Generally it does go faster, but complications can make it slower (like if baby is in wrong position.

My labours:

First- 4 and a half hours

Second- 2 and a half hours

Third- 1 and a half hours

Fourth- 1 hour and 20 minutes

Althought they are faster I wouldn't say easier. My third I would definitely say was the worst. The contractions were more painful, closer together and it was very intense.

But it's different for everyone. So although you may expect it to be faster I recommend you don't expect it to be easier.

Yes it is faster!! With my eldest i was in labour for 4 hours, with my second i was in labour for 3 hours and with my youngest it was only 2 hours! As for being easier, i don't know, each of my labours we're completely different so i honestly can't say! Good luck with everything!

Wow i wish my first was that easy, but yes my second was way easier. I pushed 5 maybe 6 times with my 2nd and boom he was here.
