she can hear you and everything around you. she will recognize your voice when she's born, and if daddy talks to her enough, then she'll recognize his voice too. my dh talked to our son more than i did (normally after work i would just pass out on the couch, lol. working with kids while pregnant does that to you) and then my dh would come home and talk to him. when he was born, he prefered daddy over me, because he knew daddy's voice very well. we were at his 1 week appt, and the doctors had to measure him. he cried, of course, cuz he was naked and had all these strangers holding him, and all my dh had to say was "it's ok Dakota, daddy's right here", my DS stopped and looked right at him. the doctors said they were amazed, cuz they'd never seen that happen before.
