We just got our Case Number today too!!! Praise God!
Another thing I though that was worth sharing is that I got an ABD# instead of a MNL#-- despite indicating on our I-129F that I would be applying the visa in the Manila Embassy. (I live and work in Dubai and we put my Dubai Address down in the form, too)-- I am guessing they assumed since I live there, it would be the embassy I would go to.
Which is great because I am in Manila for the past 2 weeks, hoping that the MNL# comes through but I am due to fly back to Dubai on the 17th so this worked out really great, thank God!
