You should not have a tummy tuck now if you plan on future pregnancies.
If you have a tummy tuck and then have an additional pregnancy, your tummy tuck results will be compromised and you will likely require a revision tummy tuck after the birth of your child. A revision tummy tuck is more difficulty than the first tummy tuck, and your best results will be obtained by having all of your children and then having a tummy tuck. Additionally, you should wait at least 9-12 months after the birth of your last child before considering a tummy tuck.
It is impossible to predict if and where a woman will get stretch marks during a pregnancy. As women get older and their skin loses elasticity and thickness, they are more prone to stretch marks with each pregnancy.
