  • Implantation is an event that occurs early in pregnancy in which the embryo adheres to the wall of uterus. At this stage of prenatal development, the embryo is a blastocyst. It is by this adhesion that the fetus receives the oxygen and the nutrients from the mother to be able to grow.

  • Implantation is the stage when the fertilized egg attaches into the uterine lining. Some women have spotting from this event, which might be why you're hearing that term a lot.
