The process of development begins on the day a woman’s egg is fertilized by a sperm which has penetrated it. The fertilized egg or zygote immediately begins to divide into 2 cells, then 4, then 8, and so on. After a few days the cluster of between 13 and 32 cells leave the fallopian tube and migrate into the uterus. This group of cells is called a blastocyst and the size has increased to hundreds of cells. By the eighth day after conception, the blastocyst attaches to the wall of the uterus by a process called implantation. After implantation till eight weeks the blastocyst is called an embryo. The length of embryo is about 1/100 of an inch at this time. This happens in the first two weeks. Do keep me posted.
Best wishes and regards!
