No, there are no embryos in the eggs yet until after they're laid and start to develop. And even if there were the dose of radiation from an X-ray is quite small so it's not enough to be worrisome. Of course you don't want to get more radiation than needed in any case but pregnant cats and dogs are x-rayed all the time to count babies, make sure all of them are out after partruition, and identify problems.
