your baby wouldnt need a visa...you would do a CBRA (consular report of birth abroad). Your baby would be a US citizen and be able to get a US passport....so no visa required.

Pretty much. My daughter was born here in Brazil, so we went to the American consulate in Rio and got a CBRA for her. Now she`s considered an US Citizen and doesn`t need a visa, which means she could go to the US with her dad while I`m still here (that`s not gonna happen, though. =P)

because it has happened before that the child was not the husband or fiancee's. In some cases they still request DNA testing (they cant force it). I dont think it is any harder for someone that is pregnant to pass the interview than someone that isnt. The consulate will just want proof that you were together during the conception of the baby....so that is why boarding passes and copies of passport stamps become important. Dont get her your soon to be wife pregnant just to "speed" things along...in most cases that isnt a reason to speed it along.

Reporting the birth abroad is extra steps and your wife/fiancee will have to apply at the embassy for that. It is extra steps and could cause delays. Check out the process here: http://manila.usembassy.gov/wwwha003.html
