I just found out that i'm 5 weeks pregnant. I wanted to know is it bad to get angry in early pregnancy?

Depends: Increased emotionality during preg can be due hormonal changes and due to stress of adapting to changing life-roles. Women have been experiencing these challenges for millennia without harming pregnancy.
