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.
I we going to suggest this. It does away with the immediate reactions so you don't have to hear that and your mom won't be there to show her disapproval.
