So I've only used cups for one and a half cycles and I'm still not sure about these things (about to buy a yuuki cup). When I've had them in while sitting or really just "being" I feel air escape. Like it feels like blood escaping but I check and there is none so it's air. So.. what does that mean? Is this supposed to happen? Does it mean it is being crushed? Does it mean it is the wrong size?

That's completely normal. It means the air inside the cup is being replaced by blood and, well, it has to go somewhere. ^^ The "bubbly" feeling is a bit odd and can be mildly annoying at times, but it's harmless.

oohh I didn't think of that, the blood is replacing the air.. what if the air gets displaced up into your uterus? Okay now I am over thinking it and getting deep.. no pun intended

Re: oohh
it shouldn't because the cervix isn't actually opening up that much. The path of least resistance will be for the air to bubble out of you so you get that weird "queef" feeling. I'm still not used to it and am always afraid I'm leaking!

Re: oohh
I have the same thing happen! Maybe you should wear a backup pad for a while while getting used to how the cup works for you, just to be on the safe side. Are you having any leaking? If not, I think it's probably the right size.

And I absolutely LOVE the Yuuki cup! It is one of my very favorite cups if not my favorite. I have the large cup. It's not too hard and not too soft and it is one of the cups with the largest capacities. I would definitely buy that one again.
