With each child you have does labor get shorter?

I've only had 2 babies.

Labor with my son lasted 10 hours. Pushing him out was like an hour worth.

Labor with my daughter was only 3 hours and it took no longer than 10 minutes to push her out. I watched her birth so I saw everything. 


If I have a 3rd child will it be even shorter?

    No.  I've attended labors where the first one was a few hours and now their second, third, fourth is going into the second day.  It just depends on how the labor goes.  Of course, with a history of a 3 hour labor/10 minute pushing, your doctor will likely want you at the hospital at any sign of labor.
