terribrown is an unknown quantity at this point

If the patient is currently pregnant and the record is documenting gestational diabetes of a previous pregnancy, then V23.49 (history of condition affecting management of current pregnancy) could be used.

If not pregnant but just noting conditions in PMH, then V12.2 (history of disorder of the endocrine system) could be used.

Default gestational diabetes

What about ICD 10 for ultrasound for patient para 0 gravida 1 currently pregnant with gestational diabetes? The guidelines say an O code followed by an E code...

if the patient has pre-existing diabetes and is currently pregnant then you use the O24 code with the appropriate E08-E13. If it is gestational diabetes then you use the O24.4- code and no E code. If you look under the E10-E11 categories you will see that O24.4 is an excludes 1 exclusion. Excludes 1 means you cannot code the two codes together. I am not seeing in the guidelines where you are to code the O and the E for gestational diabete. Could you paste that passage please?
