In brief: Cervix and placenta

Will move apart
as a balloon expands, (uterus), points on the balloon move apart, this will likely occur as the uterus grows, if no bleeding, little risk of harm. Ask your doctor to be sure.

Previa can create a type of partial abruption, along the edge of the attachment.
