Case Type : I 129 with COS H4 - H1 (Already had a valid petition with previous employer)

Package sent to USCIS : 26th September

Receipt No received : 28th September (Status 'Initial Draft')

Sent I-907 to USCIS for upgrade to premium : 19th Oct (Status was still 'Initial Draft')

Received e mail for upgrade confirmation : 31st Oct (status changed from 'Initial Draft' to 'Acceptance')

Approved : 3rd Nov (Status changed from 'Acceptance' to 'Post Decision Activity' and to 'Decision' on same day)

Waiting for the paperwork

In my opinion , do not rely on the the USCIS website for status, be patient and everything will work out in the end . Best of luck ...
