Yes, with caution: Ordinary IV fluids, such as normal saline, are often used in pregnancy when patients become dehydrated. Make sure that your health care providers know you're pregnant, though, so they don't give you anything with the fluid that can cause problems.

Yes: Yes it is ok, and good for you. Far better for both you and the baby if you are hydrated.
