The average number of embryos in pregnant Peromyscus leucopus (a) and a box plot of the log mean copy number/pg DNA (MCN) of Babesia microti in embryos (b) in different stage of embryo development. Significantly fewer embryos were collected in Week 1 than in Week 3 (P = 0.0360). Parasitemia was significantly lower in Week 3 embryos compared to Week 1 and 2 (P < 0.0003 and P = 0.0022, respectively). Solid lines denote median values while dashed lines denote the means, different letters denote significant differences
