Hi Ladies!

My name is Brittany and I'm 23 years old. I'm married to a wonderful man named Richard and we've been married for 4 years this February. We have a 3 year old son named Elijah he was born on April 21, 2008 at 23 weeks. His due date was August 11, 2008. Everything is fine with him :) he's a healthy normal 3 year old. In October 17, 2008 I found out I was pregnant again but unfortunately I miscarried at 7 weeks on November 11, 2008. The day of my miscarriage I went to see my OB/GYN and decided to get the Depo shot which I believe really messed my body up. I only got the shot once but I haven't gotten pregnant again after that. We also haven't haven't been actively trying either but we never use protection so I'm a little worried that something might be wrong with me or DH. We decided this would be our month to start trying since it's a new year :).

Hi Brittany, welcome to the board. I'm so sorry about your miscarriage :( Are you going to do anything to be more active with TTC, like using ovulation predictor kits or tracking ovulation?
