Buy now? Or wait?

Hello everyone! I've been reading darn near everything on this site and elsewhere and am going to give the menstrual cup a try. I've unofficially decided I'm going to get a Divacup 1 and the reason it's "unoffical" leads to my question: In my research on choosing a cup I've read about finding your cervix first, but that its depth changes during your period. I'd rather not have to wait a month and a half to try out the cup (and start getting through the learning curve) but It'll be a couple weeks until my next cycle and I want to make sure I get a good-sized cup for me and I have no clue how much my cervix might "dangle" during my cycle. Should I just get the Divacup and go for it, or choose a cup after I find my cervix during my period?
Another related question I have:
I've heard leaking is common during the learning curve (and sometimes after) and I'm wondering how much? I plan on using my usual liners as backup when I start, but will I need something thicker?
Thank you everyone!
