Anything different?

Does it get easier with the second delivery after 5 yrs later? My son will be five when my next baby comes. Will still be easier then my first? Or it will be difficult as the first time again?

  • my first labor was 12 1/2 hrs 2nd 3hrs 14 mins..the pain was gradual w my first, and omg i wanted to kill everyone in sight with how much pain i was in w the was painful from the very first contraction..i almost didnt make it long enough to have an epidural. im praying that this labor is actually longer than my 2nd..i prefer the gradual pain then constant!!

  • Sorry, there's only one way to know. :) My philosophy: expect the worst, hope for the best! Good luck!

  • I agree with Katie Crandall. Not everyone is the same. So some people it will get easyer for, and for others it will get worse. It all depends. Good luck mama

  • Every labor is different and there is no way to know. People say second labors are usually shorter, but even that isn't guaranteed. Good luck!
