When Kristie Moore got the call inviting her to the Olympic trials for the Canadian curling team, it took her awhile to answer -- because she was newly pregnant.

So newly pregnant, in fact, she hadn't even had time to tell her family the good news.

Once she told them about her impending bundle of joy, Moore gladly accepted coach Cheryl Bernard's offer to join the team as an alternate. Now, at five-and-a-half months pregnant, Moore is representing her country in the 2010 Vancouver Olympic Winter Games. "So far, so good. I'm feeling great," she tells the Arizona Daily Star. "No problems."

Moore has curling in her blood -- her mother curled while pregnant with both her and her older brother, Chad. She tells the Star she hopes the family tradition continues with her own offspring.

"I'm really hopeful it's a curler," Moore says of the baby, due in May.
