Uterine lining size?: At 36, periods are sometimes delayed b/c of failure to ovulate. Ovaries need more stimulation before a mature egg is released, so more estrogen is produced, leading to a thickening of the uterine lining. Ask your gyn for advice regarding ovulation induction and a hysterosalpingogram (x-ray of your tubes to make sure they are open) to avoid another ectopic.

Probably not: An "enlarged uterus with a 12 mm lining" is not likely to "mean early pregnancy". A blood betaHCG / pregnancy test is much more reliable and accurate.
