Well you need to see a vet for sure but you can try and force feed her some water with an eye dropper tonight, but for sure take her in the morning.
Sorry, I couldn't post more last night - my daughter was trying to "type" as well (she's 18 months).

A common problem I've seen with female veileds is a blockage of the oviduct. This causes them to lay only part of the clutch. the way she's acting is very similar to the way females with this condition often act.

How many clutches has she laid before this, and how many eggs? When older females, who've laid huge clutches of eggs, are dying, it's very often right after laying a clutch - it's a stressful event, and it can push them over the edge. That she's so young, I don't think she's "burnt out".

Generally, it's not uncommon to see sick or old females die soon after laying eggs. Hopefully, she's just a little dehydrated.
Put her in the shower. If they are real dehydrated they are not always capable of extenting their tongue. The shower will do a better job of hydrating her then you probaly could with mistings. If the problem presist I would take her in. Even if she doesn't drink while she is in the shower her skin will absorb it and she will inhale a lot of it, it is kind of like force hydrating. Make sure she can get in and out of the water though.
