CYcling and exercise during early pregnancy
Is cycling and action netball harmful to my baby during early pregnancy? (7weeks)
And then to me it feels the whole time as if I am is about to have my period. That bad mood feeling and I am very emotional. I alse have light cramps. Is this normal?

Provided you don't do strenuous cycling, it should be okay. The action netball sounds a bit too strenuous.
Mood changes are normal. There are lots of hormonal changes in pregnancy which can cause this. A few light cramps are normal.
