I know exactly how you feel. My father-in-law's response to my husband telling him the news was, "Geez, Joe. What the hell were you thinking!?!" Not exactly a warm welcome. My mom was the ONLY person happy for us to be expecting #4, then she died when I was almost 30 weeks pg.

It's difficult at times, but it's our life, not theirs. Honestly, I could care less what they think about it anymore. All of our children are a blessing to us, and I could not imagine our life without any one of them. I'm sad for my kids that they don't have my mom in their life. She was absolutely the best Grandma. But they are loved dearly by their parents and their aunts and uncles.
