I would have some pregnancy announcements printed up and I would mail them to all of your family members instead of going through your mother to have her spread the word, since that obviously isn't going to work out well.
Have someone take a picture of you holding a sign with the due date written on it or something cute. Show them how happy you are and how wanted this child is by your happiness. Dont let your mother ruin this special time with her insecurities.
There is absolutely no reason to hide and no reason to let your mother force you to hide by not telling your family members.
Do EVERYTHING you would have done, had this been a "traditional" pregnancy.
