mama. Don't be so hard on yourself - you made it to 20 months and that is fantastic! And like PP said, she may decide to nurse again after the baby is born. That's happened to several women in my LLL group.

My taste changed while I was pregnant. I know because my daughter told me. But the good news is, if you have a good nursing relationship, just keep offering casually. You'll be surprised. She'll try again. For whatever the reason (hormones!) the way my milk tasted fluctuated during pregnancy and my daughter rejected me a few times but nursed on a limited basis. It was never the same after pregnancy of course, but that was ok. She was a bit past 2 when I conceived and almost 3 when I gave birth. At that age they grow a lot in 9 months. She's almost 4 now and nurses 5 minutes before bed on most nights.
