She may be having dreams. It may be her molars coming in. Or a growth spurt.
I would not move her into your room if she has been sleeping good in her bed up until now. These things happen, sometimes, even after a child has been STTN. Its normal. Moving around things usually makes it worse, if the child has been already comfortable in the surrounding already.
I would try giving tylenol tonight before bed to see if it is her molars. When my son was cutting his two year molars(started at 21 months and ended at 24 months...rough three months of sleep) he would wake like that. Sometimes he just needed to be settled back to sleep. It was like the pain of teething would wake him, but not be too much to keep him up all night. I gave tylenol a lot during that period. It genuinely helped him, so I know it was the teeth. After they came in, he was fine. When she cries out, after you check on her, can you check on her without her seeing you, to see if she will settle back down on her own? Or will she not settle without your pat, etc. Reason I ask is because this could become a habit for her, so the less interaction you have to take, the better. If you have to soothe her, then by all means do it, but just make it short and sweet, like youve been doing. Another thought is to buy a sleeping bag/grobag, she may be cold and I JUST LOVE those sleeping bags. They have helped my babes sleep well. This is more than likely a phase, tho annoying, be blessed she has been STTN up til now!!!
