Thanks for your query.You are in 37 weeks of pregnancy and getting intermittent bleeding since a week.This could be due to separation of a marginal placenta that happens during last weeks of pregnancy as the internal Os starts opening.As regard the growth of a child you can get your ultrasound scanning done to confirm the status of fetus.Please do not worry as you are approaching a full term and nothing is going to change the situation.Be happy and have a normal delivery and a healthy child.
