  • There is definitely a living baby in there. Whether or not he/she feels pain at that age, I have no idea. Believing he/she has a soul at that age is a personal feeling.

  • Why would you ask? Of course there is a living baby in there...whether or not the baby can feel pain, I dont know. If you dont want it, why not give it to a family that is unable to have children. I have a cousin who's heart aches everyday because she cant have children. I hope you make the right decision. Good Luck, and hang in there.

  • Yes. I 100% believe there is an actual baby in your belly! I read at 5 weeks your baby’s tiny heart has begun to beat.. I'm not going to try to sway you in any direction, but you do have your little baby in there.. I don't know you or your situation, I would just do some research online look at the development of the baby at this stage, maybe that will help more.

    I also found this on a website:
    He's busily growing all his major organs, including the kidneys and liver. His intestines are developing and the appendix is in place. The neural tube, which connects his brain and spinal cord, will close this week.

  • Just think about adoption first. You can give this baby 2 gifts: life and an amazing family.
