Congrats on this next step. Matching is a lot like a blind date. Everyone (IP's included!!) is nervous and wants the other to "like" them. The key really is to be yourself and try to relax as much as possible. This is where you start to get to know each other, ask questions about each other, and where you find out if you're on the same page about the big issues, such as SR (selective reduction)/termination/genetic testing/thoughts on how many to transfer (tho that really is something that has other factors to consider as well)/expectations of the journey/contact afterwards/etc. It's important to, at the very least, be open and honest about your view/feelings on SR and termination. Those really are 2 of the BIGGEST issues that come up. You'll also think of things you meant to ask later on, which isn't a biggie. Most all IP's are very willing to respond throughout the process and I'm sure they will have their own questions for you and your DH as well. Can't wait to hear how it went!
