According to your timeline, you haven't yet submitted your AOS packet? I started my process earlier this month, and my estimated date of approval for AP and EAD is end of April. With that timeline in mind, if you want to travel back to the UK in May, you could be cutting it a little too close, and I wouldn't recommend booking anything until the AP is in hand anyway.

You can successfully travel and come back to the USA when you get your AP after you file for AOS. If you travel before that time you will not be allowed back in to the USA.
