Hi ARWA, first of all you should know that placenta can migrate as pregnancy advances. At 16 weeks its difficult to say about normal delivery. If placenta migrate upwards then you can have trial for normal delivery. this black colored bleeding is old collected blood. you should not worry for it. of course you should take complete bed rest
