The fertilized egg (seedling) Is now actively transported through the fallopian tube to the uterus, by encouraging small cilia in the fallopian tube with wavy movements. In the womb, the embryo can then settle.

Still on the way to the implantation of the new cell begins to divide, the newly formed Cells divide again and so it goes on. In their cores all cells contain completely identical genetic material (stem Cells).

About on the 4th day after fertilization is the seedling from 32 to 64 cells and is blastocyst called. The cells begin to specialize. At that time, the blastocyst reaches its destination: the uterus. Here they penetrate the lining of the uterus and is already a few days later embedded completely in this.

The process of adhering to full integration into the lining is called implantation.
