You could do you or your husband, however, I am superstitious. I would hesitate to do it until you had a healthy child all born and everything. That's probably because I know too many people who had problems getting and/or staying pregnant and delivering a healthy child.

Fair enough. And not bad advice, rad. :) Personally I realize that in the unlikely case we don't succeed at having kids I'll almost certainly go to grad school. If neither happens we will not begrudge the college funds to our nieces and nephews.

But we're already fully funding our Roths, DH's 401k, have an emergency fund in I-bonds, and have other investments. So I'm ready to add 529 plans to my portfolio.
