Keep your fingers crossed! I don't think anyone can tell you or if there's a way you will know. Mother Nature just has to run its course! Each person is different but it seems like you're heading the right direction! They say that it is usually around the same time as your mother...but whose knows how true this theory is.
A friend of mine didn't have her period for 11 months and then it came back!! So, she has to start counting all over! I didn't have mine for 6 months and then it came back just last month. I think most of us are looking forward to the day when this is all over with!
