In brief: Yes this is okay

I would continue with exercise during the pregnancy, but over time you should "expect less" of your self in terms of what you will tolerate.
If you are having cramping, then you probably need to back off a little bit. In the absence of bleeding, this cramping is not concerning at this point.

It should be ok and from the activity.
If the cramps go away with rest there is no problem.See your doctor if it gets worse or persist.Iwill go slow on the exercises.
