Between career gains, friendships and dating, single women in their 40s often realize they forgot something important: to have children! If you want kids, don't put this time-sensitive issue on the bottom of your to-do list.
After suffering a crushing breakup at age 34, Suzanne worried that she might not meet someone else in time to have kids. Though she never mentioned wanting to have a family with her dates, she couldn't help sizing up every man for his fatherhood potential. If she felt under that much pressure, she reasoned, her dates could sense it too. But as soon as she stashed away 31 eggs in the freezer to give herself more time to find a partner, she felt her anxiety float away.
Mother Nature's biological clock stops for no one, not even wannabe grandparents. And that's why, instead of nagging their daughters about why they have not settled down and started pumping out babies, today's moms and dads are helping to foot the bill to freeze their eggs.
