If the points are noisy, try a Savitzky-Golay - You can find the algorithm
in Numerical Methods. It will always be 2 points behind your data (it needs
5 points to work), and can't get started before you acquire the fifth data
point. It will smooth out noisy derivatives, but fast changes are also
smoothed out. The change will be spread over the 5 data points in a sample.
