Need encouragement to wait to test!! 12 days PIUI


My husband and I just experienced our first <a href="">IUI</a> 12 days ago after trying to conceive naturally for 2 years. I had 4 mature follicles and almost a 5th. I am supposed to get my period on November 9th, and my doctor ordered a blood pregnant test for the day before, on the 8th.

I’m so anxious to know if it’s a yes or no and part of me wants to take a HPT tomorrow morning, but I’m worried it may be too early. I don’t want to give myself a false positive or negative and get my hopes up or down! The wait is so hard! Any suggestions about waiting or testing?? If I should wait, any suggestions on how to keep my mind off of it?
