In brief: Yes

But not the nasal vaccine with attenuated live virus.
Being immunized is much safer for the fetus than having the disease.

In brief: Yes

Yes. The flu is bad enough when you are not pregnant, but can be very dangerous to you and the baby if you get it while pregnant.
In addition, if you receive the flu vaccine while pregnant, it will protect the baby when you give birth. Also breastfeeding is very important to help the baby fight viruses during cold and flu season.
