Sleep positions

Is it ok to sleep on your right side? I've googled sleeping on the left side promotes better blood flow to the baby. Have any mothers slept on there right side and the baby was delivered safely?

It is fine to sleep however you are most comfortable. The only position truly discouraged is flat on your back due to suppression of a major artery.

I sleep every single way. Even on my stomach. I haven't got big and didn't last time either.

Last time I slept any position where I was comfy. And everything was fine. This time I find I'm sleeping on my side and wake up on my stomach I'm 22 weeks and quite big already.
