In most Harvest Moon games where you could get married, after a while your wife would get pregnant and have a baby (or two). Since your wife was an NPC it usually had little impact on gameplay.
In Harvest Moon: A New Begining I picked a female character and just noticed that there are, in fact, male dating options. I'm wondering if the same "settle down and have kids" things plays out, and if so, what affects that has on gameplay (pregnancy is not conducive to large amounts of farming labor). Can my character get pregnant? If so, does that affect me at all or do I just take a day off to have the kid (which is how I believe past HM games handled this)?
