Like human infants and toddlers, puppies don't have full physical control of their bladders (most pups develop that by about 6 months). So no matter how on top of your housebreaking you are, you really can't consider a puppy fully potty trained until that time. So it could simply be her bladder muscles need to develop a little more.

That being said, urinating in their sleep can be a sign of urinary infection. So keep an eye on her - if these symptoms continue or you see other problems like urinating more often, squatting without peeing, or lethargy/change in eating or drinking habits, get her right in to see a vet. If you've got a vet appointment soon for vaccines or whatnot, definitely bring it up just in case.
