I recommend not looking at your experience in the first birth at all, because every new birth is always different from those that the woman has already suffered, no matter how many of them.
If you didn’t like the first experience, Perhaps you will be comforted by the statistics saying that second births are not only faster, but also easier than the first.
The fact is that women who have already given birth are anatomically distinguished by a wider cervical lumen and they have feelings of precursors of childbirth stronger. Therefore, the precursors of second-birth births often begin earlier than those of primiparous, and precursors of 2 births, as a rule, are pronounced. At the same time, in the second and subsequent times, the birth process may be more rapid, and the time between precursors and childbirth may be reduced. If in a primiparous woman, precursors appear two or even three weeks before childbirth, then in a multiparous woman they can begin in just a day.
Women who have had more than ten years since their previous birth should bear in mind that that the body has fully recovered after the first birth, the uterus no longer "remembers" about them and for you, most likely, the second birth will proceed like the first, which means that the precursors may begin long before the birth.
From an anatomical point of view, re-births are expected to be easier because the anatomy of the birth canal is already prepared first for the passage of the fetus. However, this is only a theoretical assumption based on objective assumptions, but does not take into account a huge number of probabilities: the age of the mother, her state of health, the course of pregnancy and the level of medical technology.
The first birth of a young healthy girl in a modern equipped maternity hospital can proceed much easier than the next delivery of a forty-year-old sleeper with chronic hepatitis and hypovitaminic osteoporosis in the district hospital of Uryupinsk.
