My sim keeps gasping.

★★★★★ Novice

My sim has a thought bubble that appears over her head. It's a wave with a red circle around it and a line through it, she then gasps and puts her hands over her mouth and looks around at the floor. Does anybody know what this could possibly mean and how to stop it

@michelle_renee86  Can you post an image of what you are seeing?
The red circle with a line would probably be something they do not like.
What are their traits? Paranoid or squeamish come to mind based on your description.

@michelle_renee86  my sims do that all of the time and when I click on their action in the queue area, it's about the toddler.  So if you have a toddler, that would definitely cause the gasping and hand-to-mouth action as well.  Of course, that would have little to do with the circle with the line through it in their though bubble unless the toddler may be doing something s/he isn't supposed to perhaps..

@EuphorialQueen  I will post a screenshot the next time it happens. As for her traits she has Dog Lover, Top-Notch Toddler, Good Manners, Neat, Responsible, and Gregarious.

@PenguinFoop  I thought about that too, but she doesn't have a toddler and she is the only sim in her household, at the moment.

I am not 100% sure exactly what is causing this reaction. The one picture appears to be one of the Void-critters or something similar.
The other picture may be related to whatever caused her embarrassment?
It appears to be a random reaction that is more of a curiosity.  Unfortunately I am not able to provide a full explanation.
Please report back if you figure it out.

Edit to add: 
You said she is a dog lover.  Does she have a pet or is one nearby?
Is this Sim available on the gallery?
I would be willing to test your Sim to see if I can replicate this issue.

★★ Guide
@EuphorialQueen and @michelle_renee86 Could this be a mod related issue? Top right corner L or Any controls? Could it be that you are in need of an update?

@Trismagistos  I'm not a console player (well for Sims 4 anyway) but I think that L symbol in the top right is for the Left stick on an XBox or PS4 controller (i.e. click the Left stick for View Controls). Is that the symbol you are referring to? If this is on XBox or PS4 it can't be mod related.

 

Sorry if I misunderstood your post.

★★ Guide
@RandomBuzziness You could be definitely right! I am not a console or Xbox player neither. So, @michelle_renee86, when you do play the Sims 4 on a console just discard my suggestion. If not please check your mods.
