Telling the family

Hi, everyone! I just found out I am pregnant again at 42! I have three wonderful children, and I am so happy that we will have a fourth. Anyway, I wanted to say that I am very nervous about telling my family. I am pretty sure that my mom will be happy for us. But my MIL has already mentioned to us that she believes that people should only have as many children as they can afford to send to college. (And if that is the case, then we probably shouldn't have had any! Have you seen the cost of college these days?) I think that is a strange way to decide the size of your family!
So I am pretty worried about her reaction. She only had one child, and I don't think she has any idea what it is like to have a larger family. I am telling the family on Thanksgiving, so wish me luck.
Have any of you had negative responses to your pregnancy from family. How did you deal with it?
