In brief: Usually yes

Sciatic pain can be quite painful - especially during pregnancy.
It can result from the increased pressure from the fetus or a herniated disc. The good news is that most patients have full resolution of the symptoms by the end of the third trimester and after delivery. If your symptoms are severe or aren't going away, seek medical attention.

In brief: Usually

Most do even if due to a disc herniation.
If due to a disc herniation, 90% get better without surgery. If just due to body changes related to the pregnancy, it will resolve after the birth.
