Pending Mr Right’s arrival, I had my eggs frozen. But will putting a baby on hold be worth it?
At age 34, Im having a panic attack. I might be biologically ready for procreation past ready, even but, emotionally, Im committed to my career, not to The One. Im still asking, which One? I exist in that 30 is the new 20 generation: perfection-seeking, commitment-phobic and no way near ready. But I need to insure against finding myself in a Tracey Emin moment, choked by my childlessness at 40. Twenty-three per cent of women born in 1973 wont have had children by the time they hit 45. By which time it might be too late. I need to put my fertility on ice, before it runs out on me. So Im having my eggs frozen.
