I received an email saying that our I-130 got approved. We filed on October 28th and it took us ONLY 37 days to have our petition approved.

1- Have we been expedited? We wrote on the envelope "filed from abroad" it should be noted that ours did not go to California but it went to Vermont center.

2- How long is it going to take us to get this process done especially that my wife is now 5 weeks pregnant?

It is hard to say why you got through USCIS so quickly. It could be because you filed from abroad, and I am sure someone who knows more than I do will chime in on this. It is also hard to say how long this process will take for your case. NVC is your next step, and they are backlogged at the present time. Unless you have been formally expedited (and pregnancy is not in the criteria for consideration for an expedite) it could take another 3 to 6 months to navigate the remainder of the process.

This guide should explain things better than I can. I do not know your case and every case is different. Good luck on your journey! :)

Both Vermont and California have the "super secret" auto expedite for people filing from abroad. You have not officially been expedited.

Read the NVC process link provided. Timeframe varies by how good you are at paperwork and how fast your embassy is at scheduling interviews.

I can only echo the above. Make sure you read through the Wiki and familiarise yourself with the process. For the past 3 months the average number of days between NOA2 and interview at the consulate for Morocco is at 213 days, based on timeline data. You can view the stats for IR1/CR1 visa types for the past three months on the link below.

What I neglected to add is that this might include data from users that have received NVC checklists for not providing the correct documents/filling out paperwork correctly or haven't updated their timelines correctly, so please don't treat it as Bible.
