@climbingwife - congrats on the new gig! When you get that first paycheck, treat yoself!
@MissKittyDanger - DH comes to the major appts (first, ultrasounds, anything about negative test results, etc.).
@lyndausvi - I really hope your H gets the Food Network show. That would be so awesome!
@mrsconn23 - if someone just handed me $50K "with no strings", I would first want to really know if there were no strings because just...why? But then I'd put $10K into babybelle's/futurebelle's college account, prepay for a year of daycare for the two of them and then, with the $1.50 leftover, I'd buy a candybar at the grocery store checkout and cry that this is my life now.
If she reports to you, I would let her go home for the day.
If not, and your work schedules allow, I would take her out to lunch or coffee. Don't bring up anything family/baby/child/sibling/anything related. Literally talk about trees or anything far away from the subject until SHE brings it up.

Full disclosure, when I needed a second round of stuff for babybelle (around 1 year), I created a Target registry as if I were having another child and just used it for the completion discount on all the new shit I needed. #noshame
ETA: I have also created a faux wedding registry when I needed a bunch of housewares from Macy's. Also no shame.

I also like the idea of PP's doing a book
