Thank you so much for the reply! Yes I did some research last night and ended up impatiently cancelling the multiple transactions I made previously by sending 0 ETH to myself and upping the gas. Besides learning about gwei, gas, and nonce, the main lesson is don’t be cheap with gas!
I’ll outline my process here in case anyone else can benefit from it:
I ended up using My Ether Wallet in conjunction with my Ledger. I used the “send offline helper” on the MEW website to custom-write a transaction to and from the my same ledger address. The tool lets you customize the nonce of the transaction. That webpage will give you a transaction code that I copied. Then, I logged into my Ledger on MEW and used the “Send offline” tool and pasted the transaction code, it filled in all the previous info and I sent it to the network with higher gas that way. It overwrote the previous transaction that was in limbo and the newer one with higher gas went through!
This video was very helpful:
Note that you don’t need two computers to do this process as the video states, you can do both from the same computer
The second transaction ended up going through for 102 gwei later as opposed to 80 gwei, so I agree that waiting a day is the best option at first, if you can be patient haha. If after then it still hadn’t sent, I think it’d be reasonable to send a replacement transaction with higher gwei and nullify the first
