i know exactly how you feel! i thought my mom was going to be so mad at me and hate me for not waiting for marriage, she is one who is really against sex before marriage, but she was not mad, she was supportive and told me she was not disappointed in me at all becaus sex is a natural thing. it took me SO long to be up front to her about it, and i am glad i did, i think you should just tell your mom too, i know it sounds like a hard thing to do but you will feel TONS better after telling her, and she will most likely like the fact taht you are being responsible about it and preventing the chances of getting pregnant. if you need any more advice, feel free to IM me,

just to throw this out there...birth control from places like planned parent hood can be expensive. and will be so much cheaper getting it prescribed to you if you have insurance. my friend pays 20-30 dollars a month for her birth control at a clinic, and mine is only 5 dollars a month thru my parents insurance. so if your parents have insurance it is going to save you alot of money.
