It sounds as though your mom is in a stage of 'bargaining', which is often part of the process of dealing with loss.
And what has she lost? Her straight son and the fantasy of his having a wife, her having grandchildren and everything else that goes along with it. The bargaining is implied in her somehow trying to make a 'deal' - hoping that maybe, if you have a relationship with a girl, you'll become straight.
As strange as it may sound to you, I can understand where she's coming from. Give her space and time to deal with your being gay. She is trying.
