Newbie Questions

Hi everyone,
I'm trying out my cup for the first time, and I have a few questions that I hope you can answer (I'm sure you can - just lurking on here has been super-helpful).

I have a Diva Cup size two (I have a long vagina and I'm 30) and I had no problems at all inserting it with a punchdown fold.  It opened up fine and feels pretty good.  It'll be a few hours until I know if it's leaking or not.

While I can't really feel the cup in at all (even the stem isn't bothering me) I do feel the teensiest bit like I need to poop.  Is that normal, and is there anything I can do about it, or do I just need to get used to it?

Also, I noticed as soon as I got the cup in the the stem slid over to the left side of my vaginal opening, and seems pretty content to stay there.  Is that normal, and if not, what do you think might be causing it?

Again, thanks so much for being here.  I'm really excited to switch from tampons to a cup, and I'm so glad there are people here to help!
