is it safe to sleep on my stomach while i have an enlarged spleen/liver from infectious mononucleosis?

Yes: Your body has quite a tolerance when it comes to illness & it would let you know if it didn't like sleeping on your belly by not allowing it. I'd avoid bicycle riding, jogging, or contact sports, anything where you could fall & traumatize both organs, until their swelling subsided.
