ABOUT ME

Hi there! I’m Tani De Gregorio. The one behind this little blog. ‘Our big Dubai adventure’ started about two years ago when I quit my job in a multinational in Switzerland to follow my husband to sunny Dubai where we are living now with our two little munchkins, Luca (3) and Maëva (15 months).

This blog is not about the glamorous life of an expat wife. There’s just too many baby wipes and too few high heels in my life for that.

Instead, it’s about our daily adventures in the sandpit. About motherhood away from home. It’s about the kids. About fun things for them to do. Things you might not have heard of otherwise. It’s about workshops. And cool places to explore. In this amazing city we call home. At least for a little while…

Tani, thanks for a well written and honest post. Your description of the awfulness of not knowing is so true. With dr google predicting anything under the sun, it definitly adds to your anxiety. I can’t offer any medical advice, but praying that you get some answers soon, and that it’s can be treated easily. ??

Such an emotionally charged story Tani which honestly, as a Mother, has definitely hit a chord. I sincerely wish I could recommend someone or share advice which could help you move forward. Will be thinking of you all. Big hugs X

When I was training as a nutritional therapist there was a mum in my class who’s baby had blood in his stool. So much blood that his nappy looked like it had raspberry jam in it. They did every test and eventually found out he was allergic to rice. It’s not common but can happen. Or rather than being from the food it could be from pesticides or environmental pollutants on the food. It could also be an allergy to a chemical or mould etc.

Sending a prayer for your precious girl and for you too. I know you have been to many daughters but I would like to recommend a doctor. The situation is not similar but my son was (what we thought) severely colic and we went to so many doctors thinking there was something else. However, it was only Dr. Maurice who asked a few simple questions and revealed to us my son was being over fed. I was told again and again I’m not lactating enough which meant I was over feeding him. He got used to the pattern and the… Read more »

OMG, Tani. I got a little teary reading about this probably because i was in a similar situation with my baby girl. She was diagnosed with urinary reflux. Glad that in time the issue just went away but that didn’t stop us from worrying every single day if she would need numerous checkups or worse, surgery. Now every night as we put her to bed we talk briefly about things we’re grateful for, ranging from “croissant” to “mommy” to “toys” (that’s been the standard lately). Healing thoughts for Maëva…and thoughts of strength for you & your family. I know this… Read more »

I am sure this must have been a tough post to write. All this emotion in it made me cry and think about my own children and how thankful I should be. So thank YOU for the reminder and all my thoughts with your little one and with the worried mama….

I feel you pain Tani. But trust me, just when you feel you can’t take it any longer, it starts getting better. Be strong, for the sake of your family. You will definitely get your answers soon. Warm hugs to you and the kids.

Oh my God Tani, this brought tears to my eyes. Hope little one gets well soon ?. And I think you are right when you talk about the second ones. I had really hard time with getting along the fact that I now have 2 to give them all my love and bE thankful for and not only 1. Your post is so touching and it’s a wake up call for everyone to always be thankful for even the little things in life. God bless your angels

I found your blog accidentally, one day when I was looking through pregnancy stuff ( you know as pregnant-hormone driven usually women do) in my first trimester,you were already into your 3rd trimester I guess. I followed the updates since that day, and the birth of little Maëva gave me a lot of joy! I’m sorry that she has been sick, I guess there’s nothing more heartbreaking than watching your kids in pain, but I’m certain she’s gonna be just fine. Lots of prayers and love.

What my kids taught me is that we knew it all when we were two. That we somehow forgot. And need to learn it again...
