8 month old is not peeing and extremely fussy, doc office is closed... Advice please!!

My daughter usually has a full diaper when she wakes up. I put a new diaper on right before bed and by morning she is full. Well Today i went to change her and it was completely dry. After her bath i put a new diaper on and that was about 10pm. She didnt wake up this morning till 8:00am, you would think her diaper would have been full! But it wasnt and that really really concerns me, especially since she has been extremely fussy. She wont let me put her down and she cries constantly!!
Any advice until i can get a hold of a doctor? Something to help me out atleast until i can get a hold of the pediatrician.

thanks ladies...

Also- i expected her to pee thru her diaper because she had water through out the day yesterday and had a few sips of water for dinner and usually when she has water she will pee a LOT...and she was completely dry.

  • ER or urgent care NOW. She could be dehydrated. She is too little to be waiting until the doctor is open.
