Ignore the noise of hour-to-hour news. The factors that will determine who controls the House in 2019:

1) Trump's consistently low approval
2) gerrymandering (a handicap for D's)
3) voter turnout and mobilization

#3 is up to you.

And don't forget, it's worth getting out the vote for state and local races.
Voting rights in Florida, Michigan, and Missouri!
Governors who will oversee redistricting!
and more.

A finder to show the importance of the votes that you turn out:

It should be noted that fundraising is remarkably high this year. How to optimize that effort (note that the highest leverage is generally in the same districts and states whether you are an R or a D): election.princeton.edu/2018/10/17/tri…
Also, register people to vote! In California, the deadline for online voter registration is in two days - Monday October 22. Register yourself - and register others: registertovote.ca.gov
The following gubernatorial candidates will ensure split-party control over redistricting - and prevent gerrymandering:
Florida - Gillum
Pennyslvania - Wolf
Wisconsin - Evers
Maryland - Hogan
