(Im)possible pregnancy - confused and worried.

I posted a few weeks ago about a completely unrelated issue, but I seek help from you wonderful people again!

I consider myself pretty knowledgeable about fertility/pregnancy/etc, but it seems all I can do right now is freak out & forget anything I've ever known about this stuff.

My cycles have ranged from 23 days long to 28 days long in the past few months. I am heading into day 31 now and I don't really have any of my normal PMS symptoms. However, I believe I'm spotting? There is a slight tinge of brown on the toilet paper, but that's all I'm experiencing.

According to science, the chances of me being pregnant are very slim. I had unprotected sex during a non-fertile period (it was about a week after I ovulated) AND there was no ejaculation near my vagina. Still, I can't help but worry.

I feel like it's silly to test, as I'm only "technically" a day or two late (if we're going by the fact that I normally have a 28 day cycle, but like I said, it varies). But waiting for my period to come is stressing me out. I know stress can definitely delay it, so I'm trying to relax about it. I just don't know if I should assume this is an irregular period or what. I should also add that I'm in the process of losing weight. I've lost almost 40 pounds in the past 3 months, and I know weight loss can disrupt normal cycles as well. I just don't know what to think! But any advice would be greatly appreciated. :)
