Sckooncup insertion question from a first-timer! Help!

HI! So, got my sckooncup the other day and now I'm putting it to use for the first time today. Had no problems with the fold or insertion, but with the inward curve of the Sckoon, I can't tell at all if I've inflated it properly or if its sealed! It feels like it could possibly be a little 'smooshed' but, again, I was thinking the shape of the cup was to blame. And since the cup is so soft, I'm not even sure it "popped" when I turned it.

Any sure-fire ways to tell I've got this baby IN right? Was so stoked about my cup when it arrived in the mail, but went to double-check some tips before I started this little adventure for real and stumbled upon a horror story where the girl didn't get a 'seal' in and it crept all the way up and got stuck beyond her reach. I would SO SO SO love to avoid a trip to the ER or lady Dr myself, and I'm a little afraid to go for a run like I normally do or be very active at all until I'm certain I've done this right!

Thanks for any help you lovely ladies you can send my way! <3

P.S. My cervix is quite a bit low right now and may have a little something to do with my issues, but again, I'm new at this and have NO clue!
