Look up elimination Communication. My mum swears I was fully TT by 8mths but my brother wasn't done till 11mths. Night and day.
Ahhh I've heard of this and briefly read about it.
I introduced a potty around 16 months. DD would always have nappy-free time in the afternoon between dinner & bathtime, so I would encourage (but not pressure) her to use it during that time.
I decided not to properly train her until after DD2 was born (a few weeks after DD1 turned two) because I didn't know how she'd react to the baby & didn't want her to regress when I had a newborn, but she was probably ready before then.
She's been day trained (nappies for sleeping only, and generally wakes up dry from her nap) for over 2 weeks now with only a handful of accidents. She's 27 months now.
My suggestion is of she is showing an interest now to get it sorted before bubs comes, otherwise leave it till a little later after bubs comes.
Toilet training with a newborn in tow is the pits. Extra washing, finding toilets when out, dealing with change rooms with two to handle.....
Having two in nappies is so much easier IMO.
Also kids tend to regress when a newborn arrives.
But be warned- I believe I left it too late and made it harder on myself by not taking the window when dd1 was 2and showing an interest, sitting on the potty occasionally. But I was pregnant and couldn't be assed. Now she is 3- defiant and argumentative, not so eager to please. We are struggling to properly toilet train now even though I know she is more than capable.
DD was 2 and a half. She was keen and it was all done in days. DS was 3. He was wee trained before 3 but was terrified to poo on the toilet so the whole thing was prolonged. That's another thread though!
With both kids I waited until they showed interest.

I do it during the summer after they turn 2. Works well for me.
I definitely don't think she is ready now. She's only been walking for 2 weeks. She has been interested in wiping herself though and yesterday she went and got a nappy and tried to put it on over her clothes.
