Hi Everyone,

What a funny co-incidence for us (AntandD) that approximately in July 2009:

1) We filed for the I-751/10yrGC (in August of 2008), and based on the following:

Visa Journey's Unofficial VSC I-751 Status List:

http://www.visajourney.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=110056 (scroll to the last updated page)

USCIS' Official Processing Times for VSC List:

https://egov.uscis.gov/cris/processTimesDis...e=serviceCenter

I-751/10yrGC Estimated Due Date (11 months waiting,filed at 'VerySlowCenter'): July 2009

2) We (Ant, actually) are/is Pregnant, and based on what was confirmed medically, is the following:

Our Baby's Estimated Due Date (9 months waiting): July 2009

*Therefore, which will arrive for AntandD first: 10yr Green Card or Baby?*

Your vote and opinion here is greatly appreciated! As well, any other ideas, thoughts, advice, suggestions, etc. posted below is greatly appreciated too. Thank you!

Good luck, to everyone here for the rest of your immigration journeys too!

Okay, I'm going to go out on a limb and say you will get your 10 year green card first followed very closely by your baby:-). I am thinking you will get your green card in June - no explanation why, just a hunch. Good luck on both!


“...Isn't it splendid to think of all the things there are to find out about? It just makes me feel glad to be alive--it's such an interesting world. It wouldn't be half so interesting if we knew all about everything, would it? There'd be no scope for imagination then, would there?”

I'm pretty sure you'll have a toddler before you get that card.

But I'm hoping for them to be at the same time.

Hi Everyone,

:star: Thank you everyone, for your congratulations and well-wishes! :star:

As well, :star: thanks more importantly so for voting in this "poll" and for posting your opinions too, :star: as that definitely helps.

Hmm...from the results so far, it looks as though more of you VJers have less faith in the USCIS, and think that "Our Baby will be born first" instead of the green card approval first. Interesting....

But in the end, who knows which will happen first, as only time can tell that....And yes, the mystery of "what will happen first for AntandD" will be eventually solved here on VJ...

I agree too, that "the Baby is more valuable and more precious than the Green Card"!!!

As well, I'll keep all you I-751 VJers updated here in regards to the rest of pregnancy in this thread (if you want to read about it here, that is), and in regards as to when I get my 10yr green card too.

Until then, good luck everyone, on the rest of your immigration journeys too!

Ant (Still waiting at the VSC, Still waiting for our Baby)

P.S. To those of you who haven't voted, and/or haven't posted an opinion, and would still like to, by all means, feel free to "keep on voting and posting", as that helps too! Thanks!
