I CAN BARELY BELIEVE IT MYSELF!!!

You hear stories about women doing something like freezing their eggs because they have simply not yet met the right guy and, next thing you know, they meet Mr. Right.  Well, I certainly never thought it would be me.  I mean I couldn't get it right the first 36 years.  But, alas,....wait for it...wait for it...

I'M ENGAGED!!!

That's right.  The man I started dating a few weeks before starting the egg freezing process is now my future husband!  I remember the awkward time in the beginning when I decided that I was going to go through with the procedure even though I just started dating this great guy.  I had postponed it too long already.  The tough part was going to be telling him.

Most people have not even heard of egg freezing and I was going to spring this on him less than three weeks after we met!  I think he was a little taken aback at first, but upon reflection, he realized that it was probably good for both of us.

There has been absolutely no pressure or rush from me on getting to this milestone of engagement, nor has he felt the need to hurry up and make a decision.  The whole relationship flowed naturally.  We both do want to have children.  The egg freezing has allowed us to feel that we have a bit more choice and flexibility.

So, it did actually happen to me!  I had just about given up on finding him, but managed to find an amazing, kind, loving life partner!

Keep the faith, ladies :o)

  6. Hello MBM,
    My name is Valerie. I have a website called Eggperience. Would love to interview you if you are willing to come forward for the section What Women Are Saying about egg freezing and fertility. Looks like some time has passed since you made these blog posts. Not sure if things have change or if your journey to motherhood has already started but would love to talk to you.

    Thank you,
    Valerie

  7. This is brilliant, congratulations! I only hope my egg freezing journey is as happy as at the moment your story sounds very similar. I met my current boyfriend just as I was about to start my egg freezing. The process was very stressful, starting with low AMH results.
    It would be great if you followed my story too at www.lifeloveandme.co.uk I'll keep everything crossed for you. Sarah
