Can inhaling smoke in pregnancy cause harm to the baby ?

Yesterday there was a big roof fire in a building next to my office (c. 100 yards away). We didn t open any windows, and the air condition was shut down but we could still smell some smoke in the office. After a couple of hours I requested to leave work and work from home as I am 29 weeks pregnant and I was concerned that the smoke could be harmful even though it was faint. Today my throat is a little scratchy, but I didn t have to cough or anything like that. Should I be worried for my baby?

most probably, there is nothing to worry.
How are the child movements in womb?
Are they normal?
if you feel any problem or something abnormal, then you should consult gynaecologist.
