    Answered . You have done a lot. Sometimes when you do too much it actually slows your case down because USCIS has to keep pulling the file to a different section to answer the various inquiries so pick one and follow up with that source.

    Answered . I agree with Ms. Feldman. By taking so many steps, you may have succeeded in slowing down the process because you have so many inquiries from multiple sources. At this point the only thing you could or should do is be patient and make no further inquiries.

    Good luck!
