Can you say 31 follicles????

As you know today was my first follicle scan after starting the stimming meds. Well "Wanda" (the ultrasound wand) told us that I have 18 follicles on my left ovary and 13 on my right!!!! I could not believe it....seriously 31 follies??
Dr. Robin said I am responding extremely well to the drugs, but she did say she does not think we will get 31 eggs. They range in size from 3.5mm to 11 mm, with most of them falling in the 8-9 range. So they dropped down my Repronex dose for tomorrow.
There was one thing I was upset about. Remember that cyst I had aspirated last Friday that liked to have killed me? Well IT'S BACK!!!!! It has completely filled up with fluid again!! I was like NO WAY!!! Dr. Robin said they can clearly see now with all the mature follicles that it is definitely ovarian and not my tube filled with fluid, she said it will not affect anything, and she will aspirate it again when they do the Egg Retrieval (after I am under anesthesia) thankfully! And on a thankful note, they got the pathology report back on the fluid they aspirated out of it last Friday, and it showed no malignant cells and no infection. Praise God!
I go back at 7 am on Friday to check on them again, and then Sunday for the final scan!! It's actually happening! We are so excited!
For those of you who know my Mom, please say a prayer for her. She is still feeling really bad, and even had an ER visit last night. They say she is going to be okay, I just wish she would feel better now! I know she would appreciate the prayers!
Ending tonight with a scripture:
"We will shout for joy when you are victorious and will lift up our banners in the name of our God. May the LORD grant all your requests."
-Psalm 20:5
