What damage could my high temperatures have done to my baby?

Heyya,
I have two questions :-)
Firstly, I am 11 weeks preggy and have some super cravings fa shrimps, I was wondering if it is possible to have them if I hard out boil them then dunk them strait from boiling ater into cold water and eat them straight away??? Would that be safe?
And secondly, I ran high temps in week 6 (39deg, due cold/flu) I had plenty of tepid showers to try keep my temps down, but I was wondering what damage this may have done???
Thank you heaps :-)
