Truthfully, no. My second was harder. Labor was not nearly as wrapped in an easy package (more complications) and therefore it ended up being harder and more intense. But I was augmented with my second and I think that made a world of difference since I wasn't expecting how different it would feel. I was also augmented with my third, but was more able to prepare for how I would cope and that made it much easier.

So in some ways, I think if you are going in with lots of skills to handle the contractions and you are aware of what it might feel like, you may have an easier birth with number two. But I would certainly not count on it. For fear that getting "too confident" in it being easier will cause its own problems. KWIM?
