I'm pretty sure that Mr. Q and I are not the first couple to nickname their baby while in the womb.
We actually found out that I was pregnant pretty early, around 4-5 weeks, and when we did, we were super curious to know what size it was (wouldn't you be?) And when we looked it up, the all-knowing internet said that our baby was approximately the size of a raisin.
And we all know if it's on the internet, then it's got to be true.
Baby Raisin! Of course! And the name stuck. Because really...who likes calling their unknown-gender-kid "It" or "He/She" or "The Baby"?
Raisin just seems to work. 
Hopefully Raisin doesn't mind this and doesn't get offended when he hears it. Although, we could always tell him later that "I'm sure it was really stuffy there in the womb and all, and everyone knows it sounds like you're underwater - we would never refer to our little angel as a wrinkly, dried fruit."
**artist's interpretation of our floating little miracle - not to scale, or reality for that matter**
