It's time for me to look into purchasing a life insurance policy.

I was married about a year and a half ago, and my wife and I are expecting our first child in a little less than a month. So you can imagine I've got my mind on an insurance policy in the event of my death or serious injury; they would need to be taken care of.
Can someone give me some research pointers? What's a good basic policy I can get now and perhaps augment in the future? And what pitfalls should I avoid? (Difficulty level: I'm an American living and working in Japan. My wife is currently unemployed, natch because of the pregnancy, and likely won't be working for a year or so.)
