Can't Get PPC Campaign Started: My ads aren't displaying

I've created everything I need to get my PPC campaign started in google adwords. I've written my ads, made a landing page, got my keyword scores and had my ads approved but I'm not seeing any clicks, impressions or anything.

Google says my ads aren't displaying because:

The keyword phrase doesn't currently trigger any of your ads.
There are several possible reasons why your ad isn't showing for this keyword, including:
o You just added the keyword to your campaign. You may have to wait for a short period as your keyword goes through the review process.
o Our system is experiencing a delay.

The keywords are quite highly searched and I'm going as high as their recommended bids. It's been nearly 48 hrs since I tried to launch this. What is the normal waiting time to get your ads displaying in the search? Does anyone know how I can fix this?

Thanks for your reply, I shot google and email and they just said my account is under review, to check billing information etc. Apparently everything should be okay in 2-3 days.
