  8. Trophoblast

A trophoblast is a cell which comes together with other trophoblasts to form a blastocyst’s outer layer. This will supply the embryo with nutrients and will eventually become a large part of the placenta. Trophoblasts are created in the first stage of pregnancy, within the first three days; they’re the first cells which differentiate from a fertilized egg.
