Domain transfer is pending and both Goadady and the old registrar know nothing about it!

Hi, my domain was supposed to be transferred from launchpad to

Godaddy but it's still pending even after the appointed transfer date.

I got the transfer confirmation email and I accepted it immediately, also I got the email

From Hostgator confirming the request and informing me that if I did not cancel the

Transfer request by 12th of November the transfer will be done.

But the domain status here on Godaddy's dashboard is:

Transfer status:
Pending transfer-in.
Recommended action:
We're waiting for approval from the sending registrar, which can take up to 7 days.

I contacted Hostgator but they told me they can not see any action that can be done

From their side

Now what can I do?
