I am American, how do I live in Scotland with my Scottish husband and not yet born baby?

Asked 12 months ago - Haines City, FL

My husband is Scottish (from Scotland) we are both currently living in the U.S. I am currently sponsoring him to live in the USA.
I am an American Citizen.
We would like to relocate to Scotland and live with his parents who are retired, until he finds a job.
What forms do we need and is the visa process lengthy? Does he need to find a job first?
When we have the baby, does she automatically get dual citizenship?
