Actually, since you came on a K1 visa, you might be one of the "lucky" ones whose interview gets waived. If that happens, your case will stay at the NBC, where current processing times are running at 9-12 months.

AOS from K-1 cases don't always get an interview (50/50 chances). If you are scheduled for one, it is usually pretty fast (1-2 months after biometrics). If your case is waived from an interview, then the wait is pretty long (up to a year).

So this is all normal. Nothing else to do than waiting for now.
