All your reports are normal except glucose level at 2nd hour, which should be less than 140 mg/dl.
But sometimes the normal values can differ from lab to lab.
So you once discuss this possibility with your doctor and follow her advice.
Usually mode of delivery depends on many factors, so just by blood sugar levels we cannot decide the mode of delivery.
Wish you Good Health, If you are satisfied with my response please rate the answer after closing the discussion.
Take care.
