19 weeks angry/worried/frustrated

Brand new here!
Was put on bed rest on 9/30 at 19 weeks 2 days because the top of my cervix is opening (funneling) and my membranes is dipping into it.
My cervix is still 5cm long so IDK if they call this incompetent or not.

The doctor was vague, and gave me bed rest and progesterone suppositories.

I’m scared because she said the goal is 24 weeks so I’m worried every minute that I won’t make it, even though she said she’s had mothers go all the way with this to 40 weeks.

I’m angry because I can’t be happy about my pregnancy really while I’m so scared and worried.

And I’m frustrated because lots of what I’ve read says bed rest isn’t even effective and can even cause more problems.
