Is Pregnancy safe after Laparotomy?

Hie, I am 32 and have had no children. I had a laparotomy due to Peritonitis in July this year and its now 3mths since. My worry is, is it safe to get pregnant now? Can the scar tolerate the stretch of a bulging tummy? My greatest fear is incisional hernia. Plse advise

I had the same surgery done for a Utern Fibroid I had. I was told to wait 3 months before trying to get prego. I am now 6mths prego and my scars do hurt quit a bit now. I had my surgery back in Jan 08'.
