Is this a good size?

I went to the doctor this pass friday.  Well I just found out how big my baby was. She was a little over 5lb and I am only 30 Weeks and 4 days today. I am stational diabetic too. My question here is is she the right size or is she too big? Or on risk.

Its okay my first son only was weigh in 6 pounds 7 ounces... and he was so helathy... also my aunt gave birth to a baby that was only weighing 5 pounds 6 ounces and was also healthy:)

Did the Dr seem worried? If not it shouldn't be a big deal plus ultrasounds are normally off by a bit. But five pounds at 30weeks sounds bigger to me anyway

My previous 2 were about that size and they were 8.3 and 8.1 at birth.

The doctor sounded a little worry because of my suger levels. If I don't take care of it she might get bigger and it'll be hard to have a regular birthing.

Cinnamon helps regulate the sugar levels.. it absorbs sugar. ...thats why diabetics do.... eat oatmeal and add one tbsp of ground cinnamon... do it twice a day.. it will help... I know about nutrition so pls take my advice...
