I can only answer one part of your question. No suspect food is OK to eat after being frozen for a couple of months. Whatever bacteria is already there merely goes into dormancy or spore stage during freezing. When thawed out, bacteria “wakes up” and continues to multiply.

That doesn’t tell you much about tilefish, it’s just applicable to anything that can harbour bacteria.

I’d say “If in doubt, go without”, but it’s hard to withstand cravings when you’re pregnant! You might find it easier to think or read about the nutritional properties of tilefish (because that’s what your body is actually craving) and finding a similar food that is a little safer.
