No, you should not lose text messages if you restore your new iPhone 5 using a current backup copy of your old iPhone that contains all your text messages.

iTunes will transfer over texts when you upgrade to the iPhone 5 using the Restore from Backup. You'll just want to make sure you have backed up your old phone within the last day or else when you go to Restore the backup you may get a much older back up copy, that will be missing text messages.
