Just moved to a new house which was built in 1908. We had one molding sanded and I didn't know that an underneath layer had lead. I didn't sand it, but I was in the house right after it was done and I'm 9 months pregnant. Will my baby be okay?

In brief: Doubt it

At this point baby's finished forming and just gaining weight.
The potential exposure you cite is minimal, but your OB could run a blood lead test if You are going crazy. Low level exposures are not very significant.Chronic exposure is the real problem.
