Unless you have a risk of pre term labor there is no need to quit breastfeeding. Many OB's are very ignorant to breastfeeding while pregnant, I wouldn't take his advice unless you have a medical issue.
If you want to wean, it should be gradual. By now she is probably eating solids right? Do you nurse for naptime and to get her to sleep at night still? If so, those are usually the last two feedings to go! You can slowly cut out all the other nursings, I don't know how many you have. Distract her, offer her snacks or other drinks etc. Try and go outside and do fun things during normal feedings for a distraction!
For naptime and bedtime you can read instead of nurse. We do that! My daughter self weaned though but reading definitely helped her get to sleep. It's our quiet time.
Good luck and good job for nursing so long!
