The first positive lookahead is correct -

The second part is where the problem lies -

We can write

Regex can be a bit confusing at the beginning. Believe me it will take sometime to understand it.

I used to solve regex problem with regex101.com. It is very helpful for me. Hopefully it will be for you too
