Belly has gone soft

I'm 38+5 weeks and have woken up today and the bottom part of my belly has gone really soft (basically feels like a beer belly).

From my belly button upwards, it's still rock hard. I'm presuming it's because his head is now fully engaged (he was 3/5 palpable on thursday)

Anyone had this?

Yes I have had this. I am 34 weeks and sometimes the whole left hand side of my stomach is soft, I think the baby just prefers being on the right!

Yep I get much more firmness on left and today the bottom part of belly has lost it's firmness (worried what will look like when fully deflated now!) I have no idea about head def being engaged but head has been lower as felt pressure on pelvis.

I'm 39 weeks today with my first.
