Are you weighing her at the same time each day? Are you making sure you are always weighing her at the same point in her feeding cycle (eg. only before feeds or only after)? Weight can fluctuate based on these things. Also, if she has become more physically active, this can sometimes slow growth down. Or are you using the same set of scales?

I think the suggestion of emergency room is overreacting. But definitely take her to a doctor to get her checked.
