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.

What happens if blood is behind the placenta at 7 weeks pregnant?

Actually, the bleeding behind the placenta at 7 weeks gestation is called a "subchorionic" hematoma. This happens sometimes in pregnancies when the fetus attaches to the uterus. This is not necessarily a primary indication of a placental abruption and most pregnancies with subchorionic bleeds resolve after a few weeks
