How was your 2nd time in labor?


My first was so easy. They induced me and from the time they broke my waters to the time my baby came it was about 4 hours. I pushed for 8 minutes. This was with an epidural.

This time around I want to go all natural, no induction, no epi, and a water birth with my partners support.

I'm wondering if its true your second time is always faster than the first? Or is it possible for me to have a longer and more excruciating labor this time? I expect more pain but not sure what to expect in terms of how long labor will actually last.
