Hi Vinmala, thank you for the question and congratulations with your pregnancy.

Unfortunately you will need to wait 6 months after the baby has been born before considering surgery. During this period I would continue with an exercise program and an abdominal strengthening regime. However, please consult with your plastic surgeon and ask for his or her opinion.
