Is there a way to embed
the same jpg image many times in a single PDF in Illustrator CS5?

I'm working on a multipage document in Illustrator CS5. I need to send it to the client as a PDF file.
There is a big jpg image that I need to embed in every page. The problem is that Illustrator is treating every instance of this image as a new object and the resulting file is huge. Is there a way to tell it to reuse the same embedded image?
I know that I can keep the jpg outside illustrator and link to it many times, but this is not an option because I need to send one single multipage file to the client.
