Hi Tia glad you found the board, we're a bit tucked away.
Baby isn't really formed at 5 weeks. I had a scan at 5+4 and they could see a 1mm foetal pole. It would be about 5mm at the 6+ week stage when they expect a HB to start, then grow about 1mm a day from there.
If your concern is if you are going to see a baby pass that is not going to happen at this stage. That doesn't minimise the emotional side of the loss though, I know it's a baby to you as soon as you see the line on the test.
Hope you are coping ok Flowers

So sorry for your loss Tia.

For what it's worth, the foetus is tiny at 5 weeks, not recognisable as a baby at all, and you wouldn't see anything passing.

Best wishes for the future.
