Stem hanging out - can't get it any higher?

Hey gals,
My Lunette cup just arrived today and after I put bubs to bed I did a dry run.  Firstly, hooray - it was comfortable! After a few attempts I didn't have any real issues inserting it and it felt like it opened up and sealed okay but I can't seem to insert if very far and the stem keeps poking out (ouch!).  I'm not sure if I should trim the stem yet or wait until I actually get my period to see if anything changes.  I don't mind wearing it low if that's where it wants to go but I just can't get it in any further.  Maybe my fingers are just too short :)
