4. The Magnifying Glass

The emotional impact of egg freezing hits this week thanks to a counselling session that forces me to go deep into how I really feel about putting myself through this process. Brace yourself, there are tears as the therapist and I discuss past relationships, and the fact that freezing doesn’t guarantee a baby down the line. But in good news, my period finally arrives, which prompts an excited call to the fertility clinic.
