Woman Sees Strange Liquid On Toilet Seat, Calls Doctor


What Is Happening?

Caitlyn’s mouth drops as she glances down.  Her eyes are glued to the scene in front of her as she slowly moves back toward the bathroom door. She shouts for help, a thousand questions racing through her head.

Her husband runs in and seems just as confused as she does. The couple exchanged looks and paused. What had gone down here?

Love At First Sight

James and Caitlyn Layne had lived a charmed life up until now. When they found each other they both knew that it was love at first sight. It wasn’t long before they had moved in together.

They bought a lovely home and adopted two golden retrievers. But for Caitlyn, being a mom had always been the dream. She grew up in a large family, so she knew how important family was. Up until now, she had been content to play house. Until one fateful day.

She Wants More

Married in 2017, the couple had put down roots in the city of Buffalo, New York. Everything was on track to being a happy family, the next logical step was of course to grow their family. 

The dogs were their fur babies but what Caitlyn really wanted was children of her own with the love of her life. So, one day, she stopped taking her birth control pills.  

It’s Not Happening

Caitlyn made sure to take all her prenatal vitamins. She ate healthily and made sure to get enough rest. But despite all their efforts, a year had passed, and there was still no baby. 

Caitlyn knew that she needed some tests, so she made an appointment with her doctor. To her relief, the results came back clear. What was the problem? 

Looking At Other Options

Caitlyn and James knew that there had to be some way, any way to make their dream of a family a reality. They considered IVF but upon further investigation found that the fees for the procedure were far more expensive than what they could afford. 

They decided that they would put their dreams on hold… for now. Then, seven months later, Caitlyn made the discovery that turned her world upside-down.

A Great Weekend

It was a Sunday evening, and Caitlyn had just celebrated the weekend by going for drinks with her girlfriends. As she walked back into her apartment, she greeted her husband with a hug before making her way to the bathroom. 

Once finished in the toilet, she got up and turned around to wash her hands. But then she sees something. It’s on the toilet seat.

Well, That’s Odd

Caitlyn’s mouth drops, and she starts to question what caused this to happen. She shouts for help, and her husband comes rushing in. He looks at Caitlyn and is as just as confused. “Maybe it’s because of the new cleaner I used…” she stammers, pointing to the toilet seat. It had turned bright blue!     

But, as it turned out, the mysterious blue ring on the porcelain wasn’t caused by a new cleaning product. And its presence had far more serious implications. 

Calling The Doctor’s Office

The next morning, Caitlyn called the doctor’s office. Speaking to the consulting nurse, she said: “I know this is a strange question… It’s probably the strangest question anyone has ever asked you.” 

The nurse said that she doubted that and asked Caitlyn to proceed with her question. “Then I proceed. After she was finished laughing at me, she said it was the oddest question, and she asked around the office, more laughter, and couldn’t help me,” Caitlyn recalls.

Look Deeper

“I then called my mother-in-law to check her bathroom since I had been there the night before. Totally normal,” Caitlyn explained.   

But she couldn’t shake the feeling that there had to be something more to the strange occurrence. Her anxiety began to grow. Something was wrong with her. She just knew it. What was going on?

Here’s Your Answer

That night, while Caitlyn and her husband were nestled in bed, she got out her phone and Googled “blue toilet seat.” While she waits for the responses to load she questions what it could possibly mean. If it wasn’t the new cleaning product, what could it be? 

Then the page loads and Caitlyn’s face drops. Her heart begins to pound in her chest, and her cheeks flush. Silently, she turns to her husband and shows him her phone.

Going To The Pharmacy

The next day, Caitlyn finished work and headed straight to the pharmacy. As she walked into the store, she discretely browsed the aisles while she slowly made her way over to the one aisle she wanted—the one aisle that would answer the hundreds of questions running through her mind.

Hardly daring to breathe, she picked up the box and ran to the counter.  

Blue Toilet Seat

It turned out that when she searched “blue toilet seat,” the night before, it resulted in hundreds of results about how pregnancy hormones can turn porcelain toilet seats blue. 

Supposedly, the reason may be Chromhidrosis or a disorder of the sweat glands. Despite not thinking she was pregnant, Caitlyn knew she had to take a pregnancy test to confirm.

Taking The Test

As Caitlyn arrives back at her apartment, her husband rushes over to her, eager to find out the results. The two made their way to the bathroom to do the test. 

While she carefully follows the instructions on the box, they wistfully talk about what life would be like with a little human pattering about. Once the three minutes passed, she finally had the answer. And it was an answer she was not expecting at all. 

The Result

The result was positive! James and Caitlyn look up from the test and embrace each other, bursting with excitement at the thought of their new life. “It was about time!” Caitlyn says before letting out a happy cry. 

Her husband then gets down on his knees and kisses Caitlyn’s stomach. Little did they know, more surprises were to come.

Visiting The Doctor

The day after, the pair managed to book an appointment at their local hospital. As they set off for their appointment, the couple discussed names, gender, and soccer teams. 

Caitlyn, who was still reveling in the excitement, thought she was maybe two or three months pregnant. But once the doctor pulled out the ultrasound, the couple could not believe what they were looking at.

