I'm doing an exercise stress test next week. What can I expect?

I'm 26 and I don't have any sort of diagnosed heart condition (yet?). I'm female. There are all sorts of heart problems in my family.
So, I know I'm going to run on a treadmill with little ECG things stuck to me. But what else? What do I wear? Will I feel up to going to work afterward (i.e.: sitting at my desk)? My sense of balance is terrible; will I have a bar to steady myself?
I'm a bit out of shape (it's painful to breathe when I exercise heavily) - is this going to suck?
I have a call into the doctor's office, but I won't get a call back until Monday. I don't want to be freaked out all weekend!
