I'm really loving the book "Growing up with two languages" by Una Cunningham-Andersson and Staffan Andersson. They are raising their four kids bilingual Swedish/English. While some of the studies they've talked about are disheartening, they do have some comments that are comforting. Like (paraphrasing here), "even imperfect input is helpful."

Actually you might want to pick it up before that. Good sized chunks talk about talking about bilingualism before the child(ren) even arrive.
