Cis or trans? That's what matters.

well i see where you were getting at with the placenta, but i forgot to put in the question from outside the body, like how does it travel to the cell in a egg from outside the body

thanks 4 your help btw!

If the zygote is not from a placental mammal, then it is the egg yolk that supplies the nutrients to the fertilized egg.
But actually nutrients for the zygote is all contained in the fertilized egg cell till the blastocyst stage (the cell is just being divided into individual cells - DNA duplication and cytokinesis). Upon gastrulation, then development needs to have external nutrients.

oh no i am talking about a placental animal, but it (food and oxygen) would pass through (from outside the body) to reach a cell in a egg. the process it goes to. like for example (this is totally false btw):

we swallow oxygen through our mouths it travels down our esophagus and it reahes the heart.. something like that but i have no idea how the respitory system works exactly so this is the reason i am here :P

you breath oxygen, it goes into your blood in lungs, circulates in blood and then is exchanged with the fetus' blood at placenta.
Similarly for food.
