Life: In The Making… Summary and Picture

I showed everyone this picture in the first post of this mini series.

Life As We Know It.

I also mentioned that I hoped everyone would know what it was by the end of this.

If you didn’t guess, it’s an embryo! In fact it’s a human when they are only 16-cells big (16-cell stage embryo).

The thing that the embryo is sitting on. That’s the end of a needle, or a pin. It’s absolutely tiny, and we were all that big once!

Moving on.

Embryology is not a hugely wordy topic, and is probably best visualised. I did some digging and found a nice video on youtube that maps a humans journey through pregnancy. Watch if you are so minded:


I’m probably going to do a couple of aside posts on babies, and maybe an extra evolution and DNA post in.
