[IP] diabetic baby not developed???

At my Ob/Gyn appointment last week my doctor told me something that kind of 
startled me.  She said that babies of diabetic women do not develop as fast 
in the womb as babies of non-diabetic women.  She said that most babies at 
38 weeks gestational are developed enough to be delivered but those of 
diabetic women are probably not developed as much and should wait until the 
full term of 40 weeks to be delivered.  Has anyone heard of this?  I have 
done extensive research on diabetic pregnancies and I have never heard this 
Thanks for any advice and input!

Mel...31 weeks pregnant and counting down :)
