    This egg appears to have 2 embryos right next to each other. But what's wierd is that the egg is not large, nor does it have 2 yolks. I don't know what's going on so if anyone knows please help!! Is it twins, or is it deformed?

    Give it time. Ever seen one of the older style ultrasound images of a human baby? Sometimes it looks like random blobs, but it's b/c different parts of the baby are closer to the US head. You might see just the head and an arm, based on where the child was swimming at the time. This may be what you are seeing. It looks good and healthy. Are you viewing with the flashlight shining down through the air cello? That usually gives the clearest images. Also helpful when posting images to give day of development.
