Catherine, don't know if you usually make written notes at doctor's visits or not but now would be a really good time to do so. You have a huge amount going on just now so no wonder your head is spinning!
Both taking a list of questions you want to ask to each visit and making notes during each visit are really good ideas. Even if you are hearing and understanding what is being said during a visit, I can almost guarantee that you won't remember all of it without some notes. I learned that as a young mother when one of the boys was sick -- the doctor's instructions were perfectly clear until I got home and tried to remember the details.
Your ob-gyn has already given you some questions to ask the MO; perhaps you could check with him or her if you should be finding out anything else?
Of course you feel like you are in limbo because you are waiting on lots of information. Generally once a treatment plan is established and is in progress that feeling gets better. Your situation is complicated by your autoimmune disorder but it looks like that is being taken into consideration in developing your plan of treatment.
Sending hugs your way as you gather information and make decisions over the next few weeks. Welcome to the club no one volunteers to join but know there is lots of support available here and if one of us can't answer a question it is highly likely that someone else can. Keep in touch, please.
