Yes, I did push it down first - this is not the first microSD card I have
used :-)
Now, after a lot of practice, I can actually manage to get the card out
using my fingernails.
But it is very hard, because space is extremely tight in there.

As a workaround, I have attached a bit of tape to the end of the microSD
card, and bent it (the tape) upwards. This gives me a "handle" that I have
the chance to get a grasp on.
