3rd labors resemble 1st?

During a recent appointment, one of our midwives told my husband and I that with a third pregnancy, the labor tended to look more like the first than the second. This isn't consistent with what I've heard/ready before, which was always that each labor had a tendency to be a bit shorter. Obviously, there are exceptions to this, but I had never heard that labor #3 was more like #1 - has anyone else??

I was a bit disappointed to hear this, given that my second labor was just under 4 hours, and I am perfectly happy to have a repeat of that labor, or even a shorter one for #3
