Stuff happens!: That's why it's so important to use birth control regularly & consistently if you don't want to get pregnant (assuming you're having sex). Make sure he also wears a condom each & every time to minimize risk of passing on or catching a sexually transmitted disease/infection.

2 ships crossing...: It sounds like you were juuust pregnant - like maybe a few days - when you took the first pregnancy test; and then later, your pregnancy progressed enough to be detectable by the test. It isn't that you weren't pregnant. It was that you weren't pregnant enough for the test to see it yet.
