some days I have a very fast pulse and feel very breathless even if I am sitting down. Does anyone else get this . I am worried about my baby. I'm 17 weeksa.

Unfortunately as you get bigger, your lungs are losing the room they need to expand fully -- especially when you're sitting down. You also have to pump more blood as you get bigger, so your heart rate will increase. What you're feeling is one of those unfortunate and perfectly symptoms which will likely get worse as you get closer to your due date. It has no effect on your baby even though it will make you uncomfortable

I had that problem with my first pregnancy and it is very common, however, if you are concerned it never hurts to call your OB.
