Well Lola is now 13 weeks old,she is still waking up at night to go to the bathroom, is that unusual? Gracie started sleeping all night at about 9 to 10 weeks old. How old were your pups when they began holding it through the night?
We got Alfie at 22 weeks and I never got up once to let him piddle in the night HTH x
Hate to tell you this but Oakley was probably 9 months!
Abbey was a few months old when I got her, maybe 4-5mo??, and we never had to take her out in the middle of the night.
How long is she left crated during the day? I would start seeing how long she can stay in during the day, gradually increasing it.
Also, you can always pick up the water a couple hours before "last call," that way you know she has pooped and peed and (probably) won't have to go as bad during the night.
We're very fortunate with Moses; at 12 weeks, he sleeps soundly for 8-9 hours with no accidents in the crate.
I put Daisy to bed around 10 every night when I got her at 9 weeks, and when I went to bed at about midnight or 1 am, I'd take her out. We stopped doing that when she was about 5 months old. She never asked and probably would have slept through the night, but it was easy for me to take her out on my way to bed.

Lola, our mellow yellow gal. Gotcha on 1-7-07
Blaise has been sleeping through the night since he was 9 weeks old. He often won't even go out for the last potty run. I open the door for Diesel at 10 or 11 and Blaise turns into his crate instead.
Dee on the other hand must go out late (like 11 or midnight) and if he does not, he'll get me up at 2-3. Teeny-tiny little bladder, methinks.
Sharon, Blaise and Diesel.
I removed water after 7 pm with mine. I took them out before bed (about 10 pm) then when they were small I got up and let them out about midnight. I think they were somewhere between 12 and 14 weeks when they slept through the night without needing a potty break. But the memory is a but fuzzy on that one. I don't remember it taking very long though. Good luck. And hang in there!
I think puppies are like children. They are all unique and different and you will just have to wait and see! You got a great one first time around with sleeping through the night and Lola might just take awhile more. Either way the experience of puppy-hood flies by way too fast and soon she'll be sleeping through the night and will be too big to carry around and you will wonder where the puppy days went. Enjoy it all while it lasts - the good AND the inconvenient
