When I have to use dd (if I can, I use dc3dd) I try to remember to include option status=progress to have a progress indicator.
Last time on a Linux machine, I forgot to include that option. Reading the man page for a solution, I found this:
I could get a progress indication, without having to restart dd with the missing status option, by sending it the sigusr1 signal (on Linux).
