Having done a bit of digging, this is the picture of the suggested zones for testing from Dr Bernstein's book.

But I'm with 6of10 - I'll stick to the inside of my fingers. ta!

Ha- unlike 6of10, I have had to rub my fingers to get the blood flowing and enough to test (especially in the winter)- only 2 spots are gushers!

A few months ago I had 2 EPIC FAILS.

1) Testing in BF grandparents bathroom (no counter), I had lancet fails, had to adjust and restick 3 times, getting not enough blood the first 2, and the awkward placement of the 3rd resulted in a smeary mess.

2) Testing at my desk, I was squeezing because the well was not enough, and it SHOT a big line all over my glasses.

So sometimes, it just happens.
