Don't be miserable
Just my personal opinion, if you really don't want to have kids, dont!!! It sounds like you already have a lot on your plate and though it would be nice to make your mom happy throwing a kid into that mix sounds like it would be a disaster. It's hard to disappoint parents, your mom sounds pretty adamant, but dont sacrifice your own self to please others - if you feel a kid would be too much stress, you're right, it would be. Maybe some day
You have fur kids right now, maybe your mom can appreciate them<3
