A question about growth and development

I'm a 18.5 years old guy, 5'6", and 120-125 lbs. Something on my mind lately has been how much more growth I can expect during my main "growth" years and what exactly will change.

My growth history has been as follows. At around 14, I was about 5'0", 134 lbs (overweight). At 15, I grew like 2 inches and leaned out, losing like 20 pounds somehow. It wasn't intentional. From 16-17, I weighed around 117-120. I haven't grown much in the past two years, perhaps an inch if that. I'm somewhat small. I have 35" hips, 29" waist, 35" chest, 14" neck, and a 6.5" wrist. My shoulders have broadened out, not an incredible amount, but I don't lift weights so that is probably to be expected. I try to stay active by running and such, and don't have too much body fat. However, I feel that if I was to gain weight most of it would go into fat. I have a fairly deep voice, that of an adult. I have leg and armpit hair but no chest hair or facial hair (save some above and below my lips). None of it is incredibly thick but seems to be becoming more so with time.

My mother is 5'3", and my father is almost 5'7". She is small framed, about my weight, and he is around 200 lbs, quite overweight. As such I can't really determine what I will look like fully grown. I'm not sure whose genetics I have more of. Does anyone have any ideas what I can expect in the next 3 years? Thanks.
