Science fiction about eusocial humans?

Since a woman produces about half a million eggs, it's possible to envision a scenario where modern reproductive technology leads to a eusocial society like that of ants. One dominant woman would force all of her relatives to carry her fertilized eggs to term. Then she'd force the resulting daughters to do the same thing once they had matured. With egg freezing, she could keep doing this for decades, eventually resulting in thousands of human children of one biological mother. Has any science fiction been written along these lines?
