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...


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)
