Carnegie Stage Table
|1||1 (week 1)||fertilized oocyte, zygote, pronuclei|
|2||2 - 3||morula cell division with reduction in cytoplasmic volume, blastocyst formation of inner and outer cell mass|
|3||4 - 5||loss of zona pellucida, free blastocyst|
|4||5 - 6||attaching blastocyst|
Subsequently, question is, what are the three stages of embryonic development? There are three stages of prenatal development—germinal, embryonic, and fetal. Prenatal development is also organized into trimesters: the first trimester ends with the end of the embryonic stage, the second trimester ends at week 20, and the third trimester ends at birth.
what are the stages of early embryonic development?
The germinal stage refers to the time from fertilization through the development of the early embryo until implantation is completed in the uterus. The germinal stage takes around 10 days. During this stage, the zygote begins to divide, in a process called cleavage.
What is meant by embryonic development?
Embryonic development also embryogenesis is the process by which the embryo forms and develops. Embryonic development starts with the fertilization of the egg cell (ovum) by a sperm cell, (spermatozoon). Once fertilized, the ovum is referred to as a zygote, a single diploid cell.
