JRT keeps barking until I give In

I have just started to let my 2 yr. old female JRT sleep with me. I just felt her crate was okay during the day (for 2 to 3 hours) but not for sleeping all night. I do put her in the crate around 10pm till I'm ready to hit the sack around 12:30pm. During that time she barks on and off (sometimes almost a series of small annoying barks) which wakes the other person in the house up (who has a hard time getting back to sleep once wakened). What should I do? Keep her in my bedroom by herself until I'm ready to go to bed also? I also have to bring her outside several times at night until she's done her business. Any suggestions?
