    zygote : sperm+egg

    then it divides
    morula -> goes to uterine wall -> becomes a blastula-> becomes a gastula
    *basically these are just names for the zygote @ different stages.

    first division in 32 hours, 2nd in 60 hours (4cells), 3rd in 72 hours (8)
    by the 4th day it enters uterine wall. and you get 3 germ layers, meso/endo/ecto.

    bastocyst has 3 types of cells, that impregnate the endometrium and thats where you get vasculation of the embryo from.

    i just reviewed this a few days ago while studying, someone correct me if i'm wrong.

    I think blastocyst is the last stage before the zygote actually becomes an embryo.