Telling The World

Caitlyn took her story to Reddit, where it went viral. Her post garnered hundreds of comments. One user wrote: “So insane! You are proof those ‘didn’t know I was pregnant’ stories are true.

So interesting that you didn’t really seem to feel baby before you knew. I always wonder about that!” But Caitlyn never could have imagined that she was this far along.

A Wild Ride

Caitlyn wrote: “The midwife asked if I felt movement and I told her I hadn’t until the week I found out! It’s like he was waiting for me to figure it out before making himself known! Now I can feel him constantly! Especially when he gives me a kick to the ribs.”

Another user wrote: “What a wild ride! Thanks for sharing your story and CONGRATULATIONS!”

A Growing Family

The ultrasound showed a full-size baby — with his head down, a fully-formed heart, everything! Both Caitlyn and her husband were at a loss for words. The doctors concluded that she was about seven months along. When Caitlyn heard the news, she could not believe it! 

The two left that hospital that day, both speechless, excited, and ready to start their new life together—plus one!

Time Flies

After almost two years of trying, James and Caitlyn had finally done it. Just three months after the good news, Caitlyn delivered a healthy baby boy. 

“It was one of the best experiences of my life,” she happily proclaimed, “I had no morning sickness or cravings. That’s why I didn’t even know I was pregnant. The whole pregnancy just flew by.”

A Beautiful Story

Wow, what a beautiful story! It just goes to show that your wildest dreams can come true at any given time. You can be doing something as simple as going to the toilet, and within a few minutes, your world has changed forever! 

But Caitlyn’s bizarre story isn’t the only one of its kind. In Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, a similar incident took place. 

Elizabeth And Todd

Elizabeth, or Lizzie to her friends and family, and her husband Todd Davidson had been trying to get pregnant for a while. But unlike James and Caitlyn, their little blessing made them wait for three years before finally coming.

Like Caitlyn, Lizzie had tried everything to get pregnant. She’d eaten the right foods, done the correct exercises, and gotten on the needed vitamins to help her conceive. But it never happened. 

Throwing In The Towel

After three years of frantically trying, getting negative results, and trying again, Lizzie and Todd decided to throw in the towel for now.

If the universe weren’t ready to bless them with a baby, they would step back and evaluate their options. But the couple had already set their mind on a third family member. What could they do now?

Filling The Void

Todd suggested a brilliant idea that would fill the void in their hearts. “Let’s adopt a dog for now,” he said. Maybe that would help with the loneliness and baby fever.

As projected, the dog helped the couple acclimate to the reality of their lives. It wasn’t their time to have a kid yet. Or at least they thought.

Back To Normal

Lizzie and Todd returned to their everyday life. But now that they weren’t focused on having a baby, everything in their lives would change.

Todd was away on a business trip when it happened. Lizzie woke up with nausea for the third time that week. She couldn’t explain it and thought maybe a pregnancy test would help settle matters. 

At The Store

“I didn’t think I was pregnant when I went to the store that morning,” she revealed. She’d been so used to negative pregnancy tests that the idea of going down to the store didn’t excite her. 

She even got a bottle of wine to drown out the sorrow after the test read negative. It had been part of her disappointment ritual by now. She didn’t know how wrong she was. 

That’s Weird

Lizzie got home and took the test. ‘That’s weird,’ she thought as she stared at the result. Since she’d bought three tests, she took the remaining two and waited. 

After a few minutes, she turned the tests over, ready to have her world destroyed. She knew it wasn’t healthy to have all these expectations, especially after how the last three years had treated her and Todd, but she couldn’t help herself. Her eyes landed on the results.   

I’m Pregnant!

Lizzie almost fell back, screaming so loudly that her dog, Milo, came sprinting into the bathroom. She hugged him, lifting him to the bathroom counter, “Look, Milo!” she shouted. “I’m pregnant!”

Lizzie stared at the three tests for minutes, her body bubbling with energy. She couldn’t believe what was happening. Little did she know that this was only half the blessing!

Waiting For Him

Lizzie and Milo waited for Todd to return home from his trip for four hours. They spent those three hours dancing to pop songs and eating everything out of the fridge in celebration. 

When Todd came home, he found a house in disarray. At the center sat Lizzie and Milo, Lizzie grinning at him and Milo wagging his tail with energy. What was going on?

A Party

Todd asked his wife what was happening. He walked over to reduce the volume on the tv but turned to find Lizzie grinning before him. 

He meant to talk when she shoved the three tests in his face. “We’re pregnant!” she screamed, and Todd staggered. Heat flushed through him, and he hugged her so tightly. But before they could get over their heads, he suggested visiting the doctor.

Two In The Oven!

Todd and Lizzie visited the doctor first thing in the morning. Throughout the drive, they couldn’t hold in their excitement. But the doctor would bring them tears.

The doctor sat before Todd and Lizzie with a sonogram in his hands. But instead of telling the couple that their child was fine, he said children! Lizzie was pregnant with twins, a surprise that left her and Todd in tears. They couldn’t believe that after waiting for so long, their reward was this great!
