Negative Blood Pregnancy test but positive Urine pregnancy test?

I had a negative blood pregnancy test but a positive urine test. I still have an appointment Monday, but I'm a little worried. My blood HCG level was 2.3, but why would the urine test show positive? I'm having all kinds of pregnancy symptoms and I don't understand.
Is it possible that the blood test was a false negative? Thanks so much(:

Hi Sara. Blood tests are considered slightly more accurate than at home urine tests, but both can be highly accurate, and both can product false positives. You wont really know until you speak with your doctor. Did you take another HPT to check?

It actually was not an at-home test, it was a urine test I took at the doctor's. I'm going to take an at-home test tomorrow, I think, just to see the results. Thanks so much.
