Your best bet is to take her to a vet, nitalee. It may be something as simple and easy to fix as a case of worms, but it could also be something more serious. Your vet may be willing to check a fecal sample for worms without seeing your cat, so you might want to call and ask about that.

It could be lots of things actually - some of them more serious and some not that serious.

are the poos very hard? could she be constipated?
I agree with the others though - vet visit is recommended.
Good luck!

Another way of getting more water in her would be to feed her canned food. Cats are designed to get most of their water from food, not drinking and often don't feel the urge to drink even if they need it. I don't know what you feed your cat, but you might consider adding some canned food.
