In brief: Get seen now

Any time you have dizziness and trouble breathing, especially if you are so short of breath that you cannot talk in full sentences it is serious.
The cause may or may not be related to smoke/fumes. Please get seen now! call 911.

In brief: Pg smells

The smell can not harm your unborn fetus.
The question is why the smoke is causing you to have difficulty breathing. If you are having bronchospasm or asthmatic symptoms secondary to the smoke inhalation, you may need some treatment to make you breathe easily.

In brief: No

The smell cannot harm the baby but you not breathing well can certainly be a problem for the baby.
If you are short of breath just talking then you need to be evaluated. You could be having bronchospasm from the smoke and fumes.
