Gaby Rodriguez would worry whenever anyone asked to touch her baby bump.Gaby spent her entire senior year doing a project on what it is like to become a teen mom, and how it affects other people's perceptions of you.

It wasn't because she felt shy or embarrassed. It was because the bulge -- fashioned from wire mesh and cotton quilt batting -- didn't actually contain a baby.
