Do you have a The Sims 3 expansion or stuff pack showing as installed in Origin, but not listed in the Expansions & Stuff tab in the game launcher? Here some steps that have helped other players in your situation:

 

1. Close Origin and the launcher completely.

2. Go to C:\Program files (x86)\Origin Games\The Sims 3 or to the folder where you have your game installed.

 

3. Delete the folders in there that correspond to the packs you are missing. Open the spoiler to see a list of the packs and their corresponding folders:

 

Spoiler
Expansion packs:
EP01 - The Sims 3 World adventures
EP02 - The Sims 3 Ambitions
EP03 - The Sims 3 Late night
EP04 - The Sims 3 Generations
EP05 - The Sims 3 Pets
EP06 - The Sims 3 Showtime
EP07 - The Sims 3 Supernatural
EP08 - The Sims 3 Seasons
EP09 - The Sims 3 University life
EP10 - The Sims 3 Island Paradise
EP11 - The Sims 3 Into the future

Stuff packs:
SP01 - The Sims 3 High-End Loft Stuff
SP02 - The Sims 3 Fast lane Stuff
SP03 - The Sims 3 Outdoor living Stuff
SP04 - The Sims 3 Town life Stuff
SP05 - The Sims 3 Master suite Stuff
SP06 - The Sims 3 Kate Perry's Sweet Treats
SP07 - The Sims 3 Diesel Stuff
SP08 - The Sims 3 70s, 80s, & 90s Stuff
SP09 - The Sims 3 Movie Stuff

For example, if you are missing The Sims 3 Ambitions and The Sims 3 Into the future, you would delete the folders EP02 and EP11.

3. Open Origin. The packs will now show as not installed. Install them.

Once the installation has finished, check your launcher again Wink

 

If your packs are still not in the launcher, please, take a look to this post: http://answers.ea.com/t5/The-Sims-3/Sims-3-expansions-missing/m-p/6085793#M222711
