My Water Dragon is not eating.

I have a chinese Water dragon that is about a year old. She is 13 in. Long. For the past 3 week she has been off her food. For the last two week she has not eaten anything. Her belly is big and round.
I am very worried. I live in a small rural town, vet is great if you have a dog, or a cow....
Her normal food is mealy worms, once an week they are dusted with calcium.
I have offered her crickets, normally a treat that she loves and she looks at them but does not try to eat.

She has had a U.V. light bulb in her heat lamp. It has just gotten warm enough here, so she is currently sitting outside soaking up some sunlight. I can continue this.
She seems otherwise healthy, she is alert. At the moment when she moves around her belly drags on the ground a little bit.

I read a suggestion to feed her ensure the vitaman drink. When I looked at it it is high in calcium and vitamins, as well as having some calaries. So I have been doing that for the past week.

She seems to like it sticking out her tongue and lapping up a eyedropper full.

She has passes several stools this week.

All this is to say, Could she be gravid? I read that she is too young and small, but she is getting very skinny in her arms, legs and tail, but her belly is not.

If so what do I do.

If not what do I do. I have had her for since August and have gotten very attached.
