I have never heard of that, but it sounds bad. You should either go to the emergency room, or make a doctor's appointment if you are not too worried. Abruptio (ab-RUP-she-oh) placentae (pla-SEN-tee), also called placental abruption, occurs when the placenta breaks away from the uterus ahead of time. The problem can occur anytime between the 20th week of pregnancy and the beginning of delivery. All or only part of the placenta may break away from the uterus. Placental abruption can be dangerous for both you and the baby. You could lose a lot of blood, and the baby could die from lack of food and oxygen.

I never heard of placenta sounds?? You should be able to hear your baby's heartbeat by week 11-12 the latest.

You could be having placenta problems, you should contact a doctor and ask for an ultrasound.

yes they can go to 41 weeks and very rarely to 42 weeks but after 41 weeks there can be a danger to the baby as the placenta starts to stop working efficiently.
