Filed for wife's 485 form, not sure how long to wait?

Hi, so when we initially filed, we had done the I-130 form back when we were living in Connecticut, in December of 2017. At that time we didn't file the I-485. We then moved to Seattle in February of 2018 and then filed the I-485  and I-765 around March 2018. We kept the old Connecticut address (my parents were still living there) initially since were told by someone at the USCIS office that it might mess up the process, but we eventually decided we should change the address.  In August 2018 we filed for the address change and as soon as we did that, it said we had the interview cancelled. We never got a notice before that of the interview even being scheduled. We haven't had an update on the case since then and we're worried if the application got lost or something.


My other question is that we had the I-693 done last year in April, this was about a month after filing the I-485. I was wondering if we don't receive the interview before that time, will we need to do the I-693 again? I know that it initially expired in a year from the date it was done. However, I've seen some people mention it lasts for 2 years now, but they say it had to be done 60 days before filing? Will we need to redo it in our case since the doctor signed it after we already filed the I-485 a month before?
