5 Weeks Pregnant With Unsupportive Family

I just told my Mum that im pregnant. She seemed fine with it in the beginning but later that night she was screaming at me to abort it. I said no as i do not believe in abortion unless in exceptional circumstances. My boyfriend, the father of the baby, lives in the US and I in the UK. We see each other every 6 weeks or so and i now plan to apply for a visa to live with him now that we are having a baby. He is very happy at the news, as am I. My Mum believes i simply will not get one. But as soon as we found out about the pregnancy we found out all the information we needed. Anyway my Mum seems to think that im going to have the baby here and constantly tells me she doesn't want it and that ive ruined my life and to abort it. It is putting incredible stress on me which i don't need right now. My boyfriends family are very happy and supportive and are looking forward to me going back there. Any ideas on how to deal with stress or make things easier for my mum? Thankyou.
