Jennette McCurdy is opening up about the complicated decision to freeze her eggs.

On the latest episode of her Lemonada Media podcast, HARD FEELINGS, the podcaster, 31, talked about making the decision to freeze her eggs, despite noting, "I do not feel in any way shape or form like I want kids."

"I cannot imagine a world in which someday I want kids," she continued, adding, “I am also open to my mind changing."

"I have changed a lot as a person in my years so far and I hope to continue changing. What I don’t want to happen is for me to turn 40 and realize, ‘F–k, I want kids now,’ and I don’t have enough eggs to make it happen," she explained.

The former Nickelodeon actress admitted that after getting information at an informational appointment, she was "horrified."

"I’m hearing my body is going to look and feel like I’m pregnant. I am going to have difficulties and emotionality, mood swings, and hormonal charges twenty times that of a regular period," she said, explaining it was a lot when "no part of me feels motivated."

"No part of me feels motivated to freeze my eggs when I don’t think I want to be a mom, but what if someday I change my mind?" she said.

"I am trying to bet on my future self wanting a thing that my current self can’t imagine wanting, versus just not doing it and risking that someday I might want it and not be able to do it then – and the regret. I am trying to weigh these options and it's quite complex."

"I was feeling confronted with aging and who I am now versus who I might be someday and how much I don’t know about my future self. I was just confronted with all these life realities that, frankly, I didn’t feel prepared for – and I still don’t.”

Last year, McCurdy told The New York Times she is looking forward to the future and finding her own path after sharing her story in her memoir, I'm Glad My Mom Died.

"I think things should feel natural," she explained. "So much of my life was about forcing or pushing things. So when something feels like it's working, I'll let that be, and anything else can fall by the wayside."
