Sleeping through the night

Our puppy is 13 wks old. How long should I expect him to be able to hold his pee? I stay up till 11, let him out, and put him to bed in the crate. He starts whining like clock work at 5AM. This is starting to get old. So he is good for about 6-7 hours (some days he goes for 7hrs, but that is rare). I don't know if he really has to pee or he is just wanting out of the crate. Should I just let him whine till I'm ready to take him out?

I take his water away at around 8 PM. And I'm on top of taking him out to pee.

I would like to be able to get more sleep, since my sleep is generally not as restful as I would like it to be.
