Welcome to the ehealthforum and I am really glad to help you out.

In women who are pregnant for the first time, baby bump shows between 12 and 16 weeks but in multiparous women ( women who have given birth before), it occurs early and can show a bit early. Your gestational period is just 5 weeks and at 5 weeks, it is less likely for a baby bump to show up. If the growth of baby is normal on ultrasound then there is nothing to worry.

Moreover symptoms in each pregnancy differ and symptoms present in first pregnancy may vary in second pregnancy. However if you are 5 weeks pregnant and have spotting then it needs immediate evaluation.

It can be due to corpus luteum defect in early pregnancy which requires supplementation of progesterone hormone till 12 weeks of pregnancy. You should consult your gynecologist and get it prescribed.

It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.
