It's a common feeling, I get it a lot. I've never worked on anything with that many users, but I have designed systems that big corporations depend on. It doesn't matter how many times I do it, I still get nervous over it. Most of the time people write technology off as good because "the experts" made it, it gets hard to realize that you are "the experts" that make stuff work.
I've always seen it as a life without nervousness is one that has never done anything worth being proud of.
