Last Thursday i went to take a blood test to ses if i was pregnant. They told me that they will call me and let mw kow if the blood test came back positive or negative. So they call on monday and told me that it was negative so my husband and i were going to wait this weekend to see if i got my period. So today i got my baby sitting money and only got $15 which we both agreed on. So i went to the family dollar store and got a prenancy test. And i took it imminently when i got home. And it came out positive.

My question is can blood test be wrong when a lab loojs for positive prenancy and negative. Felt like thats what happen to me i got robbed.

There are 2 types of pregnancy blood tests. One test will give an hcg level, and one will just come up positive or negative. Your hcg may not have been high enough if they were testing for an exact number when you had the blood test. Hcg typically doubles every 48-72 hours. If your test was positive, then congratulations!

There are false negative tests and false positives.

Sounds like the amount of the hormones wasn't high enough for a positive test the first time. A couple of days later they were. 

Welcome to the human race.   

And congratulations.  :)

Its possible that your hormones were not high enough at the time for it to show up. Hope you get a positive!
