What did your second pregnancy feel like?

I am completely scared to feel this pain again. I wonder how birth the second time felt for some of you ladies? Was it worse? The same? Or a  better and less painful experience? I felt like I was burning in the deepest pit of hell...so yes,  I am very scared.

Giving birth the second time around is usually easier.  First, your body has been through it before so reacts better.  Second, you should be less afraid because it is no longer the fear of the unknown.  You've already done it.  I had epidurals so pain wasn't really a fear of mine.  That's always an option.  And the end result of your new baby is fantastic so I was more excited than afraid.  But most women have an easier time after their first baby.  good luck and congrats
