How long have you been waiting since they filed for your i 485?

A week

All the Indians and Chinese on this forum are frothing with anger at this post

Why?

@McK, a week ago.

I am in a similar situation. Going for biometric appointment and then will probably get the interview.

Did you have the biometric appointment yet?

I think it takes longer than a few weeks for the interview, but I do not know how long. Check with your immigration lawyers. They can give you estimated wait.

@McK1, I don’t have the biometric appointment yet. I heard it takes 16-18 months from this point. I wonder if that’s true. Some guy from Malaysia I work with told me he’s been waiting a while

I am 23 weeks pregnant with my first... And I'm not feeling baby kick. Should I be worried? The internet says you should feel the baby kick between 18-22 weeks, and to call your doctor if you don't feel anything by 22 weeks. All the online forums say they felt their kid kick at like 16 weeks. Additional context: At 20 week ultrasound, she was moving fine and the ultrasound tech was surprised I couldn't feel her then, which is why I haven't been worried until now...
