That is the usual wisdom. Though any physician can tell you exceptions.
Please talk to your OB doctor about any concerns.

In brief: Yes
Usually labor moves along faster with each pregnancy, but that is not always true.
If the baby is bigger or turned in an odd way labor could be slower. In general though labor is slowest with the first pregnancy.
