yes.  just last week she told me to get the depro shot behind my hubby's back because my husband doesn't want me to get on BC -- he wants to have another baby.  she told me to go behind his back and he'd be none the wiser.  My mom usually has good advice, but she's a my body my choice kinda gal.  love her to death, but not taking her advice on that one!

 yikes...

I had one depo shot... Just one and was infertile for over two years. We went on to have 7 more kids after that.  Depo is awful!

My mom has had 3 husbands and is now on her second long term boyfriend...I would never take relationship advice from her.

When I was in high school she did and I always thought it was terrible but looking back now she was always right

I would laugh right in my mother's face if she ever tried to offer relationship advice.

I love the woman but she's been married and divorced four times. I've keep a successful marriage by just not doing what mom did.

really???  omigosh you're very lucky I have a friend who suffers with secondary infertility.  I had the shot between my boys but hated it, definitely not getting it ever again now!
