Question 1

Question
Which of these is a correct description of a fertilised egg at 3 weeks?
Answer
  • The fertilised egg is shrinking rapidly. It is far too small to be seen with a microscope. It is 2.5 cells in the shape of a person.
  • The fertilised egg is dividing rapidly. It is too small to be seen without a microscope. It is just a small ball of cells.
  • The ball of cells is now the shape and consistency of a horseshoe.

Question 2

Question
Which is the correct description of a 6-week old embryo?
Answer
  • The ball of cells now looks like a tadpole. There is a 'head end' and a 'tail end' and a bulge where the heart is forming.
  • It is still a ball, but there are lumps appearing where the eyes and limbs are going to be.
  • It has flattened and is morphing into a baby. This is because the placenta is magical and can control the shape of the embryo.

Question 3

Question
What is a foetus like at 8 weeks?

Answer
  • It is still the same as at 12 weeks.
  • The mother can feel it moving but her pregnancy is still not noticeable. Its heart can be heard beating.
