Of course I don't know how many shares you have but if you don't want to sell any before earnings look at buying a put to protect the downside.
It looks like you could buy a Sep $135 put for around $14. That would mean for each put (cost is 100 x 14 =$1400) you would be guaranteed to be able to sell 100 shares for $135. Probably not feasible option if you have <40-50 shares total.
