First of all, take comfort in the fact that feeling alone is not an uncommon way to feel when finding out your expecting. I felt the same way too for a long time. as crazy as it sounds, groups/communities like this one are extremely helpful and even comforting at times of loneliness and confusion. Second of all, take comfort in the simple fact that your life just got so much better :) I was so nervous and unsure when I found out I was pregnant and now I'm the proudest momma ever of a beautiful 10 month old little girl and I honestly can't remember what I was living for before her. Lastly, telling your mom isn't something you should feel like you need to rush. I mean, i'd probably do it before your water breaks but until you are completely secure and comfortable with your news you have every right to just keep it to yourself. I will say that telling your loved ones, mom especially, is a hug weight lifted off your chest and more often then not, they end up being super excited!
Keep your head up and good luck!
