Week 1 - Fertilization and cleavage
1. The glycoprotein coat surrounding the secondary oocyte 
2. The glycoprotein coat mentioned above along with follicular cells 
3. Fertilized eggs should travel through the ______ before reaching the uterus 
4. This occurs if the fertilized egg fails to travel through #3. 
5. The fusion of the male and female pronuclei forms this: 
6. Over the next three days, #5 divides into a 12-16 cell mass known as this: 
7. The process where the zona pellucida breaks down in the uterus 
8. The embryo is called this after a cavity forms in #6 
9. The cavity is known as: 
10. The outer cell mass and precursor to the placenta 
11. The inner cell mass 
Week 2 - Implantation
12. Formed from the outer trophoblast, this mass invades endometrium to supply nutrients 
13. The non-invasive part is the: 
14. #11 divides into two parts (which form the bilaminar embryonic disc). The outer part, adjacent to #13 is:
