Ruling on Planting Fertilized Egg after Passing Away of Husband

A husband and wife fertilized an egg and agreed on planting it in the wife`s womb, but couldn`t do so due to the spread of corona virus pandemic, so the fertilized egg remained stored in fertility clinic at the hospital. Now, the husband has passed away and the wife would like to have the fertilized egg planted in her womb. Is it permissible for her to do so since families of both spouses were aware of that and it was documented by the fertility clinic staff of that hospital?

Conditions that Must be Met in Artificial Insemination

A married woman couldn`t get naturally pregnant due to being old, and her husband objects to performing artificial insemination. While married to that man, she wanted to withdraw eggs from her ovaries, divorce him then marry another and use the latter`s sperms to fertilize those eggs. What drove her to do so is that she may not be able to withdraw eggs to be fertilized by the sperms of her new husband since she may not have any left due to the long time that the divorce and Iddah(waiting period observed by wife after divorce or death of husband) usually take for she is old and likely to experience menopause. Does doing so violate Sharia?
