plan your whole sim's life out and don't forget to keep checking back in on your plan!
I just needed to tell someone who would appreciate - my friends all think I'm crazy when I talk about my games. Thanks everyone!

Thanks, Ginj. I'm naming all the sims after my favorite Heinlien characters. First generation are Hazel, Castor and Pollux. I'm just pulling names out as they are needed so we'll see who gets used. I'm not doing a story as I found the story takes longer than the playing and that actually was what stopped some of my Sims 3 dynasties from finishing.

I know that tense feeling lvrugger.  My gen 1 and 2 are both elders now with 2-3 ambrosias eaten each but I still feel "very tense" as soon as I get the long life coming to an end message.... I even dream that I forget to make the ambrosia in time! Good luck with your next gens

I had to laugh @lvrugger  with you shouting at your sim to eat his ambrosia and cancelling talking interactions etc. I was like that every time my elders had to eat ambrosia. Talk about tense! lol Congrats on your first immortal.
@tjtemple I had dreams like that too!! I even dreamt that my 8th heir forgot to go to school when he was a child, talk about a nightmare.  ::)

Is it ok to make the ambrosia ahead of time and just keep it in your inventory?  That way no stress over whether or not you have enough time to make it before the founder/heir are going to die.  You just always keep one "in stock".

Yes you can make ambrosia ahead of time.  Food will get bad, but I'm pretty sure it will still work (reset age back to beginning elder).

One thing I worry though, will the sim automatically eat the Ambrosia if it is in inventory?  I usually just build a room with no doors and put ambrosia in there, safer that way (nobody can get in).

I keep mine cooked and up in the roof now! After the nights of terror I'm not taking any chances. They stay fresh because my founder completed the chef aspiration so his food never goes bad.

Ambrosia never spoils regardless who makes it. I made batches and batches of it and stored it in the basement at once point. It remains unspoilt forever. Also I have never seen a sim eat it autonomously. I doubt that they can but I still kept mine hidden away, just in case.

So far there has been no eating autonomously.  I have to tell her to eat it but at least it's there, ready to go no matter where she is.  With my forgetfullness it is important to me.  Glad it's ok.  It would be a real bummer to have failed if it wasn't!

My elder gen 2 (of 5) heir is feeling very odd a day or two after being abducted by aliens and the little soother icon has appeared.  Should I assume he's expecting an alien baby?  Do I have to keep it and raise it and allow it to age etc?  I can't send it back to it's home planet?  (This is my own stupid fault for forgetting to click the sattelite dish one morning!).  This will bring my household to 7 long before I am ready! :-[

Yes, you can send the infant back to Sixam. And yes, it sounds like your elder is pregnant.
