I by no means intend to flood the forums as I am sure this is something that gets asked quite often but to give my Fiancee peace of mind I told her I would ask others on here as the feeling of personal support from others helps.

Me and my Japanese fiancee filed our I-129F packet on Oct. 10th 2014 and I received in the mail NOA-1 on Oct. 16th 2014 confirming the packet was received. Now being April 19th and we are at 185 days and no NOA-2 yet. We check the status on the USCIS site every couple of days to ensure we don't miss anything and we are setup for email/text alerts.

I know there are many on here who have had to wait longer than us but we are just getting nervous. Is it possible something is wrong with the case/they lost it etc? I just don't want anything to go too long without taking any action but I also don't want to act prematurely.

We tripled checked everything, made sure everything that needed signed was signed, provided pictures of us together, and me with her family in Japan on a recent vacation there, evidence of having met multiple times within the past 2 years in the US and Japan and everything else required in the I-129F packet.

Thanks and hoping for the best for everyone else on here and their journey :)

It's the 'normal' now I'm afraid. You are stuck at TSC which is backlogged. Many have been waiting 220+ days with no end in sight. Your NOA1 is right around mine, and I don't expect any movement until May... hopefully not later. If you are overly concerned you can call them, but I have to tell you, they will tell you the same thing, and mostly obnoxiously (and you don't need the stress).
