I actually didn't wait to tell immediate family. I did want to wait to tell extended family, but when I got pregnant with Aaron it was close to Rosh Hashana and when I got to the Yom Kippur post-fast meal at my grandma's everyone suddenly knew because my lovely family told everyone. I was actually pretty pissed
Now, I know some people wait three months before telling. That's originally what I wanted to do. I don't know if there's a religious reason for that, but the first three months are really the risky ones and in case, G-d forbid, something had gone wrong, I would've liked todeal with it without the world knowing, KWIM?
Now, even if your mom knows when your period is supposed to come, does she have to know if it came or not? You could not touch that subject and if she asks directly well, you could downright lie
or you could just tell her that you will let her know when it happens.
