New diva cup user - leaking problems

I've searched through the FAQ's, but I just don't get it or I don't get how to use livejournal. 

I'm confused - is the cup supposed to go around the cervix? The pictures that came with the diva cup didn't seam like that. 

I can get it in, but I don't know how to aim for anything, there really doesn't seem enough room to do anything. I try and push the walls of my vagina to get it open, but I can't move it around at all. 

The first time, I had it in for 12 hours and didn't have any leaking and it was half full. But since then, I've been lying in bed all day and when I get up to go to the bathroom, I immediately leak a lot and I take it out and it's not that full. I've finally put a tampon in because I'm tired of getting blood all over changing it every couple hours. 

Any advice would be great, thanks!
