I think it's wise for you to wait, Payge. Better that she's a bit older. I don't think it's wise to breed a cat in her first season, anyway.
Just give her lots of loving attention. That helps immensely. When she rolls around, just pet her tummy and her back. It will calm her down. She's not in pain, but nervous, and doesn't know what's wrong. As soon as she mates, she'll smack or hiss at the male! It's nature's way.
We took in a stray who was quite young, so young that we would naver have guessed she was pregnant. She got bigger and bigger, and finally had 6 kittens on her own and one dead kitten by caesarian section. Few lived . I think she was just too young. That was a huge litter!
My guess is that you'll be "grandmother" to 3 or 4, which is much better for mommy and babies.
