13 Days late... AF cramping, or what?


AF is officially 13 days late, and every now and then I'll get these sharp cramps in my pelvic region, around where the uterus would be. I'm not really sure if it's AF finally about to hit me or what... normally I don't cramp until the blood starts, and normally it's fairly intense throbbing pain for the first few hours and then I'm golden after. These cramps are different, weird, and I'm not quite sure how to explain them. It'd be too late for implantation, right? According to online calculators (yeah, I'm that lame), if I were pregnant I would be 5 weeks and 6 days. Taking one last hpt in the morning, and if it's a BFN I'm going to just accept it. It probably IS just AF finally arriving. If it is a BFP, what the heck could this cramping be???

Also potentially AF-related: I've been extremely emotional, crying over every little thing, getting angry at every other thing... and then suddenly I'm okay again until the next emotional upheaval. It's like my typical AF-emotional roller coaster on steroids (perhaps because it's late? idk...). I've been napping every few hours because I feel so exhausted all the time. And I've got a craving for a food I typically hate and almost everything else makes me sick. Actually, it's not that everything else makes me sick. It's that I start each day with one thing that I really feel like I HAVE to have (so far it's been the same... just started a few days ago), and everything that isn't the one thing I really want doesn't sit well on my stomach... and every time I consume a fair amount of dairy product, I suffer hours to a day of nausea and vomiting.

People keep telling me that stress could be delaying my period, but wouldn't that only be the case if stress had delayed my O? I mean, wouldn't the ONLY causes for a late period either be late O or pregnancy, in all actuality?

If you are like me, you can implant late - like around 12 dpo. I can't get a BFP until I am at least 2-3 days late. Cramping can be either, as can emotional turmoil. Just try to relax and see what happens tomorrow. If AF doesn't show up, then I would test the next morning.
GL!!!

Thank you! I tested yesterday morning, I believe, and it was BFN. I'm now 15 days late and nothing seems to be happening. Still wondering what in the world is going on. The worst part is if I AM out this cycle, I'm just super unsure as to when the next will begin. I hate not knowing when it's coming. This isn't normal for me, at all.
