Is it true that the 2nd baby does not hurt as much as the first?

i want to have my baby with out any drugs. i got very close to doing it last time with my first one. but someone messed me up(stupid nurse could not wait a sec) and i could not do it natural. im thinking about trying again. someone told me that i could cuz the 2nd one is a little bit easier and does not hurt as bad.
is this true? was your 2nd not as bad?

  • the only thing that was easier for me was I was only 8 hours in labor with this one and 18 with the other one the pain is still the same, and it don't matter if it's your 1st or 5th each pregnancy is different what helped me is I used to watch that baby show on TLC it was on in the morning

  • I heard it's only easier AFTER, not during. lol.
    Someone told me they weren't as sore feeling AFTER birthing the 2nd baby. It was more painful AFTER the first she said.

  • My second was much worse than the first because he was facing up instead of down. I don't think it matters how many you have, the pain is the same!
