She really has you well-trained, doesnt she? She gets absolutely everything she wants, including dominating the bed at night.
she needs to be in her own bed for starters. It is normal to wake every 60 to 90 minutes at night, but she needs to learn that this does not mean that mommy and daddy are at her beck and call at that time - parents also have rights. If she wakes, she has to understand that she rolls over and goes back to sleep. Or plays quietly in her own bed. But waking the rest of the household is most certainly not OK.
When she wakes, check that she is OK, reassure her, then put her down and go back to bed. If she carries on screaming, she is really just telling you that she doesnt like the discipline.
I'm sure you have been given many different techniques to get her to sleep once she is howling - choose the one you prefer, and use it.
Frankly, the only reason to keep her in your bed at this stage, is if you enjoy being tired all day, and dont intend having more children.
