Namatta na

At the end of ep 1 of Strike Witches 2, at 21:48 (in my copy) Miyafuji has just gotten through complaining about a week on the Emily flying boat, and Sakamoto says namatta na, Miyafuji. Which embarasses Miyafuji and makes her sit up and blush.

The sub I've got translates it as "You've gotten soft, Miyafuji." But that seems to be a case of taking liberties. Unfortunately, I can't figure out what she really said.

It's the past tense of a verb. That I do know. It might be "nameru" "to experience something bad" but that doesn't seem right. Anyone care to help me out here? What was it?

2 OK, I can buy that. Sounds perfect. And the translation was pretty accurate, in fact.
