If my pregnancy test was negative then came back positive a couple hours later could I be pregnant?

In brief: Yes

Very early in pregnancy, the level of HCG (pregnancy hormone) in your urine is at the edge of the sensitivity of the test.
At this point, due to manufacturing differences, one test might be negative and another positive. Most likely you are pregnant. Test again in a week to be sure or see your doc for a blood pregnancy test. Best wishes!
