I have been looking at my octopus eggs and have just lately seen red dots in the middle of some of them. What does this mean? Does it mean they are about to hatch?

Pictures would help but it could mean that the baby octos are developing inside and that maybe their chromatophores are already developed so I guess its possible that they might hatch soon :)
