Hello, coincidentally, in conversation with my husband, I realized that we have pieces of furniture which was freshly painted with oil paint on wood. I was 2. Months of pregnancy then. The smell was gone for a couple of days, but now I realize that could harm the baby. I am scared because I read that this type of paint can defect a baby's brain and it causes autism. I'm in the 6th month now. Does it mean that I did not harm the baby, if everything is ok on every ultrasound?
