Was your second birth easier?

My second was longer, by six hours. He had shoulder dystocia (probably could have delivered him much easier if I had been allowed to move from on my back), he was also 10lb 5oz. He was a natural delivery, but he wasn't breathing when he was born and was turning blue.
The birth was awful, long, hard, scary......and in a MAJOR teaching hospital where they screwed up at every turn, including losing my chart and the doctor who was supposed to deliver me leaving minutes before I gave birth, so a random doc in the hall assisted.
They went on and on telling me how all the problems were from him being so large.
Amazingly I went on years later to have an 11lb 8oz baby AT HOME with no issues whatsoever.
That was 17 years ago, and one of the main reasons I either have homebirths now or if I must do the hospital thing I walk in at 10cm.
