After 2 weeks of a tummy OP I carried my 17 lb. baby, I did not felt discomfort nor any pain, but I'm worried I might had damage some tissue. Could it have been that by body was ready?
Can my Body Be Ready to Pick Up my 17lb Baby After a Tummy Tuck?

Post tummy tuck, no discomfort, no damage
If you lifted properly and have no pain, you should be fine. Your body will tell you if you have strained or done too much after tummy tuck.

Lifting 2 weeks after tummy tuck
Thank you for your question. By 2 weeks of normal recovery after tummy tuck you likely can lift your baby without fear of damage.
However I agree that you should be examined by your plastic surgeon to make certain that everything is okay and specifically asked the Dr. for guidelines for lifting.
