Hmmmn. you must mean "fear and trembling." Can't do better than that.

How about the phrase butterflies in ones stomach? Luke hinted at it, but let's lay it out in full.

A-tremble? [half stealing from Miss A] If you're looking for one single word, that is. The phrase on pins and needles comes to mind. Welcome.

Thanks for the suggestions. I'm a little disappointed I can't find a single word, as muh as I like the proposed idioms. Thanks for the help!
