Have an iPhone 4S. Getting 5s. How to transfer my text messages

I have an iPhone 4S and I am getting an iPhone 5S. I know how to transfer all my music, photos, etc... by backing up my current phone in iTunes, plugging in the new one and restoring from the backup, but how can I transfer my text messages from my old phone to my new one?  I have two VERY important text messages that if I couldn't transfer would really devastate me.  They weren't sent from iPhones.

Sorry. I read on other blogs that iTunes only backs up messages using iMessage. Guess I was wrong?  Thanks.
