I think generally 2nd births are meant to be better then first. I'm sure there are those who had a horror of a time but mine was fab 2nd time, nice, quick, easy, I went from 'wind' to holding him in 2.5 hrs! Most of my friends did it v quickly 2nd time too. I did tear, but for me that was inevitable. I think if you stay on a nice positive frame of mind you'll do great!
