Can rooms have multishapes due to it?

A few minutes ago I created a topic for the new Feature Quest - L-Shaped Rooms for sharing our experiences with the new feature.

This time the new feature exactly says what we get „L-Shaped Rooms“. So, no multishape.

At the end of the month another maternity quest starts. If someone did not build the maternity store yet, when is a good day to do that?

Right now. Once you built the maternity store you'll have to complete the "A Bumpy Ride" quest which includes a 9 day pregnancy event. Only after completing that quest can you do any of the pregnancy events with new prizes.

So basically start building today, click maternity store at the 20th, do a 9 day pregnancy until the 29th to directly start another 9 day horror run to be able to unlock the new pregnancy items?

I don't know the timing, but pregnancy event is possible but difficult to do during a crafting event, especially at the beginning when you don't have 13 sims tied up with crafting stations. I think it's more difficult to do during a SimChase as both events can require most of your sims for some tasks.

So look at the timing of the event calendar and figure out when the overlap will be best for you. Or decide you don't care about getting a super baby. Or you don't care about one of the other events. Or you can afford a kaxillion SP to keep up. Good luck.

Exactly. For a pregnancy event I have 2 lots with 10 Sims each for the support tasks. You need phones, refrigerators, stoves, sinks, couches and dining table with chairs (preferably 3 star rated) for those 20 Sims.

One of the pregnant Sims tasks is either a doctor's or a yoga appointment every day. Those cost either tons of simoleons or you can use about 14 LP every day (126 total for the event). Make sure you have those saved up before because you need 20 Sims for the support tasks and won't have many left to generate LP or simoleons.

I agree with SKatF to check the event schedule in the first post of this thread for overlapping events.
