Hello there.

Thanks for writing.

Ultrasound alone does not decide whether you would deliver vaginally or by cesarean.

As per your report you have no absolute indication for surgery.

You should consult your gynecologist for an internal examination. Depending on your cervical findings, if favorable you would deliver normally.
If the findings show no signs of labor (like soft, effaced, dilated) then your doctor can induce you with drugs to ripen the cervix. If your pains and dilatation of cervix progress normally, then you would deliver normally.

If at any point in labor, your baby goes into distress (decreased heart rate) then you might need a cesarean.
Nothing can be said absolute based on ultrasound findings.
The mode of delivery depends more on your internal findings and how you progress in labor.

Take care.
