Ultrasound- can you trust it? UPDATE!

I'm not sure if you ladies remember, but last week we were told we were having a little girl. I was 18 weeks along. I wanted a girl so bad after having 3 boys, but out of curiousity..would you ladies trust the ultrasound on the gender? I've heard a few stories about the ultrasound being wrong but with me being 18 weeks, I would think it would be obvious. She was moving around so much and crossing her legs. I never felt  this way with my boys but they weren't shy what so ever. It was like "BAM! I'm a boy!" Lol! I have my second anatomy ultrasound tomorrow for confirmation but just wanted to see what you ladies thought.

Here's the u/s of her-

** UPDATE:

I had my second ultrasound yesterday and she's definitely a girl. My doctor looked at her at different angles down there and I counted 3 lines. Phew! Now I don't have to return anything I bought. Lol! Thanks for the responses ladies!

 Since you are past 16 weeks, I would trust it.  Plus, this pic is pretty clear.

I'm just in shock and can't believe it, I guess. Lol!

I would trust it. We wanted our 2nd to be a girl so badly. She was such a wiggle worm it took almost the entire u/s to show the goods...that should have been our first clue LOL, our son wasn't shy at all!!! Anyway when she said "girl parts" I cried so hard I never looked myself. When the doc came in to tell us everything looked good I said "you guys are sure its a girl, right?" The sweet man turned the machine back on and looked himself! He checked every possible angle and said "100% girl"

They know their business. One would hope if they had a bad angle or something, they would be honest about that.

That's my fear. Do you remember how far along they were?
