It looks like your duckling is about 2weeks into incubation. Congrats! And hope you wanted a baby

Yep. Literally what you are seeing is the air sack, the white, and the circulatory system forming inside the shell. If you look from the side you should also be able to see the yolk and a little dark shadow which will eventually start to look more like a duckling. If you ever see a ring of blood, that's a shell death. It'll look like a red halo. Congratulations and I hope it hatches well.
