So, I hate to post stuff like this because I know that there is other people out there who have been waiting way longer than me, but I'm sure everyone feels the same way at some point.

I'm a couple of days away from my 3rd month of waiting on our K-1, and I can sure feel it. I'm a march filer and it just seems that SO many people from march are getting their NOA2s already! what about the poor people behind march! I mean its great that people are getting their approvals, but... what about the people that filed first?

I wouldn't wish this stupid process on anyone, its horrible.

Hang tight! 3 months is kind of like the hump day of waiting. Once you've passed it, time goes much quicker and you realise how many things you need to organise to get ready for the big move!

Know how you feel , we were the same last year sent off 129f 22nd Feb they got it 9th March. I came over to the US 19th March - 19th June and got home one week we were approved. So there is still time and it says on USCIS 5 months but if they are processing well you will be approved soon. You need to be getting all the paperwork together for Packet 3 and you can look that all up on Sydney US consulate site. Fill them out and then print off. Not sure if you are in Sydney but you can schedule your medical as well without a case number with Dr Waks, if they still do it otherwise you will have to wait for a case number, but you can get all the preliminary work done now while you wait and you need to get police report done too. That takes 4 weeks to mail back to you.

We're January filers and we're still waiting and trust me watching everyone else get NOA2 gets a bit disheartening but after awhile, we both just try to keep hope and faith and just push forward. We can only take it a day at a time.

I'm an October filer and I think one of your replies is from a fellow October filer : ) I'm still sitting in my home country though. Every aspect of this journey feels like being stuck in a nutcracker. No matter the amount of patience and acceptance of it. I stopped checking Igor's list in February - they started approving a bunch of Jan/feb filers. I just couldn't bear the "aaany day now!" feeling when nothing seemed to fysically bring me any closer to my fiance. Visa Journey can be a great support, comfort and source but it also reminds you of all the petitions ahead of yours.

When google chrome showed Visa Journey and USCIS check status above facebook and my mail I really had to figure out a better way, friends and family as the network. Or just do a Dr. House marathon (it was either that or blocking my own access to USCIS and everything relating to this wonder visa journey). Option #3 was buying a dslr camera and making a new challenge for myself each day. Heck, I even read the motorcycle driver license manual out loud to my fiancé through skype down to the last page(he had to read it anyways so I offered to join him). Just anything keeping myself(and him) occupied.. and somewhat sane!

Last but not least: Hang in there!
