1.  What will happen if i plan for having a baby?
2.  Will my body cooperate to go through upto full term delivery?
3.  How much i will get hurt, when my tummy gets expands during the prenancy?
4. Is it possible for me to carry a fetus till my due date without any problem?
5.  Is it good idea to have baby now?

  Please i need help for my questions.

Having had the abdominoplasty will have no bearing on your ability to carry a baby to term.  However, do expect that the tightened muscle fascia will re-stretch, so that you will loose the flatness you have achieved after the surgery.
