Insertion question

I've been lurking here for a month or so, have left comments here and there, but this is my first time posting so I hope you'll bear with me (or point me in the right direction).

I got my Mooncup size B a few days ago, just before the red tide (what my friends and I call our period) arrived. Today it arrived, but I couldn't put the mooncup this morning because I felt I didn't have enough blood to justify using it. (It was old crusty blood if you need to know, and it was just a few drops).

Four hours later, I used the punch-down fold to get it in, and I have to say, I didn't feel any popping when the cup was in me fully and my position in the office toilet didn't quite give me enough room to crouch to put my finger all the way in to make sure it was completely open. However, a tug here and there made it feel like there was suction.

My questions are:

Has anyone else been in the same predicament? If you have, does this mean that my cup is open, or do I need to try to remove it and try again?

Am I missing something?

Thanks in advance. It's my first time with the cup after hearing about them for so long and I'd really like this one to work. >>
