If the embryo is still moving, chances are you're seeing a ring of vascularization, not a blood ring. If they embryo stops developing, it will also not be moving and the veins will break down.

OMG I have the exact same issue going on! 3 of mine have that thick red ring of vascularization and the rest is barely visible...but I did see one embryo move in there too! Please leave your baby in the incubator; if the embryo moved, s/he's alive! You can always pull the egg later if need be, but we can't undo a throw-away. I am letting mine be even though I have very low hopes for the other two ring ones. Also I have 3 much-more-developed babies so it's strange. Sending love and chickie positive thoughts! <3
