In brief: No and Yes

Having gestational diabetes does not mean that you will have to have a cesarean section.
Lots of gestional diabetics deliver vaginally. Important to control your blood sugar because uncontrolled diabetes can lead to large babies which do need a cesarean. All gestational diabetics on medication typically deliver by 39 weeks or undergo induction at 39 weeks. One week prior to one's due date.
