I've been with my fiance for almost 5 years. I'm currently pregnant. His birthday is in 4 days, and he's turning 23. I'm low on cash and live in a small town (the closest city is 2 hrs away), but I can't travel far because I'm due any day now. What do I do?

You could make him a card, tell him, "Happy Birthday," and give him a kiss and a hug. You said that you're low on cash, live in a small town, and cannot travel because you're pregnant. He should know these things, too. And he should know what's more important, and be grown-up enough to understand.
Put your feet up, and try not to stress about it. If you're low on cash and about to have a baby, you don't need to spend what you DO have on your fiance -- save it for the baby. Good luck!
The best gift is on its way, the new baby! No trinket how much it cost could compare to that! A kiss and a hug and sharing a nice meal together (whatever it is) is all that's required. Don't feel bad about it....a lot of us grown ups are not doing for each other with the economy the way it is, just being with those you love and who love you is what matters most. Enjoy the new baby and congratulations!
Okay, I guess I've become old fashioned in my old age. Perhaps you could take him to the courthouse and actually tie the knot and place his hand on your baby belly during the ceremony because what better gift could you possibly give than a child and commitment? :-)
I have to vote with the rest who have posted here. You're already giving him a beautiful child. I don't know what date you've set, but you've also promised to spend the rest of your life with him. Those two are already wonderful, priceless gifts. However, if you still feel you "should" give him something and can put words together. Write a poem or other heartfelt sentiment.
Express all the love and joy you feel when you're with him. Recount how you felt when you met. (My hubby loves hearing that story from me, over and over, and we've been together 13 years!) If you have "special" stationery or something. Use it for this purpose. My first Christmas with my first husband, I literally had not a penny. I took plain paper and made coupons promising hugs, kisses, back rubs, etc, on presentation of the coupon. He loved it.
