My friend's sister just got pregnant on Depo Provera because she got her shot a little bit late so I guess she ovulated. I'm not sure whether it affects the baby though.

Just like any other birth control Depo can and does fail. The only way to totally avoid pregnancy it so avoid sex(and sexual acts) totally.
As for it effecting the baby that is something you will have to talk to your doctor about. I do know a couple of women who got their shots on time but still wound up gettting pregnant. One woman had been on the shot for over a year and then found out she was pregnant. Her daughter is 9 yrs old. The other woman I know started the shots right before she married her dh. Well she went to go in for a second or third shot and she found out she was pregnant. After that baby was born she decided to get back on the shot because she felt it was a fluke that it failed the first time. Well about the time for the fifth or sixth shot she found out yet again she was pregnant. That time it was with twins. She gave up on that form of birth control after that and had her tubes tied. So far she hasnt had anymore surprises like that.
