Does having a 10 year gap between children effect labour?

I am currently 22 wks pregnant with my second child and there will be a 10yr gap between my children. I have heard that your body forgets in this time and that labour will not be any faster as is usually the case with second children. Is this true. Can your body really forget?

Answer: Hi, No your body won't forget and you will labour as if you have done it before. However, you wil notice that you may feel a bit older this time around! Best wihses, Alex.
