Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

Germinal Period: 1st 2 weeks of pregnancy. Zygote forms moves down the fallopian tubes. It then becomes a blastocyst and implants in the wall of the uterus.

Embryonic Period: Rapid cell division. The germ layers form. The blastocyst is now considered an embryo.

Fetal Period: Large increase in size. Maturation of body organs and systems.


Extra-embryonic membranes:

Yolk sac: consists of the endoderm and splanchnic mesoderm

Amnion: consists of the ectoderm and somatic mesoderm

The Chorio-Allantoic Membrane: consists of the ectoderm and somatic mesoderm

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.

Tutor went the extra mile to help me with this essay. Citations were a bit shaky but I appreciated how well he handled APA styles and how ok he was to change them even though I didnt specify. Got a B+ which is believable and acceptable.
