Awkward..

I'm 11 and in 6th grade, and I started my period a few days ago. For 2 or 3 days, I've told my mom that my stomach hurts, and for once, she believes me. She then said that maybe I was getting my period. I just shrug, but I know that I'm getting it. I use toilet paper so my underwear isn't ruined, but a few leaks come every now and then. I know she'll wash them out like she does with discharges, but I don't know how to tell her. Any advice?
