@nomsequitur If it were me, I'd wait for an offer of rep and then nudge with a time limit.

@Aurillian Thank you! Here's what I wrote:
"I hope this finds you well. I'm checking in on my manuscript, <title>, which you requested on April 4th. Can you please confirm that you've received it and let me know when I should expect a response? Also, for your information, three other agents are also currently reading the manuscript." I haven't heard back yet though.

@nomsequitur congrats on your full request and interest from an editor! What kind of text did you use to nudge? I'm always too chicken to nudge, but I've decided to try and be a bit more gutsy after reading this!
