There is very little sugar, thats all I can say. Even with two raspberry additions (even large additions), I would imagine your gravity wouldnt go up more than 0.5%. Sorry I'm not of much help, but fruit additions are not where you get much of your fermentables, and raspberries aren't a very sweet fruit.
