    The first three definitely sound fine. I think I'd change the fourth one to: I thought about you when I took a shower.

    PS Don't forget to capitalize your "I"s. :)

    You can also say 'While in the shower, I was thinking about you'.

    I tend to talk about having a shower rather than taking a shower (both are possible in BrE), so I could say your 2nd, 3rd and 4th versions using 'having' or 'had' instead of 'taking' or 'took'.

    And I always take, or have, A shower, not THE shower.
    Only on the first example would I be in THE shower.
    Otherwise I could use all four possibilities, depending on the context.
