Had a TT on 11/9/13, been 5 weeks and sneezed and felt a pop?

I did have 2 body suits on. Could the stitch have broken?

Pop after sneezing

Hard to know what stitch, if any, was broken. Best to follow-up with your plastic surgeon for an exam.

Suture popped?

It might one of many sutures that broke. I doubt it is of any consequence but your surgeon is the best one to advise you. I recommend mentioning this to them but it is not an emergency.

Possible, but not likely.

The best reassurance will come from a conversation, and if needed a visit, with your surgeon.

All the best.
