Stopping Progesterone And Estrogen After IVF

Hi everyone! I wasn't sure where to post this. After 3 years of fertility treatments, my husband and I got pregnant on our 3rd and last IVF. I have been on estrace (1mg/day) and endometrin suppositories (2xs a day). My doc told me to stay on them for 9.5 weeks. The other day I was 10 weeks and I stopped first with the estrogen and in the middle of the night...literally hours after I missed a dose, I had cramping in my pelvis (no bleeding) that entire night and the following day. I called my fertility doc and he said that it was withdrawl from the hormones and to keep taking them for a few more weeks and then to ween. I'm not on all that high of a dose but now I'm worried that I will start to cramp and bleed whenever I stop. I should also mention that at about 7.5 weeks my OB said that my progesterone was way to high (275)and to cut back to one tab a day, so I did and one week later I started to spot light pink blood. Again, I went back on my normal dose of two a day and the spotting was gone. Please let me know if anyone has had any problems coming off hormones post first trimester. I'm starting to get really worried that I won't be able to stop without having problems. Thanks! ?
