How does the fetus look if you were 5weeks pregnant?

At five weeks the baby to be is still an embryo, it will not become a fetus until the end of the first trimester. At five weeks the embryo is still masses of cells that are forming body parts. There are groups that will become the heart and circulatory system, the heart is beating and blood cells are beginning to flow. The nervous system (brain and spinal cord) are forming and CSF will soon be flowing. There are buds forming that will become arms, legs, hands and feet. While the embryo bares little resemblance to the baby it will be, the growth over the last five weeks is amazing.

I am not sure how early you mean right away, but about five weeks is the earliest they can tell through an ultrasound. But at only five weeks a heartbeat will not be detected yet, just an embryo and the thickening of the uterine lining.
