TTC and very light periods

I had a mmc in December, discovered at 8 week scan that my baby had stopped developing between 5-6 weeks and was helped to a medical miscarriage at what would have been 10 weeks.

First period after was a few days late and from what I can remember, normalnormal but I've noticed that my periods now are extremely light and I think getting lighter. Prior to MC my periods were medium to heavy, had to change pads tampons several times a day else they would soak through, last couple of days, of course I changed sanpro but wouldn't have been as necessary. Period lasted about a week.

Periods since MC much lighter, my current one has not even produced enough to fill full one pad and I don't think it will even last 4 full days, I'm currently at day 2.5 and only notice blood if I wipe, nothing fresh seems to be on the towel.

I'm trying to concieve again, worried that the very light periods are an indicator that I have too little uterine lining for implantation, any ideas how I can thicken it?

Added worry as I found out just over a month ago that my mum went through menopause at 35, I'm soon to be 40, so very much working with time against me. Hoping that this isn't the first sign of menopause.

Drs attitude to date re menopause has been we'll wait till your periods stop, then worry about menopause. I did manage to get blood tests for FSH etc, they showed as normal.

I guess I'm asking if this is a similar situation to that which anyone else has been through? Did you manage to concieve? Any ideas for thickening lining? I'm already eating leafy greens, liver and Brazil nuts and almonds and drinking raspberry leaf tea.

Also, anyone had these symptoms and been through menopause/ it not led to menopause?

Have you done another pregnancy test? One person i know went to the dr concerned about her periods getting very light and discovered she was 26 weeks pregnant.

My periods have always been light, short, and close together. I conceived within 6 months for both my pregnancies, in my late 30's.

A pos test would be amazing, but sadly, the MC was in December, I had an internal scan afterward that confirmed it was complete.
I've been TTC for several months since, so have done many preg tests, all negative sad
