2. Cleavage

  • Begins ~ 12 hours post-fertilization

  • Zygote divides into 2 cells (mitosis)

  • 46 chromosomes in zygote = 46 chromosomes in both daughter cells

  • 2 cell into 4 cell stage (24 – 36 hours)

  • 4 cell into 8 cell stage (36 – 72 hours)

  • 16 cell stage -- Morula

Morula

3. Morula

  • ~ 16 cell stage

  • Develops ~ 72 hours (3 days) from fertilization

  • Morula enters the uterus ~ after 3 days in oviduct

72 hours post-

entering uterus

4. Blastocyst

  • Morula, once entering the uterine cavity, floats freely

  • Morula begins to accumulate fluid and forms a cavity between its cells

  • Once cavity appears, it is now called a

    blastocyst.

4. Blastocyst

  • Blastocyst has fluid-filled inner cavity

  • Evolves from morula on day 5


Day 6 l.jpg

Day 6

  • Three events happen


Implantation l.jpg

Implantation


Two distinct cell types l.jpg

Two Distinct Cell Types

Inner cell mass

trophoblasts


Two distinct cell types18 l.jpg

Two Distinct Cell Types

  • Trophoblasts – will form the invading placenta

  • Inner cell mass cells – will form the embryo


Hcg is produced l.jpg

hCG is produced

  • hCG is human chorionic gonadotropin

  • It is produced by the trophoblasts starting on day 6

  • hCG is a hormone

  • hCG causes endometrium of uterus to grow and proliferate

  • hCG prevents the menstrual cycle from occuring

  • This is why a female misses her periods when she is pregnant


Week 2 l.jpg

Week 2

  • Implantation continues

  • Erosion of maternal blood

    vessels

  • Complete emersion into

    endometrium of uterus


Weeks 3 4 l.jpg

Weeks 3-4

  • Development of CV and nervous systems


Weeks 5 8 l.jpg

Weeks 5-8

  • Embryo will develop all structures that an adult has by the end of week 8


Embryo fetus l.jpg

Embryo/Fetus

  • Embryonic period is weeks 1-8

  • Fetal period begins on week 9 and goes until birth at 38 weeks.

  • Embryonic period is characterized by development of structures (organs).

  • Fetal period is characterized by growth of those structures.
