Unhappy Dog doesn't sleep through the night

My not quite 2 year old dog (adopted in June) does not sleep all night through. She wakes me up approximately 2-3 hours after going to bed and urinates. Then 2-3 hours later she wakes again and urinates and poops. She then goes back to sleep for the last hour before we get up.
She is a black lab and boxer mix, about 50 lbs. I feed her at 6am and again at 5PM. She has a fast metabolism and poops 3-4 times a day. I am going to change her food to a grain free and hope that lessens the amount of poop but I have never had a dog that didn't sleep at night. I am as sleep deprived as if I had a newborn! Any suggestions to get her to remain asleep?

Questions:
Is this new behavior, or has she been doing this since you adopted her a few months ago?
Have you changed her food recently? What kind of food is she getting, and how much?
Also, have you consulted a vet to see if she has a urinary tract infection?

If this is different from her 'normal' behavior, you need to have a Vet examine her to be sure there is nothing going on in her urinary tract, such as an infection or??? Normally at least the two year old dogs I know of, have no problem getting through the night without having to get up and pee. How long can she go during the day?
