First time Instead Softcup user

I just recently heard about menstrual cups and have been reading quite a few of the posts here in this community. Since I'm just about to start my period and I don't have enough time to get a reusable cup I decided to try Insteads. My question is how do you know when it's in far enough? I inserted it the way that the product instructions said, and when I first put it in it felt like it was behind my pubic bone. But when I went to check on it, it had kind of moved down. Not like it was being pushed out, just sort of more towards the bottom of my vag. Is this normal? Should it always be tucked behind my pubic bone?

Also on a side note, I was trying to find my cervix to see how deep it is and it was nowhere to be found. I don't know if I'm just not able to reach far enough inside because my belly gets in the way, or if I just have a really deep vagina. Any insight would be greatly appreciated.
