Probably you should use

\newcommand{\bigdint}{\displaystyle \int\nolimits}

or even simply

\newcommand{\bigdint}{\displaystyle \int}

since \int contains \nolimits already. In 
/Library/teTeX/share/texmf.tetex/tex/latex/base/fontmath.ltx you can 
verify this by looking at the definition of \int:


You may also want to have a look at the amsmath package (see 
/Library/teTeX/share/texmf.tetex/doc/latex/amsmath/amsldoc.pdf), which 
defines shortcuts \dfrac etc. for displaystyle fractions and binomials 
(but not for integrals), and discusses the effect of \limits and 
\nolimits on integrals.
