You aren't doing anything wrong. Everyones Ab muscles stick out when working. What you are probably seeing is the effect of fat stores above and below your Ab muscles. These don't contract like muscles, it is more like squeezing a pillow and having it bulge out everywhere else. As you lose the body fat their will be less and less to squeeze and the bulge will thin as just the muscle is contracted. You may want to consider squats and deadlifts as these are great at building the core muscles and not just the 6 pack group.
