When Mercedes “MJ” Javid shared an update on her pregnancy earlier this month, the Shahs of Sunset mama-to-be was so excited to get her hair styled and put on makeup after the monotony of mandatory bed rest.
But this weekend, MJ decided to forget the makeup altogether when she went on video on Instagram to share how she's been doing lately. MJ looked so gorgeous — and her skin is glowing — in her candid makeup-free selfies and videos that she posted on Instagram — check them out below. She showed off her bump earlier in the month, saying: "#babybump is coming in and it’s so cute!"
She's also sharing how being a mom has changed her life already. "The biggest transformation," MJ say in the video below, "I've really developed a strong craving for very healthy, fresh veggies that I used to think were bland." She's loving snacking on fresh fruit all by itself, and veggies like Persian cucumbers and baby cucumbers, and she's hoping that carries onto her life when the baby is born.
Another very exciting bit of news: MJ's bed rest is almost over.
"We're almost at the end of bed rest, I'm about to be free and out in the world. All the doctors appointments have been going well (knock on wood,)" she says in the video. "We're starting to be able to start the part where I can look at strollers, plan the nursery, the shower. For me, my pregnancy is starting now because I"m not on lockdown and I'm really excited about it."
