Getting my cup on, or rather in : /

So aside from trying instead more than 10 years ago I have been a loyal OB user. Right now as I type this there is a Diva 2 inside me slowly irritating me more and more.

I am over 30, I have had one birth vaginally and it was a doozie. 3rd degree tear and I know my pelvic floor muscles are shot. I have been doing kegels on and off since my son was born (almost 5 years ago) but I still have the occasional sneeze pees and such.

Granted this is my first cycle with any cup but I can feel it. I don't know if it's just the stem or the cup itself. I also feel like I need to pee, but I don't actually have to. I have reinserted a few times and wiggled around but I still feel pressure.

I know the Diva 2 is a larger cup but due to my height 5"9 and my post child birth flash floods (my night flow laughs at OB ultra).

I know where my cervix is but I have no idea how that relates to high/low anything. I am wondering if my super crummy pelvic floor muscles will make cup use unrealistic?

I want cups to work so badly, just once I want to wake up in the morning and not do the thigh squeeze shuffle to the washroom.
