I'm 41, 42 in Sept. My question is would it be worth freezing my eggs or has that boat sailed.

To have a good chance of a live birth with frozen eggs, you need to store quite a few. The reason for this is not all eggs will survive the freeze-thaw process.  At your age the number and quality might be reduced.  I would suggest that you have a  test of your ovarian reserve and then a consultation with a Fertility Consultant who would be able to advise you if freezing your eggs is worthwhile.
