would be better if your tissues had more time to settle in.  Having said that, if you take care of yourself as far as diet and exercise and medications, you should be fine.  Do not expect the results of the tummy tuck to be what they would have if you had not had another baby,  all those tissues will be stretched out again and there are no guarantees that they will snap back to prepregnancy state.

The risk are related more to any meds you are on as opposed to any physical constraint after abdominoplasty procedures.  Your tummy will grow slowly enough that previous tightening will not interefere with abdominal expansion.  Be sure to let your OB know your history in case there are issues not immediately evident from your question.

My concern would be for a patient who became pregnant while on prescription pain medication. Questions in this regard are best addressed to your obstetrician. In terms of the tummy tuck result, the pregnancy, particularly if accompanied by a large weight gain or a C-section, could result in the need for a subsequent revision.

Thank you for the question. 
Generally speaking, patients are able to have normal pregnancies after tummy tuck surgery.   Check with your own OB/GYN  about the general risks associated with pregnancies for patients in your age range.
Depending on weight gain/loss,  changes in skin elasticity,  genetics etc. revisionary surgery may be necessary after the pregnancy.  
Best wishes.
