Hi! This is a great place! I have never heard of eggs actually changing shape so sorry no help from me on that one. Good luck on your hatch!

Your eggs themselves shouldn't change shape but it is normal for the shadows in side to enlarge. As for them getting heavier thats not right. They should be getting lighter due to water loss as the embryo grows.

I would be worried that they are going off. Keep smelling them to make sure as exploding eggs are not pleasant.
