Sweating and Confused

Hello! So it’s my first time incubating a chameleon egg (which quickly turned to two) and I noticed my ambanja egg started sweating. This started 2 days ago, but they were tiny beads so I thought they were condensation beads. (Note: there is no sign of condensation in the container it came in, and the container I put it in) the following day I went to take a peek and noticed that it had created a huge bead of liquid to which I ended up checking the lid to see if it’s dripping, and it was dry. Today I ended up checking it and it is literally sweating. It was laid Dec 1 and I believe it’s wayyy too early to make its appearance, but I’m not sure what else it could be. Please note that the temp inside the container is 73, and humidity is also 73-75. If anyone can give me insight or advice, I will be forever grateful! I’m also attaching pics which should be in order!

Does the sweating egg look like it's slightly shrinking too?
It is early for sure. Could your thermometer be off ?

Suggestion...don't keep taking the lid off ...you'll mess up the stable environment in the container and may make the egg not hatch.

It shrunk, but it’s not even that noticeable to be honest. I really did think at first maybe it was the humidity, but the other egg is not affected at all. I’ll attach a pic of the thermometer :)

Hi I have only breed bearded dragons. But digital probes would be better more accurate imo as @saltydog says don't keep opening the lid . I kept my dragon eggs in clear tubs so no need to open lids for viewing
