Brief Answer:
You can sleep on right side.

Detailed Answer:
Hello dear,
Thanks for trusting me about your health care .
I have gone through your history and understand your concerns.
We usually prefer to sleep in left lateral position because foetal circulation is better in this position.
But if you are comfortable in right lateral position you can sleep in this position.
Hope found useful, feel free to ask more information.
Good luck.
