Sounds like you have done a SUPER job house training her!
I'm not sure if you have her sleeping near you at night, but another tactic, in addition to the very clever one you and Esme have been discussing in terms of lengthening her time... is simply to let her wake you up if she needs to go out.
This would only work, of course, if she sleeps near you and you know you would wake up if she started to fuss... and if she is used to "asking" in this way to go potty.
I've had puppies that could sleep through the night at under 3 months old. They were always right next to the bed in their crates, and they would wake up and fuss a little if they needed to go out, so there was always that option for them. And usually within a couple of weeks of coming home they did not need a middle of the night potty break. But anyway, the point is that she is plenty old enough now so how ever you want to do the transition should work!
