You have educated yourself on various timelines to understand all variables of the most efficient EAD filing; however, your knowledge is very basic and falls short of the needed expertise. In my professional opinion, you may never substitute a competent legal professional by surmising like “If this happens, of course I will apply for” withholding of removal “et cetera. To advise you to how practice complex immigration law pro se would be not only foolish, but unprofessional.
Alos, there is no such notion as "normal" in any immigration proceedings as each case is shaped by its unique circumstances and facts and its timelines change accordingly.
You need a professional attorney.
