Sorry I can't help much, but I am very relieved to see someone else in the same boat! Mine is in two weeks and I am slightly terrified! I was given the contact details of an assessor a couple of weeks ago, and arranged the date with him. He provided quite specific details of what he wants on the day and was helpful (if slightly scary). I would also be interested in how people have failed. I am fairly confident that I have convincing evidence for all the standards, but I work in a department that is a little light on formal, recorded assessment and I have never written plans and evaluations for lessons on a regular basis. I would be much more confident if I felt I could bombard the assessor with paperwork! I am also, inevitably, scared about the lessons (even though I have been observed hundreds of times). Good luck with the sleeping; I am finding evening baths help!
