So I just had and ultrasound. When it was over my underwear was wet. It wasn't pee. And not just a little but wet. My question is could my amniotic fluid be leaking and it was being pushed out as the ultrasound tech pressed on my stomach?

No. It was probably discharge.

An ultrasound shouldn't make you leak amniotic fluid. How far along are you? Call your OB.

Could it have been the gel being used? It could have been pee. I know no one wants to think they may have peed themselves but it is definitely possible. The tech pushing around very easily could have caused a little pee to slip out without you even realizing it.
How far along are you? And are you feeling any leaking still? If your water had broken you would have more coming out.

It's not pee. It's not discharge. My underwear was soaked if it was pee it would smell like pee. I am 25w3d. I am not saying my water broke but I've heard a leak is possible.

You could try coughing to see if more fluid comes out, or call your OB to see if they want you to go to L&D to get it tested.

No, it could be pee. So many women go through this swearing up and down it couldn't be pee, but guess what, it usually is. If it is your fluid leaking, it would be a pretty steady thing.
