Dd 1 was 2.5 hrs from 1st contraction till she was born
Ds was 1.5hrs and dd2 was about 2 hrs so yes in my experience they do get quicker!

First labour - water broke, intense contractions within 15 mins, started pushing after four hours. DS born roughly six hours after waters breaking.
Second labour - water broke, intense contractions straight away, DS born 20 mins after water broke
Both were equally as intense, but the second labour was easier (and not because of the duration...it was just easier).

My first was 6 hours, I was induced but was already 3cms dilated. Second was just under 2 hours. Waters broke at 7.45pm, ds born at 9.36pm - no time for drugs!

Second labour, 4 hours 10 minutes from first contraction. Waters broke about an hour before contractions started, though had lost my mucous plug earlier in the day. Labour intense, though not as bad as first time. I was a lot more prepared and relaxed. Laboured and birthed babe in water, no tear and very relaxed at the end.
Third labour we are yet to see....my MW has told me 3rd labours can be unpredictable, though that i've had two rather speedy deliveries the trend seems to be that i just labour that way. We'll see, i really don't think i'd cope with a long labour as i'm so used to it being over with so fast.

DS 5mo = 2 hours total labour from first inkling of contraction to delivery. It was HORRIBLE. No time for drug even though I was pleading for them. I kicked, screamed and panicked and didn't cope psychologically with baby coming so fast. The pain was intense.
I'm not certain I want a second due to how horrific the first delivery was.

I only have one but wanted to add...
He was 4.5 hours from waking up with first contraction to delivery. I didn't find it all that painful- could def go again. No drugs, 2nd degree tear. The most painful part was the stiching of the tear but only because the student midwife didn't put enough anestethic in!!! Grrr
