Diva Cup pushing on bladder

Hello, I tried looking through the tags and I didn't see one for bladder. Maybe I just missed it. Anyway, yesterday was my first day with a Diva Cup. I am 32 and have never been pregnant, but I ended up buying the size 1 to start with. I don't mind moving up a size if I have to. Anyway, insertion seemed to go pretty well (it's a lot easier than the Nuvaring!). I was able to form a seal and no leakage. The only problem is that I feel a constant pressure on my bladder and some small bladder cramps from time to time. I actually had to take it out last night at bedtime because I couldn't sleep. Do you think this is a placement issue or the type of cup. I've read on here that there are softer cups. Maybe I need one of those?
