For those who have been laid off, what does it look like right before? (like HR schedules a meeting with you?). I have this really bad pit in my stomach. No trolling or sarcastic stuff please.

Please try not to stress about layoffs. There is absolutely nothing you can do except prepare (if needed) and continue working as though your job is not in jeopardy.
