When one of the millions of sperm joins the egg to combine DNA and form a Zygote is called? Fertilization
Fertilization usually takes place in the? Fallopian tubes
A change or maturation of the sperm that takes place as it is swimming through the uterus and fallopian tubes is called? Capacitation
During fertilization the acrosome becomes more? Fragile
Since the acrosome is more fragile this allows the acrosome to burst and do what to the egg? Digest the egg membrane

Middle dermis, bone, cartilage, muscle, kidneys, blood are all formed in this layer? Mesoderm
Inner GI mucosa, respiratory mucosa, liver, thyroid and pancreas are all formed in this layer? Endoderm
These membranes are distinguished from the embryo at 20 days what are they called? Embryonic membranes
This sac gives rise to the first blood cells and sex stem cells what is it called? Yolk sac
The yolk sac later becomes part of the what? Umbilical cord
The thin membrane that surrounds the embryo is called? Amnion
The amnion contains a fluid called what? Amniotic fluid
The amniotic fluid contains what? Urine, sloughed off cells
Sampling of amniotic fluid is called? Amniocentesis
What is the trophoblast called as it develops? Chorion
The projections from the chorion into the endometrium that become the fetal part of the placenta are called? Chorionic Villi

At what week are the organ systems established in the embryo? 8 weeks
Fetal growth occurs during what weeks? 9-40th
The maternal and fetal tissue structure that separates fetal and maternal blood is called? The placenta
The placenta is formed by how many weeks? 12
What size is the placenta? 7 inch and flat
The placenta produces hormones to maintain pregnancy what hormones are these? Human chorionic gonadotropin
hCG is excreted in urine for what type of test results? Pregnancy tests
