New user problems

Sup, ladies? Tonight is my first night using the Diva Cup (whoo-HOO, newbie in the hizzouse) and I've been kind of experimenting. So I had it in and was just sitting around; I'd been having some problems with sealing and such, but I thought I might be worrying about it too much, too, so I was just leaving it alone. However, after about 30 minutes of lying around, I had this weird feeling in my lower abdomen, like it was burping. Caaaaaan't say I've ever felt that before. After that, there was some major leakage. I'd thought that uuuuugh feeling was the cup sealing - so what was my problem there?

I am kind of worried about sealing; I can grasp the bottom of the cup, but I'm pretty small, so it's been impossible to turn it. And with the Diva Cup being so long there's no way I can get my fingers to the rim to 'swirl' it. I just re-inserted it and let it pop open pretty early, then rotated it while it was still halfway-inserted, so we'll see if that works. Hopefully my vaginal canal doesn't burp again.

And this was just a very long-winded way to say: any tips would be greatly appreciated!
