Mercedes “MJ” Javid likes to keep things positive on Instagram (just check out her ode to body positivity). And the Shahs of Sunset newlywed also is willing to share so much of her life with her followers, and that includes each and every step on the way to motherhood. It's something that MJ is calling a "beautiful, arduous journey" in her latest Instagram post as she checks in at 10 weeks before her due date.
MJ's been on mandatory bed rest during her pregnancy, and she's seeing the silver lining in this in the sweetest way. "Tommy and I have become stronger during pregnancy, and I actually feel like bedrest has given me a totally unexpected different outlook on the future," she wrote in the post. "Everything is a blessing! I am so grateful for what lies ahead."
In the video, MJ showed off her newly done hair (her stylist came to her), and she also revealed her baby bump — she's said in the past that she's one of those moms whose pregnancy doesn't show early. She wrote: "#babybump is coming in and it’s so cute! I already feel like I’m going to miss being pregnant!" Aww! Click play on the video below to see MJ's cute bump.
It wouldn't be MJ without her sense of humor. She says in the video that she's "so excited" to take a shower, put makeup on, and get a blowout — and she has the best description of what it's like to be on bedrest. "Bedrest feels like being in an airport and not being able to get on any planes that go out of town to take you anywhere," she says.
