In brief: Of course

You most certainly may develop a hernia, and it may not be related to your pregnancy.
Certainly, all surgical scars may develop hernias, as well. I suggest you schedule an exam with your doctor, but even if you have a hernia, there will be no pressing need for immediate repair. Good luck.

In brief: Yes

You may notice a bulging in the incision site that is larger with standing compared to laying down.
May also be associated with pain. See your doctor for an exam to be sure.
