Boy, this is a tough one b/c I am also a POAS but have been refraining from testing BEFORE 12 dpo. Either way, just like Gillian said, if you do test, prepare for the likely possibility of a BFN. I hope the IUI worked!
Lucy I got on here this morning for this very reason!!! OMG we are too alike right now it's funny...but I caved. I tested and it was neg. I am not that bummed...yet...so yes please prepare yourself if you do. Let us know what you decide .

I'm a POAS pusher/enabler and notorious for testing early, so you know I won't saying "don't do it"! Like everybody else said, the key is bracing yourself for a BFN and remember that if you get a BFN it's because it's early. Other than that...enjoy!
LOL you ladies crack me up... I on the other hand am the EXACT OPOSITE! I am a POAS Procrastonater.... I would wait nine months without a period before testing if i could. I HATE seeing that BFN, it just triggers something in side me, and i get sooooo sad
SO, i would tell you to wait wait wait.
After Norrina's post about the stats of BFP's during "early" tests.. I am not testing till at least Friday which will be 12 days past IUI.. and even then if I get a BFN.. I'll test again Saturday and Sunday.. or until I see that ###### BFP!!
I havent bought any HPT's yet.. casue with me.. have stick will pee!
my brain tells you to wait but everythings else is saying PEE. don't listen to me it can't be good.
