Baths and Cups

I don't know if this is just a weird coincidence or not, but has anyone else noticed their cup collecting "extra" fluid after taking a long (1-2 hour) bath? This has happened twice now: I get out of the bath and empty my cup before going to bed and discover that it has quite a bit of clearer water in it so that the usually thicker blood is very diluted (and I'm on day 2 of my period, so the fluid is never normally this light or thin). I didn't notice anything out of the ordinary while I was in the bath, nor did I experience that "bubbly" feeling that I sometimes do right after I insert the cup.

I love my cup and have NEVER experienced leakage of any kind, no matter how long I leave it in (even when I'm on my "heavy" days), so I don't understand how the bathwater could make its way inside my cup if its properly sealed and not leaking any blood. I inserted my cup like I always do and made sure it popped open and was sealed properly (never had a problem in that department).

I thought the first time was a fluke, but now that it's happened again I'm not so sure. My vajajay isn't irritated or anything, but I'm curious about this. Any ideas???
