Could anyone explain me the difference between "caught up with" and "caught up in"?

1. I am sorry, I am late, I got caught up with work.

I am sorry, I am late, I got caught up in work.

2. I was caught up with work.

I was caught up in work.

3. I am so much caught up with work.

I am so much caught up in work.

Thanks

Could anyone explain me the difference between "caught up with" and "caught up in"? We don't use "explain me" in English. Just say "explain".

1. I am sorry, I am late, I got caught up with work.

I am sorry, I am late, I got caught up in work.

2. I was caught up with work.

I was caught up in work.

There is no difference intended in meaning between 'with' and 'in' in the sentences in 1 and 2. Personally I would use 'in'. I use 'catch up with' in other contexts.

3. I am so much caught up with work.

I am so much caught up in work.

The sentences in 3 are unnatural.

Thanks
