Weight loss could certainly help take pressure off the spine and reduce pain. Any excess weight that you're carrying puts stress on the body, so it's a possibility that when you're back to your normal weight the pain could go away.
I'd still have it checked out.

Cathy - Thanks for your reply. I was curious if weight loss could also take pressure off the sciatic nerve? I have about 25lbs. to go.

The best advice I can give you is to get a referral to a physical therapist who specializes in pelvic rehabilitation. There are several conditions that can cause the pain you describe, but it's important for you to get the correct diagnoses to be able to treat the condition successfully.
It's not uncommon for PP women to continue to have pelvic joint pain that can also include sciatica, and it's really debilitating, so getting a diagnosis and treatment is a priority.
Let me know how this goes for you.
Until you get in to see a PT or doctor for a referral, you can try applying ice to the painful area several times a day. Also, check with your doctor about whether it's safe for you to take a anti-inflammatory medicine like Aleve or Advil-that can help with the pain.

I have pubic bone pain often and I delivered like 4 weeks ago. I don't think that it has anything to do with my sciatic nerve but my baby did get stuck under my pelvis during delivery so it might still be bruised or something. it usually hurts when I'm laying on my side but the pain subsides once I turn over onto my back. I also get freaky intense pain in my butt when I have gas or have to go to the bathroom which is pretty awful actually. I was just going to ask my Dr. about it when I go for my post partum check up. sorry I can't be more helpful.
