Sort of like Diva, trouble with Lunette, what cup should I use?

Hi there, This is my first post but I have been lurking for a looooong time. I am 31 with 2 kids and I've been using the Diva (whichever is the one for those with kids, 2?) for about 18 months. It's pretty good but I had to trim the stem all the way off so it didn't poke me. I can usually get it in all the way, but sometimes it feels like it's falling out. I have to really jam it in to get it to where I can't feel it sometimes. I also have trouble getting it to open up on occasion, though I *think* I have figured that out. Usually I don't have leakage, but sometimes it will randomly leak a little even when it's not full. Maybe this is normal? It just doesn't seem perfect and the way all you ladies talk about your cups I keep thinking there must be something better out there?

So I tried the Lunette, pretty sure it's a large since I have kids, I probably got that one. I tried it through one cycle and had lots of trouble. It's quite stiff, compared to the Diva, so when I have it all the way in, it presses on my bladder and makes me feel like I have to pee. It is hard to get it to open up and the stem (which I haven't trimmed) sometimes pokes me a lot. Feels like a pinch. I thought maybe I would try to sell it so I haven't trimmed it. Then when I take it out the suction is so strong I feel like I may pull my uterus down or something weird like that.

So, that said, should I just stick with my Diva and deal with the issues (which are not nearly as bad as tampon/pad issues)? Is there something you just KNOW would work for me that I should try? Anyone want to buy/trade for my Lunette? Thanks for the help!
