DIY "OB care": Do it yourself OB care becomes difficult in the face of an imminent delivery of the child given that is an area that is hard to self "manipulate. " At 13 weeks, you should be in the care of an OB GYN for prenatal purposes. While you are there at the OB MD's office a more accurate assessment of the baby's heart beat and your pelvic pain can be done.
