I wouldn't worry about it. A few of my spider have done this with no adverse effects. Just keep an eye on her as usual, make sure she is warm and has access to water. Spiders have no control over when they can moult, so maybe she didn't have time to flip over.

I had a Theraphosa blondi die a couple of years back from moulting upright. It happened while i was away in Cuba, and by the time i got back her fangs had hardened pointing outwards so she couldn't eat :cry:
