Diva cup noob

So I got my diva cup (size 2, since i've had a child) the other day and Wednesday was my ring removal day. I have been using the cup with success as far as I can tell, with only one issue. Yesterday morning (Saturday, day 3) I went to take a bath and removed the cup for comfort. (I was having some cramps, so I figured the bath would help.) I crawled back in bed sans cup and when I woke up, I had a bizarre cramping feeling. It was my cervix and it was obviously unhappy. I'm trying to determine if this was possibly caused by the cup. My cervix sits low, like NEVER had any issue finding it, and I just recently changed BC from Mirena to the nuvaRing. My first instinct is to attribute the cramping to having a period again (mirena was wonderful like that!) but then I got to looking into all the positioning diagrams on the cup. I get it in, twist it and it opens fine, but my cervix literally sits inside of it though. Is this ok? All the diagrams I see show it just hanging out inside the vaginal opening nowhere near the cervix so I'm sort of confused. I've not had much discomfort since then, but still want to know if this location is ok. I've read on here the diva cup is notorious for suction, so maybe I just need to get used to it... Any pointers would be exceptionally helpful! Thanks in advance!
