Original @@identity value after insert trigger happens

Hi,
I am trying to get the @@identity of a newly inserted row, after a insert happened.
The problem is that I also have an after insert tirgger on the table, that inserts to a log table, thereby updating @@identity. After the insert happens, I want the original ID of the insert, and not the id of the log table. Here is my trigger code:

alter TRIGGER MyTrigger
   ON  pmev
   AFTER INSERT
AS
BEGIN
      SET NOCOUNT ON;

      declare @PK1 int
      select @PK1 = PMEV_ID from inserted       
      insert into pmev2(PMEV_Descr1,PMEV_Descr2,PMEV_Descr3) values(getdate(),@PK1,3)

END
GO
