Kristie Moore is curling for 2 at the Olympics in Vancouver. The Canadian curler is 5 months pregnant! The 30-year-old is showing, and she says her bun in the oven isn't hindering her at all, according to Yahoo. She said in her 8th month, there will be some issues. For now, she's hoping her team will win a medal.

Moore apparently found out about her pregnancy just weeks before her team invited her to join the team as an alternate. They were more than supportive when she divulged her big news. Cheryl Bernard, the team leader, said: "She is young and fit. There's no reason we'll have any problems, and she'll be out there."

As long as her four teammates stay healthy and able to curl, it's unlikely Moore will get any time on the ice for the event, as she'll only be called if needed. Even if she doesn't play, she'll still get a medal if Team Canada, which is favorite for the win, grabs gold.

She's one of only a few Olympians to (possibly) compete while pregnant. Ninety years ago a Swedish figure skater won a gold medal during her first trimester, and, in 2006, Germany's Diana Sartor took 4th in the skeleton.
