Is this true?

I heard that giving birth to your second baby is always easier than your first. Just curious...

  • Wasn't in my case. Nor in my mothers or MILs case. However, my mothers third was a breeze she says.

  • The labor ws easier as I knew more of what to expect but no...no givigng birth was'nt any easier ...In fact it may have been a bit harder as she weighed more than a lb more than her older sister did...

  • Not always, but quite often. The muscles are more lax, letting baby come out more easily, and you already know how to push. However, every pregnancy is different, so it could end up being a lot harder! Good luck!

  • Well, it should be for me since I'm having another c-section. I went through 16 hours of grueling painful labor with the first now I won't have to go through that again.
