Life seemed to be going smoothly for Shahs of Sunset star Mercedes “MJ” Javid. She got married to the man of her dreams, Tommy Feight. Then she and Tommy wanted to have a baby, so MJ went through IVF and was able to get pregnant. All good news, right?
A few months into her pregnancy, MJ opened up on social media. She revealed that she was put on mandatory bedrest. This happened during Tommy’s birthday no less. More recently, things got worse again for MJ and she ended up in the hospital.
MJ shared how she almost had a miscarriage. She said, “During a check up, we found that my cervix was measuring to 1.5 centimeters, which is high risk for m.c.” She continued, “My exceptionally incredible doctor…performed this surgery called cervical cerclage.”
Consequently, this surgery put her back on bedrest. MJ said, “How I’ve gotten through this is with a lot of faith, my beautiful father’s calming spirit inside of me, along with a maternal strength, and my husband’s unrelenting support and kindness.” I wonder how her mother Vida Javid feels about not being mentioned? I can just picture Vida by MJ’s bedside yelling at her for not plastering her face with make-up post surgery.
MJ then shared another update from the hospital. She said, “There is so much more to come and although bed rest has not been the ideal way to spend this beautiful time, I am learning a lot, and finding a blessing in EVERYTHING.” I would agree that going through a traumatic time in your life does make one reflect and appreciate what you have.
In an interview with Pagesix, MJ discussed the surgery and why she decided to share this information with her fans over social media. She explained, “I just wanted to make sure that fans, followers, or viewers of the show don’t feel excluded…I don’t want anyone to feel that there should be any secrecy in the process, and the outpour of well wishes is really awesome.”
She described the state of mind she was in when posting the video. MJ said, “When I took that video, it was honestly hard for me to even form sentences because I was so scared.”
Luckily everything went well. MJ is back on bedrest for “another month and a half.”
Several Shahs co-stars have to come to visit MJ, like Reza Farahan, Mike Shouhed, Nema Vand and Destiney Rose. MJ joked, “I tell everyone to keep me entertained with their drama so that I can live vicariously. I’m deep in their IG stories.”
MJ also dished that some of her pregnancy will be featured on the upcoming season because she will have been in her third trimester. Let’s hope that the rest of MJ’s pregnancy is smooth sailing and drama free. She needs a break.
TELL US – DO YOU THINK MJ POSTING ABOUT HER SURGERY IS A GOOD IDEA? OR IS IT TOO PERSONAL TO SHARE WITH FANS? DO YOU THINK VIDA IS UPSET FOR NOT BEING MENTIONED IN THE POST? DO YOU THINK THE REST OF THE CAST WILL VISIT MJ?
